Stanford junior guard Jeremy Green will remain in the NBA Draft, head coach Johnny Dawkins announced in a statement Sunday.

"We wish him the best of luck in his pursuit of a professional career," Dawkins said.

Green declared for the draft on April 28, but did not hire an agent. He had until Sunday's deadline to remove his name from the draft and come back for one more year on The Farm.

As a junior, Green was the Pac-10's fifth-leading scorer with 16.7 points per game. The two-time Pac-10 selection is Stanford's second-leading three-point field goal shooter, with 228. Dion Cross (1992-96) holds the record with 241.

Green holds the Cardinal record for most three-pointers made (93) in a single-season, which was set during his sophomore year.

In his 97 games as a Cardinal, 62 as a starter, Green averaged 13 points and 3 rebounds per game, shooting 41.5 percent from the field and 41.3 from three-point range.

"Jeremy has had an impact on our program and I am proud of everything he has accomplished during his time at Stanford," Dawkins said.
