Per an article by B.J. Rains of the Idaho Press, Boise State forward James Webb III has hired an agent and will remain in the 2016 NBA Draft, which takes place this July.
Webb declared for the draft on March 27, but did not initially sign with an agent, keeping his NCAA eligibility in tact. He is believed to be the first Boise State basketball player to ever leave school early for the NBA, and is trying to be just the second Boise State player to be selected in the current two-round draft format. He has signed with Charles Briscoe of Briscoe Sports Management, according to a Boise State spokesman.
Webb averaged 15.8 points and 9.1 rebounds per game last season as a junior and was a first-team All-Mountain West selection. His draft projections vary, with Yahoo! Sports listing him as a “possible second-round pick” and DraftExpress.com having him go undrafted.
