Arkansas star Portis heads to NBA Draft

Arkansas Razorbacks Sophomore forward Bobby Portis announced Tuesday he'll forgo his final two years of eligibility and enter the 2015 NBA Draft.

Portis led the Razorbacks to the team's first NCAA tournament bid under coach Mike Anderson. He averaged 17.5 points per game and 8.9 rebounds per game while winning SEC Player of the Year honors.

The 6-foot-10 Portis is considered to be a fringe lottery pick, and currently sits in the 18th spot in a mock draft by website DraftExpress.com.
