Trendon Watford Declares For 2020 NBA Draft

Apr 12, 2020 2:38 PM

LSU freshman Trendon Watford declared for the 2020 NBA Draft on Sunday.

Watford, the No. 73 ranked player in ESPN's Top 100, averaged 13.6 points and 7.2 rebounds for LSU.

"I really don't know what the draft process will look like. I'm just hopeful that things will return to normal somewhat and I can get a chance to audition and workout for teams. If not then I will be focused on handling the interview process as best as I possibly can with the outcome of being a first round pick. I really want to go through the process because you dream about these things as a kid. I think I would raise my stock also. I'm still hopeful that we will have a combine and some workouts," said Watford about the draft process with the league suspended.

The draft is currently scheduled for June 25th, but teams are lobbying for it to be pushed back to August to preserve the pre-draft process.

Five-star recruit Cameron Thomas announced his commitment to LSU.

Thomas, ranked No. 18 in ESPN's 100, picked LSU over UCLA.

Thomas said he liked the freedom that LSU coach Will Wade gives his guards.

"Coach Wade lets his guards play. Their plan is for me to come in and score points and make plays. That's what I do," said Thomas.
