UNC's Ellington to enter NBA draft

North Carolina junior guard Wayne Ellington, of Episcopal Academy, will enter the NBA draft.

Ellington, the most outstanding player of the Final Four, announced his plans at a news conference this afternoon in Chapel Hill, along with junior point guard Ty Lawson. UNC won the national championship earlier this month in Detroit by beating Villanova in the national semifinals and Michigan State in the title game.

Last season, Ellington and Lawson declared for the draft before returning to school. Ellington averaged 16 points per game last season for the Tar Heels. Lawson averaged 17 points.
