Baylor G LJ Cryer entering name in NBA draft
Baylor junior guard LJ Cryer announced Wednesday that he is declaring for the NBA draft.
Cryer said he will retain his college eligibility.
“While it has been a dream to play college basketball at the highest level, I want to explore my options at the professional level as well,” Cryer said in his announcement on Twitter. “That said, I have decided to declare for the NBA Draft while maintaining my eligibility.”
Cryer averaged 15.0 points, 2.1 rebounds, and 2.0 assists in 31 games this season, his first as a starter. He tied for the team lead with 80 3-pointers.
Cryer’s announcement comes one day after Baylor guard Keyonte George declared for the draft. The Big 12 Freshman of the Year is projected as a lottery pick and is highly unlikely to return to the Bears.
