Washington, Sloan Declare for Draft

Arkansas junior forward Michael Washington has announced that he will be entering the NBA Draft. However, he will not hire an agent, leaving open the option of returning to the Razorbacks for his senior season. “Michael has put his name in the draft to test the waters, but he is not hiring an agent," head coach John Pelphrey said. "We will continue to work with Michael to help make certain he has the best information available and makes an informed decision regarding his future. He is working out and continuing to work hard in school to finish the semester strong." The 6-9 Washington averaged 15.5 points and 9.8 rebounds per game this past season.

A&M's Sloan Tests Waters

Texas A&M junior guard Donald Sloan has entered his name into the NBA Draft pool. Sloan is simply testing the waters, not hiring an agent so he can return to the Aggies if he does not receive the feedback he wants. "My dream has always been to play in the NBA," Sloan said. "I appreciate Coach [Mark] Turgeon's support as I go through this process. I love A&M and my teammates and if things don't work out in the draft, I'll come back and get ready for what could be a special season for us next year." The 6-3 Sloan averaged 11.8 points and 3.1 assists per game last season.
