Marcus Smart to NBA draft

Marcus Smart's tumultuous NCAA career is over. As expected, the Oklahoma State sophomore point guard will enter the 2014 NBA draft, taking his immense talent -- and fiery attitude -- to the next level. Smart entered the year as one of the five highest-rated prospects, but saw his stock slip a bit in the face of a late-season suspension and occasional shooting struggles. He's still ranked No. 8 in Chad Ford's Top 100, though, and an almost-certain top-10 pick. What does the future hold for Smart?
