Georgia junior Rayshaun Hammonds announces his 2020 NBA Draft decision
Georgia’s basketball program has already lost Anthony Edwards to the 2020 NBA Draft and now Rayshaun Hammonds will be joining him.
The key difference, however, is that Hammonds has decided he will not hire an agent at this time in order to preserve his eligibility, should he decide at a later date to return to school for his senior season.
Hammonds announced his decision on Friday.
“First I would like to thank God for blessing me with this opportunity. I would also like to thank the University of Georgia for these past three years of my career, it has been fun being a Bulldawg. To my coaching staff, teammates, family and friends, thank you for supporting me along the way. That being said, I will be entering the 2020 NBA Draft while maintaining eligibility. Thank you.”
Hammonds started the first 27 games of the season for the Bulldogs before suffering an injury. He averaged 12.9 points and 7.4 rebounds per game last season.
