Florida's Frazier makes it official, declares for NBA draft

GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) Florida guard Michael Frazier II made it official Friday: He's leaving school early and entering the NBA draft.

Frazier thanked coaches, teammates and fans on his Twitter page and added that he has signed with agent Matt Ramker of ASM Sports.

Frazier says he ''will never forget my time in Gainesville and look forward to returning each summer to complete my degree.'' Frazier is expected to go through the draft process without considering a return to Florida.

A two-year starter and one of the top 3-point shooters in the Southeastern Conference, Frazier was second on the team in scoring this season. He averaged 12.1 points and made 57 of 150 shots (38 percent) from behind the arc. He also averaged 4.1 rebounds and shot 87 percent from the free-throw line.
