In an interview with the Indy Star, Shawn Teague, Marquis’ father, says his family will meet next week to discuss and decide whether Marquis will stay at school or enter the NBA draft:
“We’ll look at it from every angle we can and decide what his best interests will be,” Shawn Teague said. “Right now, I don’t know. We haven’t even really had a chance to process it yet.”
Teague is currently projected to go in the mid to late first round, with draftexpress.com showing him going to Philadelphia with the 18th pick. But for now, he and his family are reveling in the moment:
“We really haven’t talked about it yet,” the elder Teague said. “We really haven’t had time even think about it with the national championship this week. We’re still all kind of in that moment.”
The deadline to decide is April 29th.
