Jordan Williams Stays In 2011 NBA Draft, Hires Agent, According To Report

Jordan Williams will stay in the 2011 NBA Draft, as he has hired an agent, according to a report by the Washington Post. Hiring an agent means that a player foregoes his college eligibility, so if the report is true, Williams cannot going back to Maryland.

According to sources, Williams will be represented by agent Andy Miller of ASM Sports, whose clients include NBA players Kevin Garnett and Chauncey Billups.    

Williams has had one foot out the door for a while now, as he has skipped several classes and nearly didn't attend the school's award banquet. The sophomore center departs as the Terps' leading scorer and rebounder last season, averaging a double double with 16.9 points and 11.8 rebounds per game.

Williams is expected to be a borderline first-round pick in the 2011 NBA Draft, and his stock has been aided by several prominent prospects electing to stay in school. An NBA scout told the Washington Post that Williams is "without a doubt" a first-round pick.
