Derrick Favors will enter the NBA Draft, Georgia Tech officials announced Friday afternoon.
Favors joins fellow Tech post player Gani Lawal as early entrants into the NBA draft. Lawal announced a week ago he’d be leaving to enter the draft after his junior season.
Favors was Tech’s second-leading scorer and rebounder behind Lawal this season, averaging 12.4 points and 8.4 rebounds. He became Tech’s 11th ACC rookie of the year.
Favors is ranked fourth in RealGM's most recent Top 100 for the 2010 NBA Draft.
