The University of Kansas has scheduled a news conference Monday at its Allen Fieldhouse with Canadian freshman star Andrew Wiggins and basketball coach Bill Self.
According to multiple reports, Wiggins, of Vaughan, Ont., will announce his intention to declare for the upcoming NBA draft.
Wiggins has said he planned to turn pro after one collegiate season, though Kansas would not say what Monday's news will be.
The 6-foot-8 Wiggins led Kansas in scoring at 17.1 points per game and averaged 5.9 rebounds. The Canadian was the Big 12 freshman of the year and a first-team all-conference selection. He is expected to be one of the top picks in the draft.
Fellow Kansas freshman Wayne Selden Jr. has already announced he will return to school. Freshman centre Joel Embiid, who also has a chance to be the top overall pick, has yet to announce his plans.
