Memphis’ Will Barton bolting for NBA, expected to sign agent
Memphis sophomore Will Barton went from promising freshman to sophomore star.
Now he’ll head to the NBA.
The 6-5 Barton averaged 18 points and eight rebounds this season – both tops on the Tigers – which were big jumps from his freshman season (12.3 ppg and 4.9 rpg), thanks to vastly improved shooting and fewer turnovers.
He’s expected to be a late first-round or early second-round selection in June’s draft.
