Kris Dunn is headed off to the NBA, a decision that should not surprise anyone.

He’ll be signing with an agent, according to ESPN.com.

Dunn returned to Providence last season in order to earn his degree. The redshirt junior did just that, and while he’s leaving school with a year of eligiblity remaining, he’s now completed his fourth season in college; Dunn redshirted his freshman season due to surgery on his shoulder.

As a junior, Dunn averaged 16.4 points, 6.2 assists and 5.3 rebounds, and while he shot an improved 37 percent from three, although he still committed 3.5 turnovers per game.

The Friars went 23-10 on the season before losing to North Carolina in the second round of the NCAA tournament.
