Where could Hummel wind up? Tell us in the comments and read the full story inside.
The NBA Draft is June 28 and there will be a lot of evaluations between now and then for older guys like Hummel and the younger guys, too. NBA.com has a comprehensive section on the 2012 Draft, and it includes a good list of the early entries this summer. Earlier this month we took a look at some of the past early entries from the Big Ten. Remember: Indiana’s Christian Watford and Cody Zeller are staying while Illinois’ Meyers Leonard is going. From Ohio State, Jared Sullinger is off to the pros while DeShaun Thomas stays put. And Michigan fans are thrilled to know Trey Burke is coming back, too.
