Check out what Andy Katz had to say about the Cal big man in ESPN.com's college hoops section:

Cal coach Ben Braun hopes to hear from Hardin over the weekend about his decision, but Hardin is certainly acting as if he's staying in the draft. And he may have a good case.

There is definite interest from New Jersey at No. 17 and Golden State at No. 18. If either team can assure Hardin that he's not going below them, he may stay in the draft. Hardin's original goal was top-20, and he may just have that within his reach at this point. Hardin was limited last season with injuries but has always been an NBA talent.

Cal center DeVon Hardin had a tough junior season at Berkeley because of a foot injury and only played in 11 games, but there's no doubt that he's an intriguing player. If he can continue his rebounding and shot blocking at the NBA level, DeVon would be a nice piece for the Dubs. Along with Colorado State big man Jason Smith, DeVon is scheduled to work out with the Warriors this Sunday June 17th.

Is DeVon Hardin a good pick for the Warriors at #18?
