EWU's Stuckey signs with agent for NBA draft

Rodney Stuckey, the former Kentwood High standout guard who had a prolific two seasons at Eastern Washington, has signed a contract with Goodwin Sports Management in Seattle and will thus keep his name in the June NBA draft.

"It's done," said Mike Burns, the EWU coach. "It's good news for the kid, and a great group to represent him."

The 6-foot-4 Stuckey averaged 24.4 points over two years at EWU, after leading Kentwood to the state 4A championship in 2004. His shooting percentages decreased last season, but his assist-to-turnover ratio improved markedly.

Burns said Stuckey had been leaning toward staying at EWU "right up until we got the information from the NBA (draft) advisory committee."

Burns said NBA personnel have consistently projected Stuckey as a combination guard going from Nos. 20-30 in the draft. Said Burns, "It's an opportunity that doesn't happen very often. I think he's made the best choice for him and his family."
