Duke's Elton Brand has decided to skip his final two years of eligibility and will enter this year's NBA draft, CNN-Sports Illustrated reported Thursday.
Without citing any sources, CNN-SI said an official announcement will be made next week.
Duke sports information director Mike Cragg told The Associated Press that as far as he knows, Brand still hasn't made up his mind.
He also said that no announcement has been scheduled for next week.
The sophomore center has been honored this year by the AP, the Los Angeles Athletic Club, the Atlanta Tipoff Club, the United States Basketball Writers Assn., and the Atlantic Coast Conference.
Brand averaged 17.8 points and 9.8 rebounds for the Blue Devils, who finished 37-2, including a perfect record in Atlantic Coast Conference play. Duke lost to Connecticut, 77-74, in the NCAA championship game.
