Did J-Will make the right call?

The NBA lockout has ended, and Jordan Williams has a two-year deal with the New Jersey Nets reportedly worth about $1 mil. But was making himself eligible for the NBA draft the right move?

Like the chicken or the egg question, we'll probably never know whether J-Will's exodus prompted Gary Williams to retire, or if GW's retirement prompted J-Will to turn pro. We also don't know - at least I don't - if personal or family financial issues weighed heavily on his decision.

That speculation aside, though, do you think J-Will made the right move by cutting his college career short by two years? The lockout played a role, no doubt. But would it have made more sense to wait until after his junior season, considering the amount of talent that chose to avoid the potential problems posed by the lockout in 2011? Or, should he have stayed through his senior season and maximized his potential in college (and risked injury) to make himself eligible for a draft which was not affected by the lockout?
