Tennessee junior Jarnell Stokes to announce he's entering NBA Draft

Tennessee junior Jarnell Stokes has scheduled a press conference on campus for Friday afternoon, at which point he's planning to announce that he'll enter the 2014 NBA Draft, multiple sources told CBSSports.com on Thursday night.

Stokes averaged 15.1 points and 10.6 rebounds this season while earning First Team All-SEC honors and leading the Vols to the Sweet 16. The 6-foot-8 forward is expected to be drafted late in the first round or somewhere in the second round. He'll likely be the first Tennessee player selected since Tobias Harris went 19th overall in the 2011 NBA Draft.

Josh Richardson will be UT's leading returning scorer next season.

The junior guard averaged 10.3 points and 2.9 rebounds this season.
