The SportsXchange

Sophomore point guard Michael Carter-Williams will leave Syracuse to enter the 2013 NBA Draft.

"Michael has informed me of his intention to enter the NBA draft," Syracuse head coach Jim Boeheim said in a statement. "He's coming off a tremendous season and we appreciate all he's done for Syracuse basketball. We wish Michael the best of luck as he pursues a pro career."

Carter-Williams, who averaged 11.9 points, 7.3 assists and 4.9 rebounds per game, is projected as a top-15 draft pick. The 6-5, 190-pound point guard led the team in minutes played and steals (2.7 per game) last season after finding playing time scarce as a freshman.
