LAWRENCE, Kan. — Kansas junior forward Dedric Lawson has decided to enter his name in the 2019 NBA draft, he reported Monday on Twitter.

“First I would like to thank God for blessing me with the talent and opportunities to play the game I love. I would also like to thank coach (Bill) Self, KU coaching staff, academic advisors and the best fans in the country from the University of Kansas for allowing me to recreate myself and display my talents. After prayer and discussion with my family I will pursue my life’s dream by declaring for the NBA draft. I will begin my preparation for the NBA immediately. RockChalk Jayhawk for Life!” he added on Twitter.

Lawson, a 6-foot-9 native of Memphis, averaged 19.4 points and 10.3 rebounds per game last season, earning first-team all-Big 12 honors and consensus third-team All-America honors.
