Syracuse point guard Jonny Flynn will sign with an agent, a newspaper reported Monday.
Flynn, a 6-foot sophomore, said last week that he planned to enter his name in the NBA draft but had not yet hired an agent. However, The Post-Standard in Syracuse reported Flynn is expected to sign with Leon Rose, the agent for NBA star LeBron James.
Attempts to reach Flynn, his family and Syracuse coach Jim Boeheim were unsuccessful.
Flynn averaged 17.4 points and 6.7 assists per game as a sophomore. He set a school record by playing 1,418 minutes in the just-concluded season.
If he does not sign with an agent, Flynn would retain the ability to remove his name from the draft by June 15.

He's a real Tempo changer, and a great finisher. He's a guy whose success will have a lot to do with situation. He's not unlike TJ Ford, but should be a lot more durable, and he's already close as a shooter. There's some Ray Felton in there too, but Flynn is a much better finisher, which I think hurts Felton at this level.
Thanks. I know Andre Buck. He graduated with my dad in high school and they were friends and I got to work at his basketball camp for 2 summers. He also represents guys like Aaron Brooks, Jason Thompson, and Renaldo Balkman. Mark Tyndale signed with him last year so that's how he got Dionte. He's from south Jersey so he's got the Philly connection.
