Dwayne Bacon submits name for NBA Draft


Florida State Seminoles freshman shooting guard Dwayne Bacon has submitted his name for the NBA Draft, according to an AP report. Per said report, Bacon will not hire an agent.

Bacon also announced his decision via a written statement posted to Twitter.


The former five-star talent and McDonald’s All-American from central Florida had a fine freshman season in Tallahassee, posting 15.8 points per game while shooting 45 percent from the field as the Seminoles went 20-14 (8-10 ACC).

By simply submitting his name for the draft as opposed to formally declaring for it, Bacon is taking advantage of a new policy that allows college prospects to participate in the various processes leading up to the draft, namely team workouts and the NBA Scouting Combine in May, but also allows them to withdraw their names from consideration up to 10 days after the combine and thus return to school. To give a better idea, the deadline used to be in April, well before the combine.

And NBADraft.net currently projects Dwayne Bacon as going 19th overall to the Indiana Pacers, though that could change depending on how things shape up over the next couple of months.
