BOULDER, Colo — Tyler Bey's days in Boulder are done.
The junior star basketball player for CU is declaring for the NBA Draft. Bey shared the news on Twitter Sunday night.
Bey did not indicate that he plans to simply explore his NBA options, but rather is set on leaving CU and pursuing his dream of becoming a professional basketball player. Juniors are allowed to pull their name out of draft consideration as long as they don't hire an agent.
Bey's teammate McKinley Wright IV, a fellow junior, announced on Thursday he'd be entering the NBA Draft pool but would not be hiring an agent, leaving the door open for a possible return to Colorado next season.
In 31 games in 2019-2020, Bey averaged 13.8 points and nine rebounds per game.
The Buffs and Bey would have made the NCAA Tournament, but it was canceled due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
