Draft Express' Jonathan Givony tweeted out that Rashad Vaughn has signed with an agency.
UNLV freshman Rashad Vaughn has signed with agent Omar Wilkes of @OctagonBsktball— Jonathan Givony (@DraftExpress) March 30, 2015
This comes three days after Adrian Wojnarowski reported that a source said Vaughn has plans to enter the 2015 NBA Draft. And like he did following the Woj bomb, Vaughn's father told Taylor Bern of the Las Vegas Sun that they have not made a decision regarding Vaughn's future.
Response from Troy Vaughn, Rashad's dad, is same as Friday: "Not true at this time." Report said Vaughn hired agent https://t.co/V03Z5CnLDE— Taylor Bern (@TaylorBern) March 30, 2015
Vaughn was on his way to claiming Mountain West Freshman of the Year honors, as well as a spot on the first or second all-conference team before tearing a meniscus that sidelined him or the final nine games of UNLV's season.
Despite Vaughn and his father's insistence on the decision being incomplete, it appears the 6-foot-6 guard will be leaving UNLV. Signing with an agent would nullify his remaining eligibility at the college ranks.
The agency, Octagon Basketball, represents Steph Curry, David West, Rudy Gay and 16 more NBA players, according to their website.
If Vaughn is in fact undecided, he has until April 26 to make a decision, as that is the early entry eligibility deadline. The NBA Draft Combine is May 12-17 , and the draft will be held on June 25.
Taylor Bern is also reporting that Dantley Walker will transfer. Walker played in 10 games last season, mainly against lesser competition like San Jose State, Southern Utah and Saint Katherine.
