Talented South Carolina G A.J. Lawson announces decision regarding 2019 NBA Draft
The South Carolina Gamecocks and coach Frank Martin have been anxiously awaiting the end of the 2019 NBA Draft process.
That’s because talented freshman G A.J. Lawson was going through the pre-draft process, but he has now reached a final decision.
As you can see below, the rising sophomore announced via Twitter that he will return to school for the 2019-20 season:
Lawson appeared in 29 games in 2018-19, starting 28 of them. He averaged 13.4 points, 4.3 rebounds, 2.9 assists and 1.1 steals per game. He also shot a strong 35.8 percent from beyond the three-point arc.
This is great news for the Gamecocks, who will benefit from having the talented scorer back in Columbia for at least one more year.
