    Mac McClung, the 6-foot-2 sophomore guard from Georgetown, will declare for the NBA Draft.

    “I have declared for the 2020 NBA Draft while also maintaining eligibility,” McClung told ESPN in a text message. “I have submitted my form to the Undergraduate Advisory Committee, and sent in paperwork to the league office. I have also signed with an NBA/NCAA certified agent which gives me an opportunity to go through this process while also maintaining eligibility.”

    McClung averaged 15.7 points, 3.1 rebounds and 2.4 assists last season despite battling foot and eye injuries.

    Due to coronavirus, McClung told ESPN he will remain in his native Virginia and try to prepare for workouts and the NBA Draft — which now may not take place until August or September.

    “Going through this NBA pre-draft process with all the unknown is very challenging for me,” he told ESPN. “Not knowing if I will have the opportunity to work out for teams, or the status of the NBA combine make this process different. I understand that the NBA draft process will be different this year given the COVID-19 pandemic around the world. I am looking forward to getting feedback from NBA teams, as well as give NBA teams an opportunity to get to know me on a more personal level. I feel as if I have an obligation with the platform I have to remind people the importance of social distancing and staying home as much as possible.”
