Kansas’ Vick joins Newman in planning to enter NBA draft
LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) Kansas junior guard Lagerald Vick plans to skip his senior season and enter the NBA draft.
Vick averaged 12.1 points and 4.8 rebounds this season while earning All-Big 12 honorable mention honors. His mother, La La Vick, told The Kansas City Star that her son planned to hire an agent.
Vick’s decision, announced Friday in a news release, made him the second Jayhawk to announce for the NBA draft this week. Sophomore Malik Newman announced Wednesday that he would enter the draft and hire an agent.
Vick was inconsistent for much of the season but averaged 13.5 points in Kansas’ first four NCAA Tournament games. Coach Bill Self said it was time for Vick to move on and explore his professional options.
