Indiana guard Devonte Green has decided to enter his name in the 2019 NBA Draft, allowing him to test the waters and get feedback on a potential professional jump.

The junior becomes the second Hoosier to declare for the draft, joining freshman phenom Romeo Langford who declared nearly two weeks ago. Green finished the season as IU’s best three-point shooter—he hit 41 percent of his shots from beyond the arc. He also averaged 9.4 points, 3.4 rebounds, and three assists per game as a key bench contributor and spot starter for the Hoosiers.

Green became particularly important for Indiana down the stretch. He scored in double digits in each of IU’s last seven games of the season, starting each of the games during Indiana’s NIT run when Langford was sidelined with an injury. He had possibly the best game of his college career in the Big Ten Tournament against Ohio State. In that game he shot 8-10 from downtown on his way to scoring a career-high 26 points. He also tacked on four assists, a pair of steals, a pair of blocks, and a rebound against the Buckeyes.

Green now has until May 29 to withdraw from the draft if he wants to keep his college eligibility.
