Fair dominated the paint for SU

Syracuse forward CJ Fair is still on the fence about his decision to enter the NBA draft, Syracuse coach Jim Boeheim told SNY.tv on Tuesday.

Fair is expected to have a press conference sometime this week to formally announce his decision.

“No, I don’t think so, I don’t think so,” Boeheim said when he was asked if Fair would announce Tuesday. “We’re going to have to wait and see what happens there.”

Fair led the team in scoring (14.5 ppg), rebounding (6.9 rpg) and 3-point shooting (46% 3pt) during his junior season. He lead Syracuse to the national semifinals, where they were eliminated by Michigan.

Boeheim’s statement followed a day where two conflicting reports came out about Fair’s future.  NBA.com’s David Aldridge said that Fair would be entering the draft, but in a later report, BustingBrackets.com’s Evan Williams said that Fair was staying for his senior season.

Fair’s name doesn’t appear on the 2013 mock draft board on NBAdraft.net.
