Hawes to declare, without agent

Spencer Hawes said today what was expected — that he will declare for the draft but won’t hire an agent so he can return to college if he wants.
Hawes, however, said for now his focus is on preparing for the draft.
“My goal has been to go to the NBA growing up,” he said.
UW coach Lorenzo Romar said the decision was no surprise, that the Huskies new the minute Hawes signed that this could happen. “The rule was put in for this very reason so he can go out and see what the experts think,” Romar said.
Hawes said he will attend the pre-draft camp in Orlando on May 29 and then will be able to conduct individual workouts. The deadline to pull out is June 18.
Hawes said the situation he may find himself in is more important than simply his draft number in determining how he will make his ultimate decision.
We’ll have more on-line a little later.
