Report: Friday Announcement

Marvin Williams Sr. told local newspapers that all three Tar Heels will hold a press conference on Friday afternoon to announce their NBA intentions.

"The last conversation we had, he was talking about staying," the elder Williams said. "Marvin didn't tell me what he found out new [from Coach Roy Williams]. He just told me he's going to announce it Friday. He might change his mind."

Williams Sr. said his son would be joined in a news conference by juniors Sean May and Raymond Felton. May's father said he had no knowledge of a scheduled announcement. Attempts to reach the Feltons were unsuccessful.
