Clemson forward James Mays made himself eligible for the NBA draft but did not hire an agent, leaving open the possibility of a return to the Tigers for his senior season. Mays, 6-foot-9, averaged 12.2 points and 6.4 rebounds last season. He missed the second half of his sophomore season because he was academically ineligible.

"I feel this is an opportunity for me to explore my options," Mays said Wednesday. "This will give me a chance to evaluate where I stand as a player." TRANSLATION: “I can’t wait to get the hell out of here.”

Clemson coach Oliver Purnell said he knew Mays was leaning toward the June 28 draft.

“I'll help him get as much information as possible," Purnell said. "Certainly, it should be something he should strongly consider if he's going to be a first-round selection." TRANSLATION: “I can’t wait to get him the hell out of here.”
