Keita Bates-Diop Reportedly Headed To The NBA

Per a release from Ohio State, Keita Bates-Diop is set to make an announcement at 2pm Eastern today, with head coach Chris Holtmann also available for questions and comment.

Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN is reporting that the press conference is being held to announce the Big Ten Player of the Year’s intentions to forego his senior season and declare for the NBA draft.

Bates-Diop led an unexpected resurgence of the Buckeye program this year — leading the team in points and rebounds after coming back from an injury riddled career.

If true, the announcement would come as little surprise for a player that has improved his NBA stock considerably to a potential mid to late first round pick.

The news also let’s Chris Holtmann and Ohio State move on with an extra scholarship and known direction for a program that will be looking to build off of the momentum Bates-Diop had a large part in creating.

We’ll have more as this story develops.
