(INDIANAPOLIS, IN) - Butler University forward Gordon Hayward is expected to announce his decision to stay in the NBA Draft at a news conference on Friday.
The Indianapolis Star, citing people familiar with the situation, reports that the sophomore will not withdraw his name from consideration before Saturday's deadline.
The sophomore from Brownsburg High School is projected to go between the tenth and 20th picks in the first round of the June 24th draft, which would mean a guaranteed contract.
Hayward's stock increased as he led the Bulldogs to last month's championship game of the NCAA Tournament where Butler fell to Duke 61-59.
