Georgia Tech guard Josh Okogie remains in NBA draft
ATLANTA (AP) — Josh Okogie has decided to remain in the NBA draft, ending his career at Georgia Tech after two seasons.
The 6-foot-4 guard announced his decision Monday. The draft will be held June 21.
Okogie submitted his application to the NBA undergraduate advisory committee in March, participated in workouts and interviews with NBA teams, and attended the last week’s draft combine in Chicago.
Okogie ranked fourth in the Atlantic Coast Conference at 18.2 points per game as a sophomore. He averaged 16.9 points over his two seasons with the Yellow Jackets, coming one of six players in school history to reach 1,000 points in their sophomore year.
Georgia Tech coach Josh Pastner says he fully supports Okogie’s decision, even though he’s not projected as a first-round pick by most analysts.
