Additional Information
Sources told ESPN.com that Haston met with members of the Indiana coaching staff Wednesday and said he intended on remaining in the draft after playing well at the Chicago pre-draft camp last week.

Shot well enough to get into the first round, which will likely keep him in the draft.
Andy Katz - ESPN.com (June 11th)
Haston is playing well enough in Chicago to get a second look. He said he'll make up his mind after the camp about returning to school and still hasn't done enough to get him into the first round

Strengths: Low post scoring skills are very advanced due to his huge array of offensive weapons ... Very good on the low blocks even if his opponent pushes him away from the basket Haston can shot a beautiful sweeping hook shot from 16 feet out .... Can spot up and hit the jumper even added an occasional 3-point shot to his evolving face up game .... Good rebounder due to his long arms not afraid to bang underneath and holds the ball up high after grabbing the rebound so that opposing players don't get easy strips ....Coaches dream does all the little things that most players don't do .... Real soft scoring touch in the paint converts a high amount of flip-ins, short turnarounds, and put-backs .... Excellent work ethic has improved each year since coming to Indiana which is impressive considering that he wasn't highly recruited out of high school ....

Weakness: Biggest question mark for Haston is that he isn't very strong or athletic something, which the NBA has, loads of .... Defensively he has much to learn doesn't possess the lateral quickness or the upper body strength to keep up with the power forwards of the NBA .... Could stand to work on taking the ball to the hole with a more physical presence so that he can draw easier fouls .... Weight not really a concern but could stand to add 10-15 pounds .... Looks a step too slow for the NBA doesn't have that lighting quickness that other players in his draft class posses ... Stronger defenders tend to disrupt his game a little which is usually the case with finesse players ....
