Armon Johnson declares for the NBA draft

Apr 9, 2010, 5:42 PM EDT

According to the Associated Press, Nevada guard Armon Johnson will skip his senior season and enter the NBA draft. He plans to hire an agent, which would put an end to his college eligibility. 

Most draft experts expected Johnson to stay in college for another season. Draft Express ranks Johnson 55th in their list of the top 100 prospects, which would make Johnson a late second-round pick. Johnson ranked 9th in the NCAA in assists per game and shot 54.4% on two-pointers. However, he has some issues with his shot selection from the perimeter. Johnson took two three-pointers a game while making less than a quarter of his attempts from distance. Turnovers are also a problem for Johnson, who gave the ball away 3.4 times per game last season. Johnson has good physical tools for a point guard, another year at Nevada would likely have benefited his draft stock.
