Will Barton to declare for draft
Memphis sophomore guard Will Barton will declare for the NBA draft and hire an agent, a source with direct knowledge told ESPN.com Thursday.
Barton and Memphis coach Josh Pastner met earlier Thursday.
Barton led the Tigers with 18 points a game and eight rebounds.
Pastner was expecting Barton to declare once the season ended, so this doesn't come as a shock.
The NCAA's deadline to declare is April 10. But the NBA early-entry deadline is April 29.
