Report: Indiana G James Blackmon Hiring Agent, Staying In NBA Draft

Another Indiana player is reportedly staying in the NBA Draft.

Indiana guard James Blackmon will hire an agent and remain in the NBA Draft, according to FanRag Sports' Jon Rothstein.

Blackmon joins big man Thomas Bryant and hyper-athletic wing OG Anunoby as early entrants from IU. Guard Robert Johnson is expected to make his draft decision soon.

The 6-foot-4 Blackmon scored 1,235 points in three seasons in Bloomington, averaging 17.0 points per contest in 2016-17. He also added 4.8 rebounds and 1.9 assists per game, and shot 91-for-215 (42 percent) from three-point range.

Yesterday, Blackmon tweeted that he was participating in graduation ceremonies at IU.

New Indiana head coach Archie Miller has his work cut out for him in restocking the roster. If Johnson goes pro, the Hoosiers will have to replace their top four scorers from 2016-17.

Indiana currently has three players, including two four-star prospects, signed for next season.
