TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) -All-America guard James Harden is leaving Arizona State for the NBA.
The 6-foot-5 sophomore and Pac-10 player of the year says he will hire an agent, ending any chance of returning to the Sun Devils.
``I felt I'm ready for it as far as taking my game to the next level,'' he said at a news conference Wednesday. ``It's a dream come true. It's my dream since I put a ball in my hand, so why not take the opportunity?''
Harden led the Pac-10 in scoring at 20.1 points per game and was the first Arizona State player to be named a first-team AP All-American.
