RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - North Carolina State's Lorenzo Brown says he's ready to enter the NBA draft.
The junior point guard held a news conference Thursday with coach Mark Gottfried to announce his plans to skip his final season with the Wolfpack.
Gottfried says he spoke with representatives of about 15 to 20 NBA teams and believes that Brown can be a first-round pick.
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.
The move wasn't a huge surprise considering Brown and junior C.J. Leslie were both mentioned as likely candidates to jump to the NBA all season.
