Johnson has added his name
into consideration for the 2019 NBA Draft but will retain the ability to return to school.
The decision will give the NC State point guard the ability to talk to NBA scouts about his game while being able to return to school, provided he pulls out by the May 29 deadline. Last season with the Wolfpack, the junior was second on the team with 12.6 points per game and led the squad with 4.2 assists, while also showing off some range by connecting on 42 percent of his shots from deep. It seems the Ohio native is mostly looking for feedback and will pull out by the deadline to play his final year of eligibility, but the option to go pro will be there if he wants it.
