Sloan is in the middle of making a tour of Texas' NBA teams. He was in San Antonio on Sunday and will work out for the Rockets later this week.
He has not hired an agent, meaning the 6-3 guard could still withdraw from the draft and return to A&M for his senior season. It will depend on what kind of feel he gets from NBA teams about his draft potential.
Clearly, he is not Jerry Sloan's illegitimate child.
He suspiciously looks like a Mexican version of Karl Malone though
Being an A&M grad I like Sloan a lot. But unfortunately for him I think he's one of those tweener guards who doesn't have the size to be a SG or the ballhandling/passing skills to be a PG. Sloan is a good all around player, but tweeners need to have at least one thing that they can excel at at the NBA level. Sloan is good at everything, great at nothing. Sloan's basketball future is probably overseas. I would absolutely love for him to prove me wrong though.

MIAMI (AP) — Texas forward Damion James and Kentucky center Patrick Patterson were among six players working out Tuesday for the Miami Heat, who have four picks in the NBA draft later this month.
James averaged 18 points and 10.3 rebounds as a senior for the Longhorns. Patterson averaged 14.3 points and 7.4 rebounds as a junior for the Wildcats. Both are projected as possible first-round picks, as is Nevada's Luke Babbitt, another player Miami had in for evaluation Tuesday.
The Heat also had Vanderbilt's Jermaine Beal, Texas A&M's Donald Sloan and Miami's Dwayne Collins in for workouts.
Miami has the 18th pick, then three second-round selections in the June 24 draft.

The Dallas Mavericks began a six-day process on Tuesday of bringing in draft prospcts for workouts. The Mavs have six players scheduled today, including Texas A&M guard Donald Sloan.
Others expected to workout today are: Duke sharpshooter Jon Scheyer, 6-foot-10 power forward Mac Koshwal of DePaul, 7-footer Chas McFarland of Wake Forest, 6-10 power forward Michael Washington of Arkansas and 6-9 power forward Mouhammed Faye, who averaged 10.7 points and 5.3 rebounds last season for SMU.
Sloan, a 6-3, 205-pound combo guard from Seagoville, averaged a team-high 17.8 points and shot 36.4 percent from beyond the 3-point arc. He led the Aggies to four consecutive NCAA tournaments. He is not projected to be drafted, but will likely get a shot to play on an NBA summer league team in July.
