CORVALLIS, Ore. (AP) -Oregon State forward Marcel Jones plans to make himself available for the NBA draft but will not hire an agent.
The 6-foot-8 junior will likely return for his senior season, but would like to ``test the waters and see what happens,'' he said in a statement released by the school Thursday.
Jones led the Beavers in scoring last season by averaging 15.3 points. He also averaged 7.9 rebounds and 1.5 steals.
``It's a dream of everybody that plays college sports to further their careers professionally,'' Jones said. ``If I don't stay in the draft, then when I come back to OSU I know people will have raised expectations for me. I'll come back a better player and ready to make us a better team.''
Jones won't take classes this spring because of the draft, so he must take summer courses to remain eligible.
