Sources: Memphis' Taggart to test draft waters
Memphis big man Shawn Taggart is expected to declare for the NBA Draft, but will not hire an agent.
According to sources close to the situation, the 6-foot-10 junior — who transferred to Memphis from Iowa State after his freshman season — will send in the paperwork to the NBA to test the waters.
Taggart averaged 10.4 points and 7.6 rebounds per game this season as Memphis advanced to the Sweet 16.
Taggart is not expected to be a first-round pick, according to multiple NBA executives.
