OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- Oklahoma State guard Marcus Smart has declared for the NBA draft.

Smart told The Daily Oklahoman he has hired an agent, making official what was already a foregone conclusion. The sophomore participated in Senior Night activities in Stillwater. He averaged 18 points, 5.9 rebounds and 4.8 assists per game this season.

Smart surprised some by returning to school after a strong freshman year. He got off to an excellent start this season, but slumped and began to lose his cool. On March 8, he shoved a Texas Tech fan and was suspended for three games. His Cowboys went through a seven-game losing streak, but his strong play late in the season pushed the Cowboys into the NCAA tournament, where they lost to Gonzaga in the round of 64.
