ANN ARBOR, Mich. — Michigan star guard Trey Burke will enter the NBA Draft, according to a source close to the team.
The sophomore — who swept the major player of the year awards this season — will officially announce his basketball future in a news conference Sunday afternoon, Michigan announced on the school’s basketball Twitter feed:
Trey Burke will announce his decision to either return to school or depart for the NBA tomorrow afternoon.
Burke, the consensus national player of the year, is projected as a lottery pick in June’s NBA Draft. Listed at 6 feet, he considered leaving Michigan for the NBA after his freshman year, but he decided to come back “and try to play for a national championship.”
After averaging 18.6 points and 6.7 assists per game and leading Michigan to the NCAA title game this month, he had been widely expected to give up his final two years of eligibility and enter the draft.
