Pargo declares for 2008 NBA draft

SPOKANE, Wash. - As KHQ reported earlier today, Gonzaga point guard Jeremy Pargo will test the NBA waters.  Pargo plans to make himself eligible for June's NBA draft, but will not hire an agent, meaning he has until June 16th to decide if wants to return to Gonzaga for his senior season. 

Here is the official news release from Gonzaga University.

SPOKANE, Wash. (April 15, 2008 ) - Gonzaga University junior guard Jeremy Pargo has announced he will make himself to the June NBA Draft, but will not hire an agent to keep the door open to return to the Bulldogs for his senior season.
"After discussing my options with my coaches and my family, I have decided to declare for the NBA draft, but will not hire an agent. This is a great opportunity for me to play against future NBA players in front of NBA executives," Pargo said. "Going through the early entry process will be a great learning experience. I am looking forward to Orlando and the pre-draft workouts and then I will make the decision whether to return to Gonzaga and earn my degree or stay in the draft."
Gonzaga head coach Mark Few said he supports Pargo's decision.
"Jeremy has given his all to this program, and our coaching staff, players and basketball family are all in support of him exploring his options with the draft. I have full confidence in Jeremy that he will make an educated and thoughtful decision after going through the process."
Pargo was named the West Coast Conference Player of the Year this past season, the eighth straight season a Bulldog has been so honored. The Chicago native averaged 12.1 ppg overall, but it was the other facets of his game that often times made life rough for the opposition. He paced the conference in assists at 6.0/game overall and 6.50 in WCC action, he was 10th overall in steals with 1.38 and fourth in WCC games at 2.07 and posted a 1.84 assist/turnover ratio in all games and 2.28 in WCC contests.
If he were drafted this year Pargo would become the third player in Gonzaga history to leave early for the NBA Draft. Juniors Paul Rogers (second round, 54th overall pick by the Los Angeles Lakers) left in 1997 and Adam Morrison (first round, third overall pick by the Charlotte Bobcats) left in 2006.
Pargo can pull his name out of the draft up to 10 days prior to the draft and still retain his collegiate eligibility. This year's draft is slated for June 26.
