Michigan swingman Nik Stauskas is expected to go pro, but he is not ready to announce his decision just yet.

Thursday morning, a report from Hoops Hype Canada stated that Stauskas has already chosen his agent and would be entering the NBA draft.

But Stauskas took to Twitter to deny HHC and subsequent reports.

After a breakout sophomore season in which Stauskas averaged 17.5 points and helped lead Michigan to the Big Ten regular-season title, his stock has risen to the point where he is being considered in the late lottery. As a result, most expect him to depart Ann Arbor and head to the draft.

That's still the most likely scenario, but it's apparently not a done deal just yet.
