Report: OG Anunoby leaning towards entering 2017 NBA draft
Indiana sophomore forward OG Anunoby, who missed the final 15 games of the season with a knee injury, is reportedly leaning towards entering the 2017 NBA draft.
Gary Parrish, a national basketball writer for CBSSports.com, reported late Wednesday afternoon that Anunoby is leaning towards entering the draft.
Anunoby was injured in Indiana’s 75-72 win at Penn State on Jan. 18, but details of his injuries were never made public. He underwent season-ending knee surgery on Jan. 31.
The Jefferson City (Mo.) product averaged 11.1 points, 5.4 rebounds, 1.4 assists, 1.3 steals and 1.3 blocks in 25.1 minutes per game last season.
Anunoby is still widely considered a first round pick, despite the injury. Both Chad Ford of ESPN.com and Draft Express rank Anunoby as the No. 18 prospect overall in this year’s draft.
