ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) – Michigan standout Charles Matthews is entering the NBA draft without hiring an agent, giving him the option to stay in school.
Matthews announced his decision on Friday.
He can start working out for NBA teams on Tuesday in the hopes of being picked to participate in the draft combine next month in Chicago. Matthews has until May 30 to stay in the draft or withdraw his name from consideration.
The 6-foot-6, 200-pound guard helped the Wolverines advance to the NCAA finals and had a career-high 31 points in a Sweet 16 win over Texas A&M. He started all 41 games and averaged 13 points, 5.5 rebounds and 2.4 assists in his first season playing at Michigan after transferring from Kentucky.
