Washington’s Tony Wroten Jr. Declares for NBA Draft

Washington freshman guard Tony Wroten Jr. today announced he will forgo his sophomore season and instead enter the NBA Draft. Via The Herald:  “Wroten made the announcement through the Huskies’ athletic department on Tuesday morning. ‘I have been talking with my friends and family and I just felt like this was the right time,’ Wroten said in a statement released through the school. ‘I love the University of Washington, but I just feel that it’s best for me to make the jump.’ Wroten added that he made the announcement Tuesday to coincide with his mother’s birthday. The 6-foot-5 point guard was UW’s leading scorer during the regular season but eventually finished second on the team, at 16.0 points per game. Leading scorer Terrence Ross (16.4 points per game) announced Sunday that he would leave after his sophomore season to join the NBA. Both players are projected as mid- to late-first-round draft picks.”
