Ronnie Brewer to Enter NBA Draft
According to the Associated Press, Arkansas junior Ronnie Brewer has announced that he will enter the NBA Draft. However, he will not hire an agent, leaving him the option of returning to the Razorbacks if he does not receive the feedback that he wants. Brewer said, “I just want to work hard and just test the market to see where I can go. If they were talking late first round, I don’t think necessarily it would be worth it to keep my name in there and I would probably come back.” Arkansas coach, Stan Heath, agrees with Brewer’s choice. “It probably is a very smart thing for him to do,” he said. “He definitely wants to play in the NBA, he knows that’s a big part of his future.” Brewer, a 6-7 wing, averaged 18.4 points, 4.8 rebounds, 3.3 assists, and 2.6 steals per game this past season, and was also named to the all-SEC first team.
