Kansas sophomore guard Devon Dotson will declare for the 2020 NBA draft, reports Jeff Goodman of Stadium (Twitter link). Dotson, who tested the draft waters and participated in the combine last spring, is expected to forgo his remaining eligibility and go pro this time around, per Goodman.
Dotson, who started all 66 games he played for the Jayhawks in his two college seasons, boosted his averages to 18.1 PPG, 4.1 RPG, 4.0 APG, and 2.1 SPG as a sophomore, though his shooting percentages dipped slightly to 46.8% from the field and 30.9% from beyond the arc.
The 6’2″ point guard currently ranks 31st overall on ESPN’s big board, making him a candidate to be drafted in the first round. ESPN’s most recent mock draft projected him to come off the board at No. 32 to the Hornets.
Dotson becomes the latest addition to our list of early entrants for the 2020 draft, which now includes more than 110 college players.
