French big man Olivier Sarr announced Tuesday he will forgo his remaining eligibility and declare for the 2021 NBA Draft.
Sarr spent a season at Kentucky after transferring from Wake Forest.
He averaged 10.8 points, 5.2 rebounds and 1.2 blocks, shooting 47% from the field, 44% from long range and 79% from the foul line.
I am so happy for @sarr_olivier and excited to see what he does with this next step in his journey, Olivier really improved himself this season, yet he still has a ton of room to grow and has the type of skills that translate to that next level. https://t.co/trgO8ddYYk
