Washington State junior forward DeAngelo Casto has decided to forgo his senior season and will declare for the NBA draft.
He told the Spokesman-Review he left WSU in order to support his young son.

"There are a lot of reasons, but mainly for paper value," Casto said. "My kid, my son, I want to support him. I have to be able to support him, take care of him, provide for him.

"It didn't look like I would be able to maintain financially if I stayed."

Casto isn't projected as a NBA draft prospect and is expected to pursue a professional playing career overseas.

"We appreciate everything DeAngelo has given to the Washington State men's basketball program," WSU coach Ken Bone said in a statement released by the school. "His effort on the court was always outstanding and it led to a very good season where he earned All-Pac-10 honors. Now that he's moving on to pursue a professional career in basketball, we wish him nothing but the best."
