Creighton's Maurice Watson Jr. will test the NBA draft waters this year.  The junior point guard has declared himself eligible for this year's draft.  However, Watson has not hired an agent.  That means Watson is still eligible to come back to Creighton next season.  The NCAA pushed back the deadline to withdraw from the draft until after the NBA Combine this season.  This will give players a chance to interact with NBA personnel and find out where their stock sits and what they can do to improve it.

Watson isn't listed in any mock drafts at the moment, so it seems likely that he will return to Creighton for his senior season.
