Purdue big man Caleb Swanigan has opted to remain in the NBA Draft, he announced on his Twitter account.
Never thought I'd be sad to say that I am going to chase my reality in the NBA. Y'all got my love forever. #boilerup

Swanigan is considered a late-first or early-second round pick. Per NBC Sports:
He has a couple NBA-ready skills the good teams that typically pick late in the first round might covet, but thanks to trades, teams that didn’t win a playoff game this year hold most late first-round picks. They might pick someone with more upside than Swanigan.
Swanigan is 6-foot-9 with an old-school low post game. He is fairly slow but can score with either hand. He is considered a so-so defender, at best.
