Landry Shamet answers questions from the media during the press conference, on March 15, 2018, in San Diego.

Two weeks ago, sophomore guard Landry Shamet announced he will be foregoing his junior and senior seasons at Wichita State by declaring for the NBA Draft with intentions of signing with an agent.

Shamet told The Wichita Eagle’s Taylor Eldridge he will be signing with an agent later today and he will be represented by Catalyst Sports.
