Mississippi State’s Reggie Perry declares for NBA Draft
By ADAM ZAGORIAReggie Perry, the 6-foot-10 sophomore from Mississippi State, announced Sunday via a video that he intends to declare for the NBA Draft.
Perry averaged 17.4 points and 10.1 rebounds this past season. Last season Perry earned All-SEC freshman honors and averaged 9.7 points and 7.2 rebounds a game.
He tested the NBA Draft waters a year ago but returned to campus. He is expected to sign with an agent and remain in the draft this time.
