Gonzaga men’s basketball star Drew Timme has declared for the 2022 NBA Draft.
“The dream has always been to play professionally,” Timme said in a Twitter post.
“After lots of thought and discussion, I will be putting my name in the NBA draft.”
Timme, 21, is listed at 6-10, 235 pounds by the Gonzaga men’s basketball website.
In three years at Gonzaga, Timme averaged 15.7 points, 6.4 rebounds, and 2.1 assists on 62%/29%/67% shooting splits.
But despite Timme’s impressive numbers, draft experts have expressed skepticism about how his game will translate to the next level.
As of now, it seems likely Timme will either be selected in the second round or not selected at all.
Still, Timme’s absence will leave a major hole in Gonzaga’s historically impressive men’s basketball program.
