All-American sophomore and projected lottery pick Ja Morant is leaving Murray State to enter the 2019 NBA Draft, The Athletic reported Wednesday.
Morant averaged 24.5 points and led the nation with 10.0 assists per game this season, highlighted by a triple-double against Marquette in a first-round win in the NCAA Tournament.
According to The Athletic’s Shams Charania, the 6-foot-3 point guard will declare for the draft during a press conference on Wednesday.
Morant, who also averaged 5.7 rebounds and 1.8 steals in 2018-19, has been projected to go as high as No. 2 in the draft behind Duke freshman forward Zion Williamson.
