Report: Kansas’ Bill Self Confirms Thomas Robinson Will Enter NBA Draft
It already wasn’t a very well-kept secret, and now even less so: Kansas basketball coach Bill Self has told ESPN.com’s Andy Katz that Thomas Robinson is entering the NBA draft.
Robinson’s intentions have been known around Lawrence, Kans., for the last month, but the junior power forward will make it official in a news conference at 12:30 p.m. Eastern tomorrow at Allen Fieldhouse.
Robinson averaged 17.9 points and 11.8 rebounds per game this season for the Jayhawks, leading them to a regular-season Big 12 title and a berth in the national championship game as well. Kansas lost 67-59 to Kentucky on Monday.
Robinson was a first team All-American and an All-NCAA Tournament selection. He is projected to be a top-five pick in the draft in June.
