Another LSU basketball pair declare for NBA Draft

LSU’s Javonte Smart and Emmitt Williams

BATON ROUGE – LSU freshmen basketball players Javonte Smart and Emmitt Williams have joined other teammates in declaring for the NBA Draft.

The duo joins Skylar Mays, Tremont Waters and Naz Reid who have already declared for the draft.

The Tigers also will lose senior Kavell Bigby-Williams.

LSU won the regular-season SEC Championship and advanced the Sweet Sixteen in the NCAA Tournament but were clouded by the suspension of head coach Will Wade due to his refusal to talk about wiretaps regarding recruiting.
