Mike Anderson announces Daniel Gafford will declare for NBA Draft, skip the NIT
Daniel Gafford’s career as a Razorback is officially over.
When Arkansas lost to Florida in the 2019 SEC Tournament, many suspected that may have been Gafford’s final appearance with the team but that was before it was announced the Razorbacks had been selected to compete in the 2019 NIT. With Arkansas still having at least one game remaining this season, it turns out Gafford is already done playing for the team.
Mike Anderson announced the news Monday after declaring Gafford is, in fact, heading to the NBA, as expected.
Gafford made All-SEC Freshman team last season and was named All-SEC First Team following his sophomore season with the Razorbacks.
Video of Anderson’s press conference was shared by Andrew Scaglione of News 5 out of Fayetteville:
