Washington guard Tony Wroten Jr., the Pac-12 Freshman of the Year, announced he will enter the NBA draft.
His decision comes 48 hours after sophomore teammate Terrence Ross — who led the Huskies with a 16.4 scoring average – made the same call about his future.
Wroten averaged 16.0 points this season and set an assortment of UW freshman records, including most assists and steals.

Also, Weber State junior point guard Damian Lillard, the former Oakland HS star who was second in the nation in scoring, declared he will enter the draft. A two-time Big Sky Player of the Year, Lillard averaged 24.5 points this season and finished his career as Weber’s No. 2 all-time scorer with 1,934 points.
Lillard is projected to be picked as high as the top-10 in the NBA draft. Draftexpress.com projects him to go at No. 14.
Meanwhile, there were reports last week that Oregon State junior guard Jared Cunningham, formerly of San Leandro HS, will leave school for the NBA. But neither Cunningham nor OSU has confirmed the move.
