Jordan Will Test Draft Waters
Texas A&M freshman center DeAndre Jordan has announced that he will enter the NBA Draft. However, he will not sign with an agent, leaving open the possibility that he will return to the Aggies for his sophomore campaign. "I just want to test the waters and get a good feel for where I might be drafted," Jordan said in a statement. Coach Mark Turgeon supported the decision. "DeAndre wants to explore where he might be in this year's draft," he said. "This is the first step in that process." The 7-foot Jordan is projected as a lottery pick despite not living up to the lofty expectations he had when he arrived in College Station. He started 21 games, averaging 7.9 points and 6.0 rebounds per game.
