Gonzaga sophomore forward Austin Daye will submit his name for the NBA draft, but doesn't plan on hiring an agent, The Spokesman-Review has learned.
Daye is expected to make the announcement official later today.
By not hiring an agent, the 6-foot-11 Daye keeps open the option of returning to Gonzaga for his junior season. Jeremy Pargo declared himself eligible for the draft last April and went through the pre-draft process before electing to return to Gonzaga for his senior season.
Daye averaged 12.7 points and a team-leading 6.8 rebounds. He made 47.7 percent of his shots, 42.9 percent on 3-pointers, and blocked a GU single-season record 70 shots.
UPDATE: Daye made his decision official in a GU release Wednesday afternoon. I'm working on an article for Thursday's S-R and will post it around 5 p.m.
