PITTSBURGH (AP) - Pittsburgh junior Ashton Gibbs will declare for the NBA draft, but he will not hire an agent during the process.

Gibbs has until April 24 to formally apply and submit his NBA paperwork. As long as he doesn’t hire an agent, he would have until May 8 to withdraw his name without losing his eligibility with the Panthers.

Gibbs, a 6-foot-2, 190-pound guard from Scotch Plains, N.J., has led the Panthers in scoring the last two seasons.

Pitt, a No. 1 seed and the Big East regular-season champions, lost in the second of round of the NCAA tournament to Butler 71-70.

Gibbs averaged 16.8 points this season, a career high, while shooting 49 percent from 3-point range. He had 26 points in a 74-51 first-round win over N.C. Asheville, but finished with just 11 in the loss to the Bulldogs.
