Oklahoma State basketball: Scouting ahead to the 2013-14 season

The Cowboys could look quite similar, or vastly different next season, depending on the stay/go decisions of Marcus Smart, Markel Brown and Le'Bryan Nash, who are all contemplating jumps to the NBA as underclassmen.

In limbo

G Markel Brown. Made another major stride as a junior. He'd be one of the Big 12's best returning players if he comes back.

G Marcus Smart. Already the Big 12's best player, his decision is the toughest, weighing a major payday against a run at history.

G Le'Bryan Nash. Finally settled into a role and found his stride in his second season; most likely to return.

G Jéan-Paul Olukemi. A knee injury wrecked his senior season; now he hopes to petition the NCAA for a sixth year.

Who's coming

G Stephen Clark. A premium scorer — more than 3,000 points for his prep career — he'll have a major role; point guard if Smart departs.

G Jeffrey Carroll. A 6-5 guard who's an accomplished shooter, but also a physical presence who can drive and score.

G Detrick Mostella. Athleticism reminds of Markel Brown, and he's already an accomplished shooter and scorer.

C Gary Gaskins. A 6-10 junior college transfer, he uses his athleticism to excel as a rebounder and shot blocker.

F Leyton Hammonds. A versatile forward, Hammonds was the MVP of District 4-5A in Texas.
