AUBURN — Wendell Green Jr.'s career on the Plains has come to an end. After two seasons leading the Tigers' offense, Green announced in a Twitter post on Sunday that he will enter the 2023 NBA Draft.

"It has been a great honor to play for Auburn University for the past few seasons. Thank you to the coaching and training staff for your guidance, advice and leadership. I would also like to thank my teammates and everyone who has played a role in helping me get to where I am today," Green said in his statement. " I would like to announce that I will be starting my professional career and declaring for the 2023 NBA Draft."

Green has eligibility remaining, and past Auburn players have maintained their eligibility while entering the draft process before returning to the Plains, but the final sentence in Green's statement appears to indicate that he is ready for the next chapter in his basketball career.

In his first year on the Plains as a sophomore, Green was primarily in the sixth man role, and he excelled in that spot with 12 points per game, 5.1 assists and 1.5 steals all while shooting 31.7% from 3-point land and 84.4% at the free throw line

Last season, Green took on the starting point guard role and did not disappoint, leading the team in assists (4.1) and steals (1.7) while also being the team's second-leading scorer with 13.7 points per game. His efforts leading the Tigers' offense earned him an All-SEC second-team selection along with newcomer Johni Broome.

With two players already in the transfer portal and Zep Jasper finishing his eligibility, Green is Auburn's fourth departure already. The Tigers now have one point guard left on the roster in Tre Donaldson and their only recruit in the 2023 class is four-star point guard Aden Holloway.
