Nik Stauskas and Glenn Robinson III are expected to announce their NBA Draft decisions during a press conference on Tuesday at 3:30 p.m.

Stauskas broke the news on Twitter on Monday evening and the Michigan Athletic Department later announced a ‘Michigan basketball’ press conference at 3:30 p.m. on Tuesday.

ESPN’s Jeff Goodman tweeted that Robinson is also expected to declare for the draft during the same press conference, but Mitch McGary is ‘still wrestling with his decision‘. MLive’s Brendan Quinn confirmed with McGary’s father that he doesn’t plan to announce on Tuesday.

“He’s still back and forth on it,” Tim McGary said.

Tim McGary said he expects to meet with Mitch McGary on Wednesday during Michigan’s annual basketball banquet to discuss the decision further.

“As far as I know, he hasn’t decided anything,” said Tim McGary, who was asked if there was any chance his son would make any announcement during Tuesday’s press conference and joked, “He better not.”

ESPN reported last week that Stauskas would declare for the draft – something Stauskas quickly denied at the time. Stauskas was the Big Ten Player of the Year and is projected as a top-20 pick in the 2014 NBA Draft. Robinson has reportedly selected an agent and is projected on the edge of the first and second rounds. McGary remains undecided and is also projected as a borderline pick after missing most of his sophomore season due to back injury.

    Would you say this means they’ll be doing individual press conferences for all 3?

    • Would make sense to give everyone their own moment. GR3 and Mitch announced their return together last season though and they are obviously very close.

        Do we have any idea what time tomorrow?

        • No the AD has yet to formally announce a time or place…

  • Presser announced for 3:30 p.m. tomorrow. Names not included in the announcement. Last year they were, so perhaps could be others involved on Tuesday as well.

    Good luck to Nik…..he can really shoot the 3 ball. What a great fit for JB and UM. His success will bring many others like him for years to come. What a great 3 ball salute!

    Is Michigan one of the few schools to do “pressers” for these things? Seems like for most schools, the school just announces the player’s decision.

    Is it possible Caris may be looking to dash for the NBA as well? JB wouldn’t say if he asked the advisory board or not, and he may not want to play when 2-3 of his fellow sophomore class are gone.

      I couldn’t see that happening, but boy would that suck. To lose Mitch, Glenn, Nik, AND Caris. Holy cow, no thanks…

    • Anthony

      Why? He will be the star of the team and in a weaker draft be most likely a lock as a first rounder.

    • JohnNavarreIsMyHero

      I hope not. He is getting there, but he would be a late second round pick at best.

  • BC

    R3 isn’t even close to ready…he is closer than me…but nowhere even close to Nik.

  • Anthony

    I still think they will be good regardless if Mitch comes back or not the size issue is going to be a problem but I expect Walton and Irvin to make big jumps. Chatman and Wilson will both have to play a role. Is Doyle ready to compete next year I don’t know also this is actually pretty good going forward for recruiting 5 nba players in two years and 4 first round picks. I think gr3 will be taken in the late first good teams will look at his upside and take a gamble on him.

    GRIII will be Drafted before both Gary Harris and Nik Stauskas.

      lol good joke

    I know there wasn’t any doubt after yesterday’s reports, but I have a source with knowledge that can confirm 100% Glenn is gone.
