SYRACUSE, N.Y. -- Syracuse sophomore forward Jerami Grant is entering the NBA draft, becoming the second Orange starter in less than three weeks to announce he's going pro.

The Syracuse athletic department released a statement from Grant on Monday saying he decided to enter the 2014 NBA draft after discussions with his family and coaches.

The 6-foot-8 Grant started 20 of 32 games for the Orange this season, averaging 12.1 points and a team-leading 6.8 rebounds. He helped Syracuse start the season 25-0 and attain a No. 1 ranking in the AP Top 25 poll before the Orange were eliminated from the NCAA tournament in a loss to Dayton in the South Regional.

Syracuse freshman point guard Tyler Ennis announced on March 27 that he was entering the NBA draft.
