Keon Johnson Declares For 2021 NBA Draft 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Wed Apr 7, 2021 3:06 pm

Keon Johnson will declare for the 2021 NBA Draft, leaving Tennessee after his freshman season.


Johnson is the No. 6 prospect in the ESPN 100 and averaged 11.3 points, 3.5 rebounds and 2.5 assists in 25 minutes per game.


"The NBA has always been my goal, but I never expected it to come this soon," Johnson said. "I really don't care what number I get drafted at. I just want to go somewhere I fit in that organization. Where I can keep developing and find my niche."


Johnson is considered a late bloomer as he also played basketball.


Johnson is considered one of the quickest and most explosive players in the college game in terms of his ability to accelerate from a standstill and get off his feet for dunks and blocks.


"I think NBA teams see a defensive-minded guard who can score at all three levels," Johnson said. "I feel like my 3-point shot is going to improve and keep me on the court in the NBA, along with my versatility on the offensive end."

Why does realgm always do such a poor job proof reading? The ESPN article doesn’t make the same mistake.
