Gonzaga forward Johnathan Williams enters NBA Draft without an agent
Gonzaga Bulldogs power forward Johnathan Williams is ready to test the NBA waters.
After helping Gonzaga get to the NCAA Tournament championship Cheap Fan Jerseys game, Williams has submitted his papers for early entry into the 2017 NBA Draft, but has not hired an agent.
After talking with the GU coaches and my family, I’m going to test the NBA Draft process, Williams said. I will not be hiring an agent. It’s my dream to play in the NBA and not going with an agent allows me to see where I stand. I appreciate all of the support I continue to receive at Gonzaga University. I’m just following God’s plan and I’m thankful for the opportunity.
By not signing with an agent, Williams will retain his collegiate eligibility and have the option to return for his redshirt senior season at Gonzaga in 2017-18. The NCAA’s deadline for him to withdraw from the draft is May 24.
Williams averaged 10.2 points and 6.4 rebounds per game last season.
After losing Game 5 in Houston, the Clippers, at one point ahead by 19 in the second half of Game 6 at Staples Center, entered the fourth quarter up 92-79. What followed was one of the most furious and confounding comebacks in NBA playoff history. The Rockets outscored the Clippers 40-15 in the final frame behind offensive outbursts from Josh Smith (19 points, plus-11 for the game) and Corey Brewer (19 points, plus-32 for the game), while MVP candidate James Harden sat on the bench.
The Rockets hit everything. The Clippers missed open Cheap Flag Football Jerseys looks and played to run out the clock rather than score. Even Jordan’s attempt to save a loose ball landed in Brewer’s lap for an open 3-pointer. Los Angeles didn’t recover, falling in Game 7 and blowing its best opportunity to fight for the Western Conference crown.
