It’s a few years later than we expected, but Wayne Selden Jr. is prepared to chase his dreams.
“The last three years have been a true blessing to experience as a Jayhawk, an opportunity I am so thankful for,” Selden said. “That being said, I’d like to announce that I will be declaring for the 2016 NBA draft. It has always been our plan that my college experience would be three years. I plan to hire representation in the coming weeks.
“I want to thank the Kansas fans for their support as a Jayhawk over the years. The support is unmatched and has been the driving force in games. I would like to thank each of my brothers. Together we battled through the tough and celebrated the good. Giving our all for one another. I’d also like to thank Coach Self and the entire Kansas basketball staff. I’ve received three years of meaningful experiences and guidance both on and off the court.”
The University of Kansas shooting guard officially declared for the 2016 NBA draft Tuesday after the Jayhawks Elite Eight loss to Villanova.
In 34 appearances prior to the NCAA tournament, Selden averaged 13.3 points while shooting 47.3 percent from the field and 40.8 percent from three.
