Maalik Wayns is entering the NBA draft.
Wayns has decided to give up his senior year in order to enter the NBA draft. He said Thursday that it was his lifelong dream to play in the NBA.
Wayns said on March 14th that he would enter the NBA draft, but would consider going back to school. He completely eliminated the return to Villanova now.
He scored 1,191 points in 95 career games. Last season, he led the Wildcats with 17.6 points per game.
“The NBA has been a lifelong dream of mine and I have decided now is the time to pursue it,” Wayns said. “I loved my three years at Villanova. I had the best teammates, coaches and professors anybody could ask for. I will always be a Wildcat.”
