Nevada sophomore forward Cameron Oliver of Grant High School reportedly will enter the NBA draft but he has yet to hire an agent, according to CBS Sports college basketball insider Jon Rothstein.
But is this a reprise of a year ago, when Oliver tested draft interest without hiring an agent, appeared at the draft combine in Chicago, but returned to college? Or is he going to make the big leap? Oliver appeared to address the report on his Twitter in less than an hour, saying he hasn’t yet stated his plans.
Oliver averaged 16.0 points, 8.7 rebounds and 2.6 blocks per game this season, a 2.6-point increase in his scoring average but otherwise similar numbers to his freshman year. He helped the Wolf Pack (28-7) win the Mountain West Conference regular-season and tournament championships.
He led Nevada with 22 points in its first-round loss in the NCAA Tournament to Iowa State 84-73.
Until he hires an agent, he remains eligible to return to the Wolf Pack for his junior season.
Nevada fans are showing him support on Twitter, and some are doing their best to lure him back for another year.
