One of Tennessee’s most integral players announced his intentions to declare for the 2019 NBA Draft Wednesday.
Tennessee Vols junior point guard Jordan Bone posted a video on Twitter Wednesday to announce he is declaring for the 2019 NBA Draft.
The 6’3″ guard from Nashville averaged 13.5 points, 5.8 assists and 3.2 rebounds per game on 46.5 percent shooting during the 2018-19 season that saw the Vols make their first appearance in the NCAA Tournament Sweet Sixteen since 2014.
He was named to the AP 2019 ALL-SEC Second Team and was one of the ten finalists for the Bob Cousy Award, given to the nation’s best point guard.
“I’m now blessed to have the opportunity to enter the 2019 NBA Draft, showcase my abilities for NBA personnel and receive valuable feedback that will help me to continue to develop,” Bone said. “I plan to make the most of this opportunity and use the experience and feedback to make the most informed decision possible about my basketball future.”
Bone has until June 10 to decide to officially enter the draft. He could still return to Tennessee for his senior season if he does not hire an agent during that time and withdraws from draft consideration by June 10.
No brainer for JB. He can spend the next few months measuring up against future pros, get valuable feedback and doesn’t need to make a final decision until June 10th. Expect we’ll see Grant make the same move. https://t.co/ZfQszgdCJ1— Marc Whiteman (@MarcWhiteman) April 3, 2019
