Is the Commodore point guard off to the NBA Draft after two seasons in Nashville?

Jim Brown-USA TODAY Sports

News broke early on Saturday morning that Wade Baldwin IV, Vanderbilt point guard and potential lottery pick in the 2016 NBA Draft, had hired an agent and was ending his college career after two seasons in Nashville.

About 12 hours later, college basketball scribe Adam Zagoria refuted Hamilton's report.

Baldwin addressed the reports, sort of, on Saturday afternoon -- though he wasn't saying much either way.

Baldwin has the opportunity to grab a guaranteed NBA contract after a breakout season in 2015-16. The Commodores' court general averaged 14.1 points, four rebounds, and 5.2 assists per game. He stands a solidly-built 6'3 with an 82-inch wingspan and has made 42.2 percent of his three-point attempts as a college point guard, giving him the "three-and-D" credentials most teams are looking for.

He's been projected to go everywhere from sixth overall to the second round of the 2017 draft.
