Paul George declares (tweets) for NBA draft?
By Diamond Leung
Hours after Fresno State was bounced from the WAC tournament, sophomore forward Paul George let it be known on Twitter that he intends to declare for the NBA draft and is strongly considering leaving school.
"Testing the waters my tweets but I'm leanin towards leavin to the draft," George tweeted.
George, who had 22 points and 11 rebounds in a quarterfinal loss to Louisiana Tech, missed time due to a sprained ankle this year and a member of the all-WAC second team. He averaged 16.8 points and 7. 2 rebounds.
"I am excited to get in the weight room when we get back to Fresno and get to work on preparing for next year," George told reporters after the game.
It appears he might have been talking about the NBA.
