NC State's Warren entering NBA Draft

Raleigh, NC (SportsNetwork.com) - North Carolina State sophomore forward T.J. Warren is foregoing his final two seasons of eligibility and will enter the NBA Draft.

Warren captured Atlantic Coast Conference player of the year honors this past season after averaging a conference-best 24.9 points per game.

"I would like to thank my coaches and teammates at NC State for allowing me to compete for this great university," said Warren in a statement released on Tuesday. "It's been a fun ride the last few years. I've had some great experiences and now I feel I'm ready to play at the next level. Playing in the NBA has been a lifelong dream of mine and playing at NC State has prepared me well to achieve my dream."

Warren also led the ACC in field goal percentage, becoming the third player in conference history to lead the ACC in scoring and field goal percentage in the same season. He set school records for points in a single season (871) and games with 20-plus points in a season (31).

"I am extremely proud of T.J. He has developed tremendously as a person and as a player over the last two years," NC State head coach Mark Gottfried said. "He has matured and become a special player to coach. I truly believe he was the best offensive player in the nation this year, and although he is a great scorer, his rebounding and defensive improvement are often underappreciated. I am excited for T.J. and want the very best for him. I believe in him and will miss having him in our program."
