  • Joseph Jones (Jr, Texas A&M). Will not hire agent.

  • Aaron Bruce (Jr, Baylor), no agent
  • Jamont Gordon (So, Miss State), was in, but was going to pull out before the April 29 deadline.
  • You may be surprised by some of the names, some are ill-advised, but also please keep in mind that college juniors typically benefit from testing the waters without signing with an agent. Then they go back to school and work on their game, having collected feedback from a number of NBA people. Think of it as preparing for job interviews at the university's career center. Except the career center in this case is the NBA draft.

  • Game Over! The early entry deadline has passed! (4/30/2007).

    New Agents with draft impact
  • Mike Conley's dad. Multi-talented as he was the AAU basketball coach of Conley, Oden et al, and a star field and track athlete back in the day.

    They said they are returning for 2007-2008 - but nothing is final until the NBA early-entry deadline passes (April 29).
  • Brook Lopez, Stanford, 3/19/2007
  • Derrick Caracter, Louisville, HA!
  • Chase Budinger, Arizona
  • The Carolinians (Tywon Lawson, Tyler Hansbrough, Wayne Ellington)
  • Malik Hairston (Oregon)
  • Darren Collison (UCLA) (4/18), reaffirmed (4/24).
  • Joey Dorsey (Jr, Memphis). Presumably he was thinking of the NBDL draft, because he's clearly not ready for the NBA (mentally and offensively).
  • DJ White (Indiana).
  • Chris Lofton (TN)
  • Hasheem Thabeet (Fr, UConn), according to Calhoun
  • Luc Richard (UCLA). As if!
