Felton To Hold Press Conference This Week About Draft Status

Posted April 18, 2005

— UNC Junior Raymond Felton will call a press conference later this week to make an announcement about whether he will enter the NBA draft.

Felton said on Friday during an interview with WRAL-TV that he would call a press conference this week.

"... I definitely think so around Tuesday or Wednesday," Felton said when asked when he would make an announcement about his decision.

According to WRAL-TV sportscaster Jeff Gravley, who spoke to a well-placed source, Felton has decided to forgo his senior year and go pro.

Felton said last Tuesday at a UNC awards ceremony that he had made a decision about his senior year, but would not say more than that.

Felton, who was awarded co-player-of-the-year honors with Sean May, would be the second UNC player to go pro early.

Rashad McCants announced last week that he would be leaving before his senior year.
