Perry Jones III To Declare For 2012 NBA Draft, According To Report

In a move that is not a surprise, Baylor sophomore forward Perry Jones III will declare for the 2012 NBA Draft, according to a report from CBS Sports' Jeff Goodman.

Baylor sophomore Perry Jones III will head to the NBA. According to sources close to the program, the talented 6-foot-10 Texas native has decided to leave school.

Many expected Jones to declare after his freshman season, especially after he was handed a six-game suspension for accepting improper benefits, but Jones instead elected to return to Baylor. He averaged 13.5 points and 7.6 rebounds per game in leading the Bears to the Elite 8, but failed to alleviate concerns about his inconsistency and reversion to contact inside. Nevertheless, due to his skills, size and upside, he is expected to be a lottery pick.

Goodman also reports that Baylor freshman forward Quincy Miller will make a decision on his future on Tuesday. The highly-acclaimed freshman averaged 10.6 points and 4.9 rebounds per game as he returned from a knee injury suffered in high school.
