Canadians Ignas Brazdeikis and Mfiondu Kabengele are ready to take the next step in their basketball careers.
Brazdeikis told ESPN on Tuesday that he intends to hire an agent and enter the NBA Draft set for June 20 in Brooklyn, foregoing his remaining three years of NCAA eligibility.
Brazdeikis impressed in his only season with the Michigan Wolverines, averaging 14.8 points per game on 46.2 per cent shooting. He also averaged 5.4 rebounds and shot 39 per cent from three.
Fellow Wolverines Charles Matthews and Jordan Poole also announced their intention to declare for the draft on Tuesday.
"Charles, Jordan and Iggy have all decided to take the next steps in pursuing their dreams of playing in the NBA," Michigan coach John Beilein told the Detroit Free Press. "The new process is a unique experience and one that my staff and I will assist in every way we can. We want each of them to utilize this opportunity to get more feedback so they can make the best decision possible for themselves and their families."
"All three are remarkable young men with amazing futures in front of them."
Michigan finished the season at 30-7 and placed third in the Big Ten. They were bounced in the Sweet 16 by eventual runner-up Texas Tech.
Meanwhile, Kabengele made his announcement on Twitter Tuesday.
"It's been an incredible journey and I have learned so much along the way, and I want to thank everyone who has been a part of it. From the coaching staff and my teammates helping me be the player and person I am today, I thank you. With that being said, I want to pursue my passion and declare for the 2019 NBA Draft and I will sign with an agent. Thank you Nole Nation."
The Florida State product averaged 13.2 points per game as a sophomore on 50.2 per cent shooting. He is a native of Burlington, Ont.
Brazdeikis and Kabengele join Virginia Tech's Nickeil Alexander-Walker, Vanderbilt's Simisola Shittu and Iowa State's Lindell Wigginton as fellow Canadians to declare for the NBA Draft.
