    The offseason turnover at Georgetown continues as Georgetown’s Omer Yurtseven will enter the NBA Draft, according to Jon Rothstein.

    The 7-footer from Turkey averaged 15.5 points, 9.8 rebounds and 1.5 blocks for the Hoyas this season. He had a year of eligibility remaining.

    Georgetown sophomore Mac McClung will also test the NBA Draft waters, although there have been rumblings he may transfer instead.

    The Draft is set for June 25 at Barclays Center, but is expected to be pushed until August or September due to the pandemic.
