News that is kind of news for Indiana fans today. Troy Williams will declare for the NBA Draft, but not yet hire an agent per Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports.
Indiana junior forward Troy Williams will enter the 2016 NBA draft without immediately hiring an agent, league sources tell @TheVertical.— Adrian Wojnarowski (@WojVerticalNBA) April 11, 2016
Of course, he can still return to school. With new rules this season, prospects can remain in the Draft until after the NBA Combine -- allowing them to make a better-informed decision about their NBA future before fully choosing to forego their remaining college eligibility.
And that's exactly what Williams will do.

Wojnarowski says in his report that the majority of NBA execs feel Williams is currently a second-round pick.
And a reminder: slandering kids who have the opportunity to make a ton of money for their family instead of fulfill the dreams of adult men whilst playing into the farcical notion that is amateurism is a great way to look like an asshole online. Don't do it.
Best of luck to Troy as he enters the process.
