To no surprise, Villanova's Josh Hart is still torn on NBA decision

New, comments

Hart met with the media, and will likely wait until the last possible minute to decide.

Two days of the NBA Draft Combine are in the books and Villanova Wildcats guard Josh Hart has had a mixed bag so far. In the testing portion of the draft, Hart measured out well compared to other guards and showed off an impressive vertical as well.

But in the 5-on-5 portion of the day, Hart was relatively quiet. He finished the game without hitting a field goal and went just 1-2 from the FT line. He did defend well and hit the glass - two of his trademarks - but it seems like he might have some work to do to show his full arsenal on day two. He'll get that chance in another set of games on Friday afternoon/evening.

Hart also met with the media yesterday, where it was revealed (H/T Adam Zagoria) he interviewed with the Knicks, Wizards, Thunder, Blazers, Pacers, Washington, Grizzlies and Jazz.

Hart said he's currently 50-50 on his decision, with a workout with the Clippers already in the books and a workout with the 76ers on deck for Monday. His final scheduled workout is with the Hawks on May 24th, and it looks like a decision will be put off until then. Via Zags:

"I work out with the Hawks on the 24th," he said. "I'm going to come back that night. Hopefully my parents will come up that night [from Maryland], I'm going to talk to them over dinner. Hopefully talk to them on the 25th, talk to Coach [Jay] Wright, talk to Coach Baker [Dunleavy] and then see what's best for my family and I."

Also of note - Hart said a first-round guarantee would be nice, but won't be required for him to stay in the draft.
