Alexander Johnson to Test Draft Waters
According to the Tampa Tribune, Florida State junior center Alexander Johnson has announced that he will enter the NBA Draft. However, he will not sign an agent, leaving the option of returning to the Seminoles open. Coach Leonard Hamilton said “We will give (Johnson) and his family all of the support they need as they go through this decision making process. We have a clear understanding of the NCAA rules and understand how this process works. We will make sure that (Johnson) and his family have all of the information available to them during this process.” Johnson averaged 13.2 points and 7.4 rebounds per game last season. The Seminoles are still waiting for teammate Al Thornton to make his decision regarding the NBA.
