The Huskies’ freshman Isaiah Stewart announced that he is heading to the 2020 NBA draft per ESPN. The young prospect, who is projected as a late first round pick, signed with RocNation, which will represent him in the start of his professional career.
Furthermore, he was one of the best high-school recruit, before attending the University of Washington.
“I take a lot of pride in winning national player of the year in high school. The list of guys that won that award is impressive,” Stewart noted through ESPN.
“I feel like I am someone who can play in an NBA game tomorrow physically. With all the uncertainty about whether there will be a summer league or what type of offseason the NBA might have, it’s more important than ever to have a long body of work teams can look at. People already know my reputation and what my character is as a person. I’ll continue to show NBA teams that over video conferences, Skype, FaceTime or whatever it might be.”
The 6-foot-9, 250-pound Stewart, who has a 7-foot-4 wingspan, averaged 17 points, 8.8 rebounds and 2.1 blocks per game for the Huskies in his freshman year, shooting 59% from 2-point range and 77% from the free-throw line.
