Georgia sophomore star Caldwell-Pope giving up final 2 seasons of college, entering NBA draft

Georgia sophomore guard Kentavious Caldwell-Pope will enter the NBA draft.

Coach Mark Fox announced Monday that Caldwell-Pope has hired an agent, ending his college career.

Caldwell-Pope decided to turn pro after finishing second in the Southeastern Conference in scoring at 18.5 points a game. He also swept the player of the year awards handed out by The Associated Press and the league coaches.

In his final college game, Caldwell-Pope scored a career-high 32 points in a loss to LSU at the SEC tournament, making him the 43rd player in Georgia history to reach 1,000 points.
