LAWRENCE, Kan. — Malik Newman has played his last game for the Kansas basketball team.

Newman, a 6-foot-3 red-shirt sophomore guard from Jackson, Miss., who was KU’s best player during the squad’s NCAA Tournament run to the Final Four in 2018, has declared for the NBA draft and will leave the program, he announced Wednesday.

“We kind of figured I’d sit out a year (after transferring from Mississippi State after his freshman year), then if things go as planned the year I played, then yeah most definitely I’d try to pursue that dream of being in the NBA,” Newman said in a phone interview with The Star.
