NBA Draft News and Notes: A day after Chase Budinger signed with an agent, reports have surfaced that Jordan Hill will also be entering the draft. No surprise here. Hill, who had an all-american campaign averaging 18.3 ppg and 11.0 rpg, is projected as a top ten pick and is expected to sign with Bill Duffy (aka the guys that paid OJ Mayo).

Jeff Goodman is reporting that DeMar Derozan is leaving USC and will be signing with an agent. We've heard the same thing elsewhere as well. UPDATE: It looks like all three Trojans (Derozan, Daniel Hackett, and Taj Gibson) will be making themselves eligible for this years draft. Contrary to prior reports, however, it seems as if Hackett is the only one that will be signing with an agent for now.

A week after James Johnson announced he is leaving school, Jeff Teague has announced that he will be testing the NBA Draft waters. That leaves Al-Farouq Aminu. No one seems to know with him. Some are reporting that he has told the Deacon's coaching staff that he will be back, while other outlets say he is gone ... for good.
