FSU Guard Dwayne Bacon Declares For The NBA Draft

Florida State lost another key player to the 2016 NBA Draft.

Florida State guard Dwayne Bacon has declared for the NBA Draft. Bacon led the Seminoles in points per game with 15.8 and rebounds with 5.8 during the 2015-2016 season. Bacon joins fellow freshman Malik Beasley as the first players in Florida State history to be one and done.

Bacon announced his decision via Twitter.

This is a major blow to high hopes for the 2016-2017 season for Florida State fans. Per the new NBA rules a player may put his name into the draft, and participate in one combine per year. If they do not like their draft stock they have the option to return to college until 10 days after the combine.

The wording of Bacon's tweet makes this option seem feasible, but multiple mock drafts have him being selected in the mid to late first round. Bacon has the athletic ability to be a great NBA player, but will still need time to develop where ever he is at next year.
