Father: NBA draft decision for ACC player of the year T.J. Warren could come Tuesday

North Carolina State's T.J. Warren will take a little longer to decide whether he'll enter the NBA draft as a sophomore.

Warren's father said Thursday in an interview with The Associated Press that the Atlantic Coast Conference player of the year could be ready to announce his plans Tuesday. Former Wolfpack player Tony Warren says he wants his son to take his time and "be 100 percent sure," though he expects the 6-foot-8 forward could be a top-20 pick.

Warren averaged 24.9 points and shot 52.5 percent to become the third player to lead the conference in scoring and shooting percentage in the same year. Warren was named a second-team All-American earlier this week.
