Syracuse sophomore Jerami Grant has announced his intention to enter the 2014 NBA Draft.  

In a statement on the Syracuse Athletics website, Grant said, "After extensive discussions with my family and coaches, I have decided to pursue my dream of playing professional basketball and enter the 2014 NBA Draft. I am so thankful to coach Boeheim and the rest of the Orange coaching staff for guiding me throughout my college career, and am grateful to my teammates for two incredible seasons."

Grant started 20 of 32 games for the Orange in his second season. He averaged 12.1 points and 6.8 rebounds per game.

Grant is the second Syracuse underclassman to enter his name for the draft. Freshman Tyler Ennis announced last month his intention to enter the draft. Syracuse seniors C.J. Fair and Baye Moussa Keita are also departing the program, having completed their eligibility.
