Gonzaga's Kelly Olynyk, perhaps the most improved player in the country this past season, will give up his final season of college eligibility and enter the 2013 NBA draft, the Spokane Spokesman Review reported. The 7-foot Olynyk redshirted the 2011-2012 season after coming off the bench his two previous years with the Bulldogs. As a fourth-year junior this past season, he was named a first-team Associated Press All-American after averaging 17.8 points and 7.3 rebounds. NBADraft.net projects him to be the 10th player selected in the first round of the NBA draft, and ESPN.com projects him to be the No. 16 overall selection.
