PROVO, Utah - Brigham Young guard Lee Cummard is entering the NBA draft, but will keep his options open by not hiring an agent.
Cummard, a 6-foot-7 junior from Mesa High, said Friday that he wants to see what kind of interest teams have in him between now and the June 26 draft. He has until June 16 to remove his name from consideration and still be able to return for his senior season.
Cummard, the Tribune’s East Valley player of the year in 2003-04, was an AP All-America honorable mention selection this year as a junior when he led BYU in scoring at almost 16 points per game and shot 57 percent from the field. He also was second on the team in rebounds, assists and steals as the Cougars went 27-8.
BYU center Trent Plaisted also has put his name in for the draft but has not hired an agent.
