STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) _ The name of Oklahoma State junior JamesOn Curry was not on the initial list of college players who have declared for the NBA draft. NBA officials say the problem was misplaced paperwork and Curry's name is now on the list.

Curry sent the necessary paperwork to the NBA last week and director of basketball communications Mark Broussard says the omission was temporary and due to a clerical error.

Curry has said he isn't hiring an agent to keep his college eligibility alive and he says he'll only stay in the draft if he's advised he'll be a first-round pick.
