Robert Franks to declare for draft but not hire agent”

Franks announced on Twitter on Monday that he has yet to sign an agent, but has intentions to do so.

Signing with an agent would prevent him from being able to return to school.

"I've grown a lot in my three years at WSU", Franks said in a WSU news release.

Washington State forward Robert Franks says he intends to declare for the National Basketball Association draft. Franks says his dream is to play at the next level and, "I'm ready to pursue my dreams". Players that sign an agent can not return to school the following season, even if the go undrafted. Franks was a breakout star in an otherwise down season for the Cougars.

After averaging only 6.3 points per game during his sophomore season, Franks was named the Pac-12 Most Improved Player as a junior. A strong outside shooter at 6-foot-8, Franks could intrigue National Basketball Association executives during the predraft process.

If Franks is selected to the National Basketball Association, he will be Head Coach Ernie Kent's first player from WSU to be drafted and the first Cougar since Klay Thompson in 2011.

Franks averaged 17.4 points, 6.6 rebounds and was a 40.5 percent 3-point shooter for the Cougars this season.
