Georgia Tech sophomore Gani Lawal will make himself available for the NBA draft but is protecting his option of continuing his college career.
Lawal said Monday he will enter his name in the NBA draft. The 6-foot-9 forward said he will not hire an agent. He has until June 15 to remove his name from the draft and protect his eligibility at Georgia Tech.
Lawal said his plan is to "go through the interview and workout process and see where I might fit in."
Lawal scored 15.1 points per game and led the Yellow Jackets with 9.5 rebounds per game, the second-highest average in the Atlantic Coast Conference.
