Kansas swingman Brannen Greene intends to enter the 2016 NBA draft, Jon Rothstein of CBSSports.com reports (via Twitter). The junior intends to hire an agent, which would eliminate the opportunity for Greene to withdraw and return to school for his senior campaign, Rothstein adds.
Greene’s decision to hire an agent is a risky one, given that he is currently ranked No. 173 overall by Chad Ford of ESPN.com and is the No. 23 ranked junior by Jonathan Givony of DraftExpress. The 6’7″ small forward entered college as the No. 33 prospect in the Recruiting Services Consensus Index.
The 21-year-old appeared in 29 games this season and averaged just 5.4 points, 2.1 rebounds and 0.8 assists in 12.4 minutes per outing. His career NCAA numbers are 4.6 points, 1.8 rebounds and 0.7 assists to accompany a shooting line of .446/.422/.872.
