An online news website in Providence is reporting that Hamilton native Michael Carter-Williams will turn pro and enter this spring's NBA draft.
GoLocalProv, citing "multiple sources," said Carter-Williams will declare for this spring professional draft.
The draft is in June.
Carter-Williams is a Hamilton native who played his freshman year at Hamilton-Wenham Regional High School before transferring to St. Andrew's School in Rhode Island. The point guard was a McDonald’s All-American his senior year in 2011. He is in his sophomore year at Syracuse University and is leading the NCAA in assists per game.
Carter-Williams spent a lot of time on the bench in his freshman year - including a Sweet 16 game at the TD Garden last spring - but has burst into the headlines this year.
GoLocalProv reported that Carter-Williams could be a high pick because this year's draft is "considered weak."
