LAWRENCE — Wayne Selden has played his last basketball game at the University of Kansas.

The 6-5 junior announced today that he has declared for the NBA draft and will be signing an agent. Teammate Cheick Diallo declared on Monday, but didn’t sign with an agent, which means the possibility exists that he can come back.

“The last three years have been a true blessing to experience as a Jayhawk, an opportunity I am so thankful for," Selden said in the KU release. "That being said, I'd like to announce that I will be declaring for the 2016 NBA draft. It has always been our plan that my college experience would be three years. I plan to hire representation in the coming weeks.

"I want to thank the Kansas fans for their support as a Jayhawk over the years. The support is unmatched and has been the driving force in games," Selden added. "I would like to thank each of my brothers. Together we battled through the tough and celebrated the good. Giving our all for one another. I'd also like to thank coach Self and the entire Kansas basketball staff. I've received three years of meaningful experiences and guidance both on and off the court."

Selden averaged 13.8 points this season and has been a three-year starter for the Jayhawks.
