Babbitt leaves Nevada for NBA

Nevada sophomore forward Luke Babbitt, one of the last major holdouts to make a decision, has announced that he will enter the NBA Draft.

“After a lot of praying, gathering information and talking to my family and coaches, I have made the decision to hire an agent and enter the 2010 NBA Draft,” Babbitt said in a release. “The two years I have spent at Nevada and the 12 years I have spent living in the Reno community as a Wolf Pack fan have been unbelievable, yet I feel like now is the best time to move forward with my lifelong dream of playing professional basketball.”

Babbitt averaged 21.9 points and 8.9 rebounds last season, winning the WAC Player of the Year award. He is projected as a late first round pick by several mock drafts.
