Georgetown sophomore guard Mac McClung plans to enter the 2020 NBA Draft, according to ESPN’s Jonathan Givony.
McClung, who generated internet buzz in high school because of his highlight reel dunks, will still maintain eligibility, meaning he can still return to the Hilltop after the draft process.

McClung was having a strong season, averaging 15 points, 3.1 rebounds, 2.4 assists and 1.7 steals per game, until a foot injury caused him to miss a good chunk of the sophomore campaign. McClung’s last game for the Hoyas was on Feb. 19 against Providence where he scored two points in eight minutes of play.
McClung’s name hasn’t been brought up in any mock draft. However, the 6-foot-2 could get private workouts from teams that want to look at his athleticism and shooting touch. McClung shot 39% from the floor last season when he was named to the Big East All-freshman team.
The draft process is completely up in the air due to the coronavirus suspending the NBA for the time being.
“Going through this NBA pre-draft process with all the unknown is very challenging for me,” McClung told ESPN. “Not knowing if I will have the opportunity to work out for teams, or the status of the NBA combine make this process different. I understand that the NBA draft process will be different this year given the COVID-19 pandemic around the world.”
