Andrew Wiggins to enter NBA Draft

Written by 

Andrew Wiggins will announce that he is declaring for the NBA Draft on Monday, according to sources. Wiggins and Kansas men's basketball Head Coach Bill Self have a press conference slated for 3 p.m. Monday, when they will likely make the announcement. 

The freshman averaged 17.1 points and 5.9 rebounds per game at KU this year. He is currently projected by many as the No. 1 overall pick in the upcoming draft, and will likely go no lower than No. 2 overall.

Wiggins is coming off a Big 12 Freshman of the Year selection and a first-team all-conference spot. He has shown flashed of brilliancy, scoring 20-plus points in 11 games. However, Wiggins also played in six games where he scored in single digits. 

The six-foot-eight wing scored 41 points against West Virginia back on March 8. He shot 9 of 17 in that game and grabbed eight rebounds.

Kansas' season ended last week, when they were upset in their second game of the tournament by Stanford. Wiggins only scored four points on 1-of-6 shooting in the loss.
