Anthony Davis, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, Terrence Jones, Marquis Teague and Doron Lamb declared for the draft during a group news conference Tuesday.
"Terrence (suggested a group announcement) first, but then we were all like, 'Yeah, that's a good idea; let's just do that,'" Teague said. "We've been doing this thing together the whole year. Let's finish that way."
Davis, who won National Player of the Year, Defensive Player of the Year and Most Outstanding Player at the Final Four, insisted he didn't reach a decision until Monday night.
"A lot of people say it should have been an easy decision," Davis said. "But I'm just going to miss this place. Won a national championship here. We all did a lot for this school, and I'm going to miss it."
