MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WMC) - Memphis’ Moussa Cisse announced Tuesday he has declared for the 2021 NBA Draft.

The freshman center who was named AAC Freshman of the Year posted the announcement on Instagram exclaiming, “DREAMS DO COME TRUE!”

“I want to thank my GTG and Tiger family for their continued support throughout the pandemic and during the restrictions at the FedExForum,” he writes, later adding, “I am elated to announce that I am declaring for the 2021 NBA Draft.”

Cisse opted to maintain his NCAA eligibility, however, by not signing with an agent.
