Purdue All-Big Ten guard Jaden Ivey entered his name into the NBA Draft. Ivey didn’t clarify whether he would retain his eligibility. Ivey is expected to be a lottery pick in this upcoming NBA Draft.
The 6-foot-4 Ivey earned second team All-America honors this season, averaging 17.3 points, 4.9 rebounds and 3.1 assists per game for Purdue. He also is one of five finalists for the Wooden Award.
“I will be entering my name in the 2022 NBA Draft,” Ivey posted to Twitter, in part. “This has been a lifelong dream of mine and I am beyond excited for this journey.”
Ivey led Purdue to a 29-8 record and a spot in the Sweet 16 of the NCAA Tournament.
