Texas' Tucker to submit name for NBA draft
AUSTIN - Texas junior P.J. Tucker, the Big 12 player of the year, is expected to submit his name for the NBA draft but won't hire an agent so he can keep his college eligibility.
Tucker has scheduled a Monday afternoon news conference to make the announcement.
The burly 6-foot-5 Tucker led the Longhorns in scoring and rebounding, averaging 16.1 and 9.5 rebounds. Texas won a school-record 30 games and reached the Atlanta Regional final of the NCAA tournament before losing to LSU.
He has until June 18 to pull out of the draft, which will be held June 28.
Texas sophomore forward LaMarcus Aldridge has already declared he will leave school for the NBA.For more coverage of the Texas Longhorns, check out OrangeBloods.com.
