Report: Providence guard Kris Dunn will enter NBA Draft

Providence point guard Kris Dunn will forego his senior season and declare for the 2016 NBA Draft, according to Jon Rothstein of CBS Sports.

Dunn, a two-time Big East player of the year, is projected to be a top five pick in many experts' mock drafts.

The 6-foot-4 junior averaged 16.4 points, 6.2 assists and 5.3 rebounds this past season.

Dunn helped lead the Friars to a 24-11 record (10-8 in the Big East) and a win over USC in the first round of the NCAA Tournament this year. Providence was knocked out of the tourney in the second round by top-seeded North Carolina.
