RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - North Carolina State junior BeeJay Anya has declared for the NBA draft but isn’t hiring an agent.

Anya’s name appeared on the NBA’s list of early entrees released Tuesday night. Team spokesman Josh Rattray said Wednesday that Anya won’t hire an agent to allow him to return to school.

The 6-foot-9, 285-pound center averaged 4.7 points, 5.3 rebounds and 2.2 blocks. He is the Wolfpack’s career blocks leader and was the Atlantic Coast Conference’s sixth man of the year as a sophomore.

New draft rules make it easier for players to test the waters and still retain their college eligibility as long as they don’t hire an agent and withdraw by May 25. The rule allows them to work out for teams and participate in the scouting combine if invited.
