Providence guard Kris Dunn plans to return for his junior season and bypass the NBA draft, league sources told Yahoo Sports.
A formal announcement is expected soon, sources told Yahoo Sports.
Dunn is the highest-rated underclassman still publicly undecided about entering the June NBA draft. NBA executives believe the 6-foot-4 Dunn could have ascended into the late lottery – or the mid-part of the first round.
Draftexpress.com has Dunn pegged at No. 13 in its most recent mock draft.
Dunn, 21, averaged 15.6 points, 7.5 assists and 2.7 steals for the Friars last season.
