Three members of the UConn men’s basketball team, all with college eligibility remaining, have decided to take advantage of a new NBA Draft rule that allows players who do not hire an agent to work out for NBA teams and receive feedback from those teams before deciding whether to keep their names in the draft or return to college with no penalty.
Sophomore Daniel Hamilton (Los Angeles, Calif.), junior Amida Brimah (Accra, Ghana) and redshirt junior Rodney Purvis (Raleigh, N.C.) have announced their intention to do so.

Duke Blue Devils guard RJ Barrett, widely projected as a lottery pick, has made the decision to leave after his freshman season to enter the NBA draft, he announced Wednesday on social media.
“It was amazing to play for Coach K, play for the brotherhood,” Barrett said in a video posted to Twitter and Instagram. “It was a dream of mine to play at Duke ever since I was a young kid. It’s also a dream of mine to play in the NBA and have great success there. …
“I’m looking forward to coming back and supporting the Blue Devils any way I can. Just wanted to thank you for everything.”
