In a news conference on Tuesday, Blake Griffin announced that he will forgo his junior and senior season and enter the NBA Draft.
"It's tough to walk away from something like this but at the same time, it's a big opportunity and I felt like I was ready for it this year," Griffin said.
"This is the right decision. In my mind, it's a no-brainer," head coach Jeff Capel said. "It wasn't a decision to really debate because it's the right one, and it's the best thing for Blake."
