Two more LSU players announce their intentions to go to the NBA. LSU's Javonte Smart and Emmit Williams delcared this week.

Smart made his announcement Monday, Williams on Sunday.

"I, along with my family, have decided to declare for the NBA draft to follow my dreams, while at the same time keeping my eligibility to return to school,"Smart said in a social media post. "Thanks for all the love and support that has been given to me during my college experience."

The 6-foot-4-inch guard scored 12.5 points for the Tigers this season. He is a sophomore with two years of NCAA eligibility remaining should he go un-drafted and return to school.

Meanwhile Williams will not return to Baton Rouge, regardless of draft outcome. Williams averaged 13.3 points-per-game, while averaging 6.6 rebounds-per, too.

These are the second and third underclassmen to declare this year joining Trendon Watford. LSU also loses senior Sklyar Mays.
