According to multiple outlets, including RealGM, Louisville’s Jordan Nwora has signed with agent David Mondress of BDA Sports Management.
Under the new rules governing the sport, Nwora signing with an agent doesn’t mean what it would have a year ago. Nwora can use Mondress to help him set up workouts with NBA teams in the weeks to come, but can still return to Louisville if he terminates his contract with the agent before the May 29 deadline.
Nwora is one of 66 NBA Draft prospects who received an invitation to the NBA Draft Combine, which starts next Wednesday at Chicago’s Quest Multiplex.

While Nwora signing with an agent doesn’t entail the same degree of finality (or any degree of finality) as it used to, it is another sign that the Cardinal is all in on trying to establish himself as a first round pick this year. If he receives feedback next week that being taken at the tail end of the first round (or even the beginning of the second round) is a legitimate possibility, my guess is that he has played his last college game. That remains a large “if” though.
