Ben Simmons is declaring for NBA Draft, hiring an agent
To the shock of no one, LSU freshman Ben Simmons is leaving college for the NBA.
ESPN reported the news Monday morning, with the 6-foot-10 phenom telling the network he planned to hire an agent and go pro on Sunday night.
His one season in college was a mess, but he's still expected to be the first or second name off the board.
The Australian phenom averaged 19.2 points, 11.8 rebounds and 4.8 assists, but his Tigers finished 19-14 overall and missed the NCAA Tourney. The team opted out of playing in the NIT after getting routed in the season finale.
