Scotty Pippen Jr. pleads for NBA draft, could return to Vanderbilt

Vanderbilt’s sophomore guard Scotty Pippen Jr. has declared for the 2021 NBA draft but will maintain his college eligibility, he announced on social media Saturday.

Pippen, the son of the Chicago Bulls Hall of Famer, led the Commodores in scoring (20.8 points per game), assists (4.9 points per game) and steals (1.8 points per game) last season.

“We all have dreams and I’m ready to chase mine,” Pippen wrote on Twitter.
