Vanderbilt guard Aaron Nesmith is declaring for the NBA Draft with the intentions of forgoing his college eligibility, he tells 247Sports.
“I’ve decided to go through the process and intend to hire an agent,” Nesmith said. “I’m just getting ready for the next steps and just learn even more at the highest level because it’s always been a dream to play in the NBA so it’s going to be fun to go out there and go through it.”
Nesmith’s move to the NBA comes after a breakout sophomore season. Although he played just 14 games due to an injury, Nesmith was fantastic when he was healthy, averaging 23 points, 4.9 rebounds and 1.4 steals a game.
