SEATTLE — Washington guard Tony Wroten has announced he will declare for the NBA draft and hire an agent, ending his collegiate career after one season during which he was the Pac-12 freshman of the year but could not get the Huskies to the NCAA tournament.

Wroten made his announcement on Tuesday, less than 48 hours after teammate Terrence Ross announced his intention to leave Washington following his sophomore season.

Wroten was Washington's leading scorer for most of the season, but was the subject of constant debate by fans who were thrilled by Wroten's electric ability to create his own shot but were often left shaking their heads when he struggled to make a simple play.

Wroten averaged 16 points per game but will need to develop an outside shot at the NBA level.
