ASU sophomore star James Harden has decided to enter the NBA draft, several sources reported on Tuesday.

Harden is expected to make the official announcement at a press conference on Wednesday.

This season, the 2009 Pac-10 Player of the Year, who most have expected would forgo his final two years of college, became the first Sun Devil to be named a first-team AP All-American.

Harden averaged 20.1 points, 5.6 rebounds and 4.2 assists per game this season, and helped lead ASU to back-to-back 20-win seasons for the first time since 1981.
