6/11 DBD: Decision Day Looms!

So next Monday's the big day, when Ryan Anderson and other underclassmen have to decide whether or not to stay in the NBA draft.  Andy Katz checks in with Anderson here:

The pros for going back to Cal are tantalizing too. There was a coaching change with Anderson's coach Ben Braun getting fired. He landed at Rice and the Bears got former Stanford and Golden State Warriors coach Mike Montgomery. Montgomery didn't get the Warriors to the playoffs during his tenure but no one can dispute that Montgomery has been one of the most underrated college coaches the past 20 years, resurrecting Stanford's program and turning the Cardinal into a national team that competes for Pac-10 titles and multiple wins in the NCAA tournament.

"The pro is that Montgomery came in and we can look forward to winning more games and more attention coming to Cal," said Anderson, who declined an invitation to the NBA pre-draft camp in Orlando. "I hear that my draft stock could rise in next year's draft. They say that ever year that the draft isn't as strong. That's what makes it so tough. I'm trying to get as much information as possible." If the 6-foot-10 Anderson (21.1 ppg, 9.9 rpg) does return to Cal then the Bears are a legitimate top three Pac-10 team. Without him and the Bears will likely improve on last season's six Pac-10 wins but may fall short of the NCAA tournament.

In Pac-10 news, Josh Shipp is returning to UCLA.  So there's that to look forward to, I guess.
