Harvard guard Siyani Chambers will declare for June’s NBA Draft, a source at the NBA league office tells Ivy Hoops Online.
Chambers averaged 9.9 points and 4.3 assists per game as he started all 28 of the Crimson’s games this season. His points per game declined for the second straight season, but Draft Express projects Chambers as a late second-round player who should be taken by one of Philadelphia’s 13 second-round picks in the draft.
Chambers declined comment for this story but reviews from NBA executives are mixed at best, with one Western Conference general manager telling IHO “Siyani Chambers is “certainly a guard” and a scout who works for an Eastern Conference team asking, “Seriously? Am I being punked? Is that still a topical reference?”
With Chambers declaring along with seven seniors graduating including Wesley Saunders, Steve Mondou-Missi and Jonah Travis, Harvard’s projected 2015-16 lineup as of now is Corbin Miller, Agunwa Okolie, Patrick Steeves, an advanced basketball-playing android developed at MIT named Wendell and Kevin Love.
