Elmore, 2 teammates declare for NBA draft, won’t hire agents
HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (AP) — Marshall guard Jon Elmore and two of his teammates have declared for the NBA draft.
Marshall announced that Elmore, guard C.J. Burks and forward Ajdin Penava are entering the June 21 draft but will not hire agents. That means they have until June 11 to withdraw their names and return to Marshall for their senior seasons.
The 6-foot-3 Elmore led Marshall to its first NCAA Tournament berth since 1987. He set school records with 816 points and 244 assists this season as Marshall won the Conference USA tournament. Penava led the country with 134 blocked shots.
Elmore also declared for last year’s draft before withdrawing his name.
