CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) -Clemson forward James Mays made himself eligible for the NBA draft but did not hire an agent, leaving open the possibility of a return to the Tigers for his senior season.
Mays, 6-foot-9, averaged 12.2 points and 6.4 rebounds last season. He missed the second half of his sophomore season because he was academically ineligible.
``I feel this is an opportunity for me to explore my options,'' Mays said Wednesday. ``This will give me a chance to evaluate where I stand as a player.''
Clemson coach Oliver Purnell said he knew Mays was leaning toward the June 28 draft.
I'll help him get as much information as possible,'' Purnell said. ``Certainly, it should be something he should strongly consider if he's going to be a first-round selection.''
