LSU guard Marlon Taylor becomes LSU's sixth underclassmen to declare for the NBA Draft as his name is on the league's early entry list, according to Amie Just with

Taylor, a junior from Mount Vernon, NY, started in 24 games for LSU last season and averaged 6.7 points and 3.6 rebounds per game.

Five players had previously announced for the draft: Naz Reid, Tremont Waters, Skylar Mays, Emmitt Williams and Javonte Smart.

The sixth player, Marlon Taylor, had not made any social media posts referring to potentially leaving LSU, but his name was included in the early entry list.

That means LSU’s top seven scorers from last season are either out of eligibility (Kavell Bigby-Williams) or have entered the NBA Draft.

Chill fellas. Most mock drafts only have 1 guy being drafted (naz reid). I've seen waters in 1 draft and that was late 2nd rd. I think 5 of the 6 will be back. Geaux tigers!

Only ones with the option of returning are the ones that haven't inked with an agent... as I understand the process.

Nope, you can have an agent. They changed that. You just can’t get paid.

Southerninsanity, they changed the rules. College players are allowed representation as soon as their seasons end if they request an evaluation from the NBA Undergraduate Advisory Committee. Those agents will have the freedom to pay for meals and transportation for both players and their families, as long as those expenses are related to the agent selection process, and meals, transportation and lodging for meetings with an agent or pro team. All player-agent relationships, however, must be in writing, disclosed to the NCAA and ended when the player comes back to school. In the past, if a college basketball player declared for the draft, they had until 10 days after the draft combine to return to school. Now, players can go through the draft and have the ability to return to school if they go undrafted, as long as they inform the school’s athletic director by 5 p.m. the Monday after the draft. as per:LINK
