Georgia sophomore forward Nicolas Claxton enters NBA draft
The sophomore announced his plans Saturday on Twitter and followed up hours later by adding, “To the people doubting me I love it.” Claxton has until May 30 to withdraw from the draft.
Claxton was a bright spot in coach Tom Crean’s first season, averaging 13 points, 8.6 rebounds and 1.8 blocks. He shot 46% from the floor but only 28% from 3-point range. He weighs 220 pounds and may need to add bulk to compete near the basket in the NBA.
