 PITTSBURGH (AP) -All-America center DeJuan Blair of Pitt will declare for the NBA draft but has not yet hired an agent, leaving the possibility he could return for his junior season.
Blair is projected as a mid- to late first-round pick, but his status could change once he goes through the NBA's pre-draft workouts. If he doesn't hire an agent, Blair would have until June 15 to withdraw his name from the June 25 draft.
Pittsburgh attorney James Cook issued a press release Wednesday that he will advise Blair in the pre-draft process, before Blair picks an agent. Among Cook's former or current clients are Memphis assistant coach Orlando Antigua and boxer Roy Jones Jr.
Pitt officials did not comment on Cook's statement, but Blair and Pitt coach Jamie Dixon have called a 4 p.m. news conference.
