Michael Carter-Williams is declaring himself eligible for the NBA draft.

"Michael has informed me of his intention to enter the NBA Draft," Syracuse coach Jim Boeheim said in a statement. "He's coming off a tremendous season and we appreciate all he's done for Syracuse basketball. We wish Michael the best of luck as he pursues a pro career."

Carter-Williams, a 6-foot-6 point guard, led the Orange to the Final Four this season and averaged 11.9 points and 7.3 assists in 35.2 minutes per game.

Carter-Williams is projected as a lottery pick in the June draft.
