OFFICIAL: Angel Delgado to engage in NBA Draft process without agent

Connect with

In a follow-up to last week’s report that Angel Delgado will test the NBA Draft waters along with Khadeen Carrington, the Seton Hall forward has made it official.

Since the original report indicated that Angel will not hire an agent, nothing much has changed here since an agent binds a college player to the process, immediately ending their amateur status.

Flying under the radar of all mock drafts, Delgado’s decision is a no-brainer in which he will attempt to snare — like offensive rebounds — professional advice and perhaps a few workouts with NBA franchises over the next two months.

May 14th marks the end of the NBA Draft Combine, which means Delgado will officially have until May 24th to withdraw his name from the Draft in order to retain his final year of eligibility. 

If he stays — which is the more likely outcome — it will be interesting to see at what point he does withdraw his name and whether or not an invite to the Combine is forthcoming for the All-American honorable mention.

    Not surprised by this. I think Angel will be back. I’m not concerned.

  • Will be interesting to see what workouts Angel can get and if he will be invited to the Combine. If he’s not invited, that almost surely ends the NBA route.

    I watched TD discuss his plans yet again today… He said he is hoping to decide in April, but will push it as long as needed based on who stays & leaves at the prospective schools. He also reiterated that he is going to School & Not overseas. As always, said nice things about everyone including SHU and his visit during BET. Delgado staying is a must for us to have any shot… Hope he finds out what he needs & comes back. Does the fact that he is testing the NBA waters take the overseas thing off the table?

      Im looking at it like when Hazell tested the NBA waters after his junior year. Overseas play will always be there.

      Also, I think Trevon Duval would want to play for SHU with a legit, experienced big man inside like Angel. No Angel, no Duval. Trevon has to sign by May 16th I believe.

    Am I crazy or did they not change the rule last year and allow these guys to hire an agent and keep amateur status as long as they cut ties with the agent if they returned to school?
