Auburn freshman forward Isaac Okoro will declare for the 2020 NBA Draft and go through the pre-draft evaluation process, per head coach Bruce Pearl, who told local reporters.

Okoro averaged 12.9 points, 4.4 rebounds and 2.0 assists per game this season for Auburn while making SEC All-Defense, SEC All-Freshman and second-team All-SEC. He shot 51.4 percent from the field, 29.0 percent from beyond the arc and 67.2 percent from the free-throw line.

Tom Green of the Alabama Media Group reports though Okoro will make himself eligible for the 2020 NBA Draft, he is expected to leave the door open for a return to Auburn next season.

The NCAA, like the NBA, has canceled play because of the coronavirus. There will be no March Madness this season and it’s possible the 2020 NBA Draft could be pushed back.

The NBA owners want to resume the 2019-20 season in the summer.
