Saint Louis Big Man Entering Draft
According to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, Saint Louis center Ian Vouyoukas has announced that he will enter the NBA Draft. However, he is just “testing the waters” and will not hire an agent, leaving him the option of returning to the Billikens open if he doesn’t receive the feedback he wants. Vouyoukas said, “I’m doing it for the exposure”, while SLU coach, Brad Soderberg, said, “Ian’s dream, and virtually every player in college basketball, is to one day play in the NBA. We fully support Ian’s desire to be a professional and are happy there is a mechanism that allows him to gauge his draftability.” Vouyoukas, a first-team all-Atlantic-10 selection this season, averaged 13.9 points and 7.4 rebounds per game.
