Anthony Edwards to enter 2020 NBA Draft
Anthony Edwards will enter the 2020 NBA Draft after just one season with the Georgia Bulldogs in Athens.
Edwards leaving Athens comes as no surprise, as he is regarded as a possible number one pick in the upcoming draft. The 2020 NBA Draft is currently scheduled for June 25, 2020 at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y.
“I just want to declare for the 2020 NBA Draft,” Edwards told 247Sports. “I think I should go number one, no doubt. That’s the only place I think I should go.”
Edwards has already signed with an agent. Octagon Basketball, which reps players such as Stephen Curry, Luol Deng, and Seth Curry, tweeted that Anthony Edwards had joined the team earlier on Friday.
