OU's Khadeem Lattin Applies For Early Entry In 2017 NBA Draft
Oklahoma big man Khadeem Lattin has submitted his name for early entry in the 2017 NBA Draft, according to a list the league released on Tuesday
Underclassmen interested in entering the draft had to submit a letter to the NBA by April, 23, and Lattin was one of 182 players on that list.

Lattin averaged 8.4 points and 6.3 rebounds last season as a junior, but Tuesday's news comes as a surprise as Lattin wasn't expected to make an early leap for the NBA. Lattin has until Wednesday, May 24 to withdraw his name in order to remain eligible for his final year at Oklahoma.
A bunch of these guys will drop out and withdraw once they realize they aren’t being invited to combine. Some doing it just for attention.— Jeff Goodman (@GoodmanESPN) April 25, 2017
