Jeremy Lamb Leaving Connecticut For The NBA Draft

Connecticut sophomore wing Jeremy Lamb is officially leaving the school to enter the NBA Draft. The announcement came on the (artificial) NCAA deadline for a player to declare whether or not they intend to stay in school for the following season (players can still opt for the NBA Draft by the NBA deadline of April 29 without penalty). The announcement came from Connecticut sports information director Paul Chardis via Twitter.

Lamb averaged 37 minutes per game as a sophomore after also playing an instrumental role in the Huskies' national championship run as a freshman. This season, Lamb averaged 17 points and 5 rebounds per game. The Huskies finished 9th in the Big East and were eliminated from the NCAA Tournament in the first round by Iowa State. Lamb is projected as a late lottery pick to late first round pick by most NBA Draft projections.

Connecticut is still waiting for freshman Andre Drummond to make his decision to go to the NBA or not. Most analysts expect him to leave and make that announcement soon.
