Wright previously declared for draft, now has agent

5/5/2005 - Indiana Hoosiers

HOUSTON -- Indiana guard Bracey Wright signed with a sports
agent Wednesday, effectively ending his college career, according
to a broadcast report.

Wright had announced last month that he would forgo his senior
year of eligibility and declare for the NBA draft. But since he
didn't initially sign with an agent, Wright preserved the chance to
play another season for the Hoosiers.

Houston television station KRIV reported that Wright signed with
Bob McClaren of McClaren Sports. Wright has been working out in
Houston six days a week to prepare for the draft.

"It was a tough decision," Wright told the station. "I went
back and forth with it a lot. There were some nights where I wasn't
too sure about things; other nights I was. In the end I knew this
was the right decision to make for myself."

The 6-foot-3 junior led the Big Ten in scoring, averaging 18.3
points as the Hoosiers finished 15-14 and missed the NCAA
tournament for a second straight year. He ends his career 15th on
Indiana's all-time scoring list with 1,498 points.
