After an impressive junior campaign, North Carolina forward Luke Maye will test the NBA draft waters.
Maye is entering the 2018 NBA Draft process but as of now will not hire an agent, according to a press release from the Tar Heels.
By electing to not hire an agent, Maye has the opportunity to return for his senior season.
Maye’s breakout season resulted in first-team All-ACC and third-team All-America honors. He posted 16.9 points and 10.1 rebounds per game.
Maye was selected as the ACC’s Most Improved Player after boosting his scoring average by 11.4 points per game from his sophomore to junior seasons.
“This is a great opportunity for Luke,” UNC coach Roy Williams said in the press release. “This is what the system is designed to do, which is provide players with an opportunity to work out with NBA teams and get feedback from those teams. Our staff will support Luke and will do whatever we can to help him throughout this process.”
As a sophomore, Maye won Most Outstanding Player at the 2017 NCAA South Regional en route to North Carolina capturing the 2017 national championship.
