Florida State sophomore Baba Miller to enter transfer portal, test NBA draft

Florida State sophomore Baba Miller will reportedly enter the transfer portal, while opting to test the 2024 NBA draft, according to Jonathan Givony of ESPN.

Miller averaged 7.6 points, 4.9 rebounds, 1.4 assists and 1.1 blocked shots on 44.9% shooting from the field in 33 games this season. He scored in double figures eight times, including a season-high 14 points, three rebounds and three blocks on Jan. 9.

He finished 10th in the ACC in total blocks (37).

Miller now projects to be one of the top players in the transfer portal and will likely have several programs interested in landing him. He will also test the pre-draft process and have the opportunity to meet and work out with prospective teams.

Miller opted to return to Florida State after an up-and-down freshman campaign. He was limited to just 15 games with the Seminoles due to an offseason injury and a suspension stemming from a rules infraction committed in 2020.

He was previously highly recruited as a four-star prospect and ultimately chose the Seminoles over Gonzaga. Miller, standing at 6 feet, 11 inches, is highly touted for his versatility and athleticism, and ability to defend with his 7-foot-2 wingspan.

Miller previously represented Spain in the 2023 FIBA U19 Basketball World Cup. He averaged 9.4 points, six rebounds and 1.3 assists in seven games, helping Spain win the gold medal.
