Jordan Bone is staying in the 2019 NBA Draft as the junior guard is leaving Tennessee, he announced Tuesday night.
One of the SEC’s breakout players last season, the 6-foot-3 Bone put up 13.5 points, 5.8 assists and 3.2 rebounds per game while shooting 46 percent from the floor and 35 percent from three-point range.
Bone is still fightin to get drafted, but his two-way ability coupled with elite speed should make him an enticing potential two-way contract prospect if he goes undrafted.
The loss of Bone signifies a new era beginning at Tennessee. The Vols have been one of the nation’s best teams the past two seasons but they lose four starters from last season’s group — including the dynamic frontcourt of Grant Williams and Admiral Schofield.
