Xavier injured star Edmond Sumner declares for the NBA Draft
“First let me start by saying these three years at Xavier have been the best of my life,” Sumner said in a statement. “I have certainly been presented with some ups and downs but they have only served to make me a stronger person. This decision was very hard for me because of the love I have for X. After weighing my options with my family, I have decided to enter the 2017 NBA Draft, fulfilling a lifelong dream. I want to thank Coach Mack and the rest of the staff for believing in me and giving me a chance when no one did! I’ll always be grateful for that. Xavier Nation I will always love you!”
Sumner, a 6-foot-6 point guard with dynamic athleticism and first round potential that averaged 15.0 points, but he is coming off of a torn ACL that he suffered in January. He’s likely to be a second round pick in this year’s NBA Draft.
This is a big loss for the Musketeers, but it’s one that they planned for. After his eruption last season, most expected him to put his name in the draft this season.https://www.myfantasysportstalk.com/xavier-injured-star-edmond-sumner-declares-for-the-nba-draft/https://i0.wp.com/www.myfantasysportstalk.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/03/EdmondSumnergZ8OpWZ8Uf5m.jpg?fit=360%2C240&ssl=1https://i0.wp.com/www.myfantasysportstalk.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/03/EdmondSumnergZ8OpWZ8Uf5m.jpg?resize=150%2C150&ssl=1NBANCAABRecent PostsCollege Basketball,Edmond Sumner,NBA Draft,Xavier MusketeersXavier sophomore Edmond Sumner has declared for the NBA Draft and is expected to sign with an agent. “First let me start by saying these three years at Xavier have been the best of my life,” Sumner said in a statement. “I have certainly been presented with some ups and...Dan SchalkDan Schalkmyfantasysportstalk@gmail.comAdministratorDan Schalk is a sports enthusiast with degrees in Sports Coaching and Sports Management.
