Marcus Smart Declares For NBA Draft

Apr 7, 2014 7:30 PM

Marcus Smart has announced he will declare for the 2014 NBA Draft.

Smart decided to return for his sophomore season and averaged 17.8 points, 5.7 rebounds and 4.7 assists this season for Oklahoma State.

"I had a great season here at Oklahoma State," Smart told the newspaper. "It's weird, because I didn't go to the NBA Draft last year, I chose to come back -- which I do not regret at all. A lot of people say I made the wrong decision. But who are they to tell me what I should have done? It's me, not them.

"I believe I made the right decision. I get to do what I love to do."

Oklahoma State was eliminated in the second round of the season.

"I've told my teammates and my coaching staff, this year was my last year here and I am declaring for the NBA Draft," Smart told the Oklahoman. "I have picked an agent, with the Wasserman Group, a great group of guys.

"Ready to rock and roll. I'm getting ready for the NBA Draft and I'm ready to start training."
