Syracuse guard Tyus Battle has declared for the NBA Draft but will not hire an agent. The news was first reported by ESPN.
The latest ESPN mock draft has Battle pegged as a first-round draft choice, going 29th to Brooklyn, which has Toronto’s pick.
“We fully support him throughout this process,” the team’s official account tweeted.
Battle posted to Instagram that he flew home to New Jersey this weekend. His family did not immediately respond to a request seeking comment Friday afternoon.
