Roby to decide between Colorado, draft on Saturday

BOULDER, Colo. -- Colorado guard Richard Roby says he will decide by Saturday whether to return to college for his junior season or go pro.

Roby, the leading scorer for the Buffaloes the past two seasons,
worked out with the Los Angeles Lakers on Wednesday and expects to
have met with about 10 teams before he decides.

He told the Daily Camera in Thursday's editions he is encouraged
by what NBA general managers have told him.

"I'm getting a lot of feedback and learning a lot from every
workout," he said. "They all feel I have a lot of potential. They
say I have everything in my game. I just need to work on everything
and keep getting better.

"Some of them tell me I'm going to be in the league a long
time," he said.

Roby's half brother, Kenyon Martin, plays for the Denver Nuggets.

Roby made himself eligible for the NBA draft but did not hire an
agent, preserving his eligibility to return to the university.

After his workout with the Lakers Roby declined to say which way
he was leaning.

Underclassmen who have declared for the June 28 draft have until
Sunday to decide whether to remain in the field or return to
school.
