Tony Snell Announces His Eligibility for 2013 NBA Draft

University of New Mexico guard Tony Snell announced Tuesday that he will make himself eligible for the NBA draft.

Snell said that he will not hire an agent, which will give the junior forward the opportunity to return to school before the April 16th deadline should he find his draft prospects less than adequate.
 
“Tony has decided to test the interest level of the NBA,” head coach Steve Alford told the Albuquerque Journal. “We are helping him to gather that information. He has until April 16 to make his decision.”
 
Losing Snell to the NBA would be a huge blow to a New Mexico program that looked poised to return all five starters from the 2012-2013 team. 
 
Snell averaged 12.5 points per game last season while displaying improved ball handling skills and an excellent outside shot that would make him a well sought-after NBA prospect.
