WACO, Texas — Baylor guard MaCio Teague announced on Twitter he has declared for the NBA draft but is still keeping his options open for a possible return to the Bears.

"After much consideration and conversation with my family, I have decided to declare for the NBA Draft," Teague said in his post. "Thanks to my family and those supporting me along this journey."

Teague transferred to Baylor from UNC-Asheville in 2018. After sitting out the 2018-19 season, Teague became a starter for the Bears in the 2019-20 season, averaging 13.9 points per game.

Teague can still return to Baylor if he is not drafted. In 2018, The NCAA changed its rules regarding eligibility to allow draft-eligible players to announce they are returning to school up to 10 days after the NBA draft.

The draft is scheduled for June 25, but it could be pushed back due to the coronavirus outbreak.
