Lon Kruger on Trae Young leaving for the NBA Draft: ‘Logical, smart thing to do’

Trae Young’s first and only year with the Oklahoma Sooners was a whirlwind of emotions.

Oklahoma head coach Lon Kruger is definitely okay with his star point guard leaving for the NBA, according to Guerin Emig of the Tulsa World.

Kruger said that Young leaving for the NBA was the “logical, smart thing to do.”

The Sooners climbed as high as No. 4 in the nation at one point, but by the end of the regular season, nearly didn’t make the NCAA Tournament. They were bounced in the first round of March Madness by Rhode Island in overtime, 83-78.

Young scored 28 points in the loss.

He also led the nation in scoring, averaging 27.4 points per game and 8.7 assists per game. Young’s play electrified the nation at Oklahoma, and while the reaction to his departure was mixed, there’s no question that it was the likely outcome.
