ISU’s Wigginton addresses early entry in to NBA draft

AMES (KWWL) — Iowa State sophomore Lindell Wigginton says he has no regrets. The Cyclone point guard addressed the media for the first time since submitting paperwork last week for early entry in to the NBA draft.

Wigginton tested the waters after a stellar freshman season, but ultimately decided to return to Ames. Injuries derailed the start to his sophomore campaign and led to a decrease in playing time. Wigginton, however, intends to stay in the draft this time around and says last year’s experience will be an advantage as he goes through the process again.

“I know what it takes to go in to the workouts. You do what you’ve got to do, and just be yourself,” says Wigginton, “So, last year I had experience with it. This year I think I’ll be more experienced with it, but I know what I can do. The scouts know what I can do. Obviously, it wasn’t the season I wanted it to be. I’ve just got to go into the workout and be me.”

Freshman Talen Horton-Tucker joined Wigginton in filing paperwork last week. The NBA draft is set for June 20.
