Providence guard Kris Dunn declares for NBA Draft

The worst kept secret in college basketball is now officially out.

Providence Friars guard Kris Dunn will forgo his senior season and enter the NBA Draft, according to a report from CBS Sports.

This is something that was expected all season, as it was a surprise that Dunn even came back for his junior season. Dunn is a redshirt junior, so he has actually been at Providence long enough to get his degree, which he will do in a couple months.

Dunn has won (at least a share) of the last two Big East Player of the Year awards, and was in the running for numerous national awards this season.

DraftExpress currently has the New London, Connecticut native as the fifth pick in the the 2016 NBA Draft, which is the highest of any upperclassman.

Dunn finished this season averaging 16.4 points, 5.3 rebounds, and 6.4 assists per game.
