Omer Yurtseven Declares For Draft, Won't Hire Agent

Mar 15, 2017 1:09 AM

Omer Yurtseven told on Tuesday that he will declare for the draft but left open the possibility of returning to N.C. State next season.

Yurtseven, a 7-footer from Turkey, had a difficult freshman season. He missed the first nine games of the season after the NCAA reviewed his amateur eligibility. He had played the previous three seasons for a pro club in Turkey before committing to the Wolfpack last May.

Yurtseven was projected by some NBA draft sites as a first-round pick before the season started.
