Cincinnati Junior Keith Williams has entered the NBA Draft with the intent of hiring an agent.
“After progressive conversations with my family, coaches and mentors, I’ve decided that I will enter the 2020 NBA Draft with the intent of hiring an agent; however, I will be keeping my options open," Williams said.
The Brooklyn product averaged 12.6 points and 4.6 rebounds per game this season.
Despite declaring, there's still a chance he comes back to Cincinnati for his senior year. The NCAA allows student-athletes to sign with an NCAA-certified agent and gain feedback while maintaining the opportunity to return to school.
“I am in full support of Keith’s desire to enter the NBA Draft process. This is a process that I encourage our underclassmen to go through and I look forward to assisting Keith during it.” Coach John Brannen said.
Williams has until June 3 to decide whether to remain in the draft or return to school.
