Mississippi State guard Jamont Gordon will remain eligible to be drafted in next week’s NBA Draft.

The junior did not remove his name before Monday’s withdrawal deadline for early entrants. The draft is June 26.

Gordon could still return to school if he goes undrafted and does not hire an agent. The 6-foot-4 Nashville native averaged 17.2 points, 6.6 rebounds and 4.9 assists per game last year for MSU, which went 23-11 and lost in the second round of the NCAA Tournament.
