Jaden Springer Declares For Draft

Projected first-round pick Jaden Springer has declared for the draft and will sign with an agent, he said on his Twitter page.

“Playing in the NBA has always been my dream,” Springer said, in part.

The Tennessee point guard is currently rated No. 27 overall on ESPN’s Best Available list and No. 6 at his position. Sam Vecenie of The Athletic and Kevin O’Connor of The Ringer are higher on the 6’4” freshman, as both have Springer ranked as a late lottery pick.

Springer started 15 of 25 games with the Vols this season, posting averages of 12.5 PPG, 3.5 RPG, 2.9 APG and 1.2 SPG while making 43.5% of his 3-point attempts. He had a 30-point game against Georgia last month. He scored 12 points in Tennessee’s first-round loss to Oregon State in the NCAA Tournament.

    Don’t see him as a lottery pick. He’s got size, more a combo guard to me. Reminds me of Rivers. He’s a 1st rd talent still young too.
