Weber State junior All-American guard Damian Lillard is holding a press conference at noon Tuesday in the Dee Events Center. He is expected to announce his entry into the NBA Draft, which is scheduled for June 28.
Lillard, the Big Sky Conference MVP, is projected to be drafted in the middle to the end of the first round. The 6-foot-2 native of Oakland, Calif., led Weber State in scoring (24.5) and rebounds (5.0) as the Wildcats finished 25-7 and 14-2 in conference play.
Lillard was also the first player ever from Weber State and the Big Sky to earn All-American honors.
