BATON ROUGE — Tremont Waters joined Naz Reid on Thursday night in declaring for the 2019 NBA Draft, per an announcement made via his Instagram account.

Waters and Reid leaving is somewhat expected, but Tremont’s departure hits a little bit different for Tiger fans because of the colossal impact he’s had on this program. Earlier this week, Waters picked up honorable mention on the Associated Press’ All-American Team and today he most likely called it a career at LSU.

“This experience has helped me create bonds and friendships that I will not forget,” said Waters in his statement.

We don’t usually get personal in our stories, but, thank you Tremont for righting an (almost) sunken ship. This program improved because of him.
