ATHENS, Ga. (AP) - Georgia guard Travis Leslie says he will
remain in the NBA draft, the second top player to give up his
senior season with the Bulldogs.
Leslie announced Tuesday that he's definitely going pro after
saying last week that he wanted to enter his name in the draft
without hiring an agent.
Coming off just their second appearance in the NCAA tournament
since 2002, the Bulldogs face a major rebuilding job. Their two
best players have entered the draft. Forward Trey Thompkins already
said last week he would hire an agent, ending any chance of
returning to the Bulldogs.
The 6-foot-4 Leslie averaged 14.4 points and 7.2 rebounds as a
junior, second to Thompkins in both categories.
