RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - A person familiar with the situation says North Carolina State junior point guard Lorenzo Brown will enter the NBA draft.
The person says Brown has notified coach Mark Gottfried of his plans to skip his final season. The person spoke to The Associated Press on Wednesday night on condition of anonymity because the school hasn't made an official announcement.
A second-team all-Atlantic Coast Conference pick by both the media and the coaches, the 6-foot-5 Brown averaged 12.4 points and a league-best 7.2 assists per game.
N.C. State was the preseason ACC favorite, but lost its NCAA tournament opener to Temple last weekend.
The move wasn't a huge surprise considering Brown and junior C.J. Leslie were both mentioned as candidates to jump to the NBA all season.
