Mitchell Robinson's road to the NBA has been a dramatic one, but he appears to have finally made a decision about his immediate basketball future.

The five-star center who enrolled at Western Kentucky, then left two weeks later, announced his plans to forego college and enter the NBA draft.

Robinson didn't play competitive basketball during the 2017-18 season, which could be seen as a red flag by NBA organizations.

The drama hasn't stopped there. Robinson will reportedly skip the NBA combine and the interview stage of the process.

This could potentially hurt his draft stock even more.

However, recent mock drafts suggest he'll be selected in the middle of the first round of the draft. As Jonathan Givony says, Robinson could already be assured by a team that they will select him with their pick.

The NBA Draft takes place on June 21.
