Cody Zeller is NBA bound, too.
A source told The Indianapolis Star the 7-foot Indiana University sophomore will make it official at a 4 p.m. ET news conference Wednesday at Assembly Hall.
The decision comes less than 24 hours after teammate Victor Oladipo announced his decision to enter the draft.
Neither decision was a surprise. Both players are considered probable NBA lottery picks. But while Oladipo’s stock appeared to soar in recent months, Zeller’s play at times raised questions about whether he’s physically ready to compete in the NBA.
Zeller, a second team All-America by the Associated Press, scored 1,157 points in 72 games in his IU career, a 16.1 average. He averaged 7.3 rebounds.
The Hoosiers were 56-16 with Zeller and made back-to-back appearances in the NCAA tournament’s Sweet Sixteen. This year, Indiana won its first outright Big Ten championship since 1993 and a No. 1 seed in the NCAA tournament.
