John Collins
Wake Forest sophomore forward John Collins (208-F-97) announced Wednesday (Mar. 22) that he will declare for the NBA Draft, but will not hire an agent.

Underclassmen are permitted to declare for the NBA Draft in order to participate in workouts with teams and attend NBA pre-draft camps, including the NBA Combine in May. As long as a player does not hire an agent, he retains amateur eligibility and can return to school if he withdraws from the draft within 10 days following the conclusion of the NBA Combine.

'After a lot of thought, I have decided to declare for the NBA Draft, but not hire an agent,' said Collins. 'This allows me the opportunity to be evaluated by teams over the next few weeks and gather information from them. I want to make an informed decision about what is best for my future, whether that is turning pro at this time or returning to Wake Forest for my junior season."

Collins became the 15th All-American in Wake Forest history by being named to the second team by Basketball Times. He earned first-team All-ACC honors in 2016-17 while also being named the league's Most Improved Player.

The native of West Palm Beach, Fla., averaged 19.2 points and 9.8 rebounds per game during his sophomore season, posting 17 double-doubles while leading the Demon Deacons to their first NCAA appearance since 2010. His 20.3 scoring average in ACC play led the league. Collins led the league in field goal percentage in both conference games (63.9%) and overall (62.2%). His streak of 12 consecutive 20-point games was the longest in ACC play since NC State's T.J. Warren in 2014 and the longest by a Demon Deacon in over four decades. Collins led the ACC in 20-and-10 games with 10 overall and eight in ACC play.

Royce O'Neale was built to be the stopper the Jazz need in series vs. Thunder - 2 days ago
By Tony Jones INTERVIEW Oklahoma City Unknowingly, Royce O'Neale (198-SF-93, college: Baylor)<'s road to becoming an NBA defensive stopper began before he hit middle school. On Wednesday night, the man who was playing overseas last season will once again be given the large task of containing Oklahoma City star Paul George when the Jazz face the Thunder in Game 2 of a Western Conference first-round series. But, 16 years ago, O'Neale was an 8-year-old who had never played organized basket...   [read more]

Royce
O'Neale
After Rudy Gobert, the Jazz have another defensive stopper to utilize - 4 days ago
By: Cody Taylor With Game 1 against the Jazz nearing on Sunday, the Thunder will have their fair share of problems to deal with. Of course, one of the best stories of the 2017-18 season has been the emergence of rookie Donovan Mitchell. While he may not win Rookie of the Year, he has certainly earned the right to be in the conversation. He has helped fuel an unlikely turnaround with the Jazz this season that saw the team rise up to fifth in the Western Conference. As Thunder fans know,...   [read more]
