SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) -Rodney Stuckey, the best basketball player in Eastern Washington history, will not return for his junior year.
Stuckey signed with Goodwin Sports Management of Seattle, which prevents him from returning to college if he is not drafted by an NBA team.
``It's tough to lose Rodney, but it is such a phenomenal opportunity for him,'' EWU coach Mike Burns said. ``For us to have one of ours in the NBA is spectacular.''
Stuckey, a 6-foot-5 guard, said Wednesday his agents received information he might be a first-round draft pick.
``They are telling me that teams out there really like me and like what I do,'' Stuckey said. ``This draft is kind of different. There are a lot of big guys out there, but there are not a lot of combo guards like me.''
Stuckey led the Big Sky Conference in scoring last season at 24.6 points per game. He was second in assists with 5.52 a game and second in steals with 2.45 per game.
