Arizona’s Brandon Randolph enters name in NBA Draft
Arizona Wildcats wing Brandon Randolph will take advantage of the NCAA’s new NBA Draft rules.
The sophomore announced Friday on Instagram he was entering his name in the 2019 NBA Draft.
“I am taking this process very seriously and look forward to getting feedback to help me make the best decision for my family and me,” Randolph said in the post.
Randolph will have until May 29 to formally decide whether to stay in the draft or withdraw his name, a new wrinkle this cycle for undergraduate college players.
Randolph, a former four-star recruit, averaged 12.4 points per game on 38 percent shooting this past season.
The 6-foot-6 wing entered the season as the No. 42 player on ESPN’s big board for the 2019 NBA Draft.
The announcement comes a day after the deadline for players to request evaluation from the NBA Undergraduate Advisory Committee.
Randolph has until April 21 to formally enter himself as a candidate for the 2019 NBA Draft.
