Gordon Likely Staying in the Draft

May 29th, 2008

According to the Jackson Clarion-Ledger, Mississippi State junior guard Jamont Gordon is likely keeping his name in the NBA Draft and will not return to the Bulldogs for his senior season. "I've got...a lot of teams telling me I can probably slide into the first round and my stock has been rising," Gordon said. As a result, his trainer, Jerry Meyer, said that there is almost no chance he will come back to Starkville. "He's almost 100 percent set on staying in the draft," Meyer said. Gordon was one of the most productive all-around players in the country last season, averaging 17.2 points, 6.6 rebounds and 4.9 assists per game.
