Cal’s Anderson declares for draft without agent

Another big-name Pac-10 player may take the early NBA plunge as Cal sophomore forward Ryan Anderson said announced Thursday that he has made himself eligible for the 2008 NBA Draft. He does not plan to sign with an agent, leaving him the option of returning to the Golden Bear program for his junior season, according to a release from the school.
Anderson averaged 21.1 points per game and 9.9 rebounds for Cal in 2007-08.
“I am excited to have the chance to see where I stand in the eyes of NBA scouts,” Anderson said in a statement. “This is a great opportunity for me to get out there and get feedback on my game and see what I need to work on to improve myself as a player. I am still attending classes, so this will not affect my standing at Cal; I will use the information I gain from this experience to make a more educated decision on my basketball future”
Other Pac-10 players who have publicly declared their future plans include Stanford’s Robin and Brook Lopez, each turning pro; and Arizona State’s James Harden and Jeff Pendergraph, each staying.
A number of other players remain publicly uncertain, such as Arizona’s Jerryd Bayless (likely turning pro) and Chase Budinger (seems 50-50) and USC’s Davon Jefferson (latest report said leaning to pro) and Taj Gibson (seems 50-50). USC’s O.J. Mayo is also expected to turn pro but hasn’t said anything yet.
None of the UCLA guys considering it will obviously say anything until after their season is concluded.
