North Carolina State sophomore forward T.J. Warren will declare for the 2014 NBA draft, according to a Yahoo Sports report. A formal announcement is expected to be made soon.
Warren, 20, averaged 24.9 points and 7.1 rebounds in 35.4 minutes per game on the season, winning 2014 ACC Player of the Year honors. He tallied 25 points and five rebounds in NC State's NCAA tournament first-round victory over Xavier and registered 29 points and eight rebounds in a second-round loss to Saint Louis.
Sports Illustrated’s Chris Mannix did not include Warren in the top 20 of his latest big board, which was released in February. A native of North Carolina who attended prep school in New Hampshire, Warren is listed at 6-foot-8 and 215 pounds and currently ranks No. 18 on DraftExpress.com's Top 100 and No. 20 on Chad Ford's Top 100.
