Buffs’ McKinley Wright to test NBA Draft process

BOULDER — The Colorado Buffaloes top scorer from this past season is testing the NBA draft waters.

CU junior guard McKinley Wright will test the NBA draft process, but will not sign with an agent, leaving the door open to return for his senior year.

In a post on twitter, Wright wrote in part, “Ever since I was five years old, my dream has been to play in the NBA…I have decided to enter the 2020 NBA Draft process while keeping my eligibility. Please respect and support my decision!”

Junior forward Tyler Bey is also expected to test the draft process, but has not made any formal announcement.

Both will have 10 days prior to the draft to either declare to the NBA or return to school.

Wright was named a first-team all-Pac-12 selection for the second time earlier this month. He led the Buffaloes at 14.2 points and 5.1 assists per game.

Currently, Wright is not found on any mock draft boards, while Bey has ranged from a late first-round-pick to an undrafted.
