Seton Hall junior forward Sandro Mamukelashvili will declare for the NBA Draft and test the waters without hiring an agent, he told NJ Advance Media.
Even if he does hire an agent, he could return to campus for his senior season if he cancels all contracts with the agent.
The 6-foot-11 junior from the Republic of Georgia averaged 11.9 points and 6.0 rebounds for the Pirates this season as they won a share of the Big East regular-season title.
“It’s a great opportunity to see where he is at and where we go from here,” Pirates coach Kevin Willard told NJ Advance Media. “The draft process now helps kids make educated decisions and we are looking forward to going through the process with him.”
The NBA Draft is set for June 25 at Barclays Center, but could be pushed back due to the coronavirus pandemic.
