Gonzaga senior Andrew Nembhard on Thursday announced that he will declare for the 2022 NBA draft and forgo his final season of collegiate eligibility.

Nembhard, who was named to the All-WCC first team, averaged 11.8 points, 5.8 assists, 3.4 rebounds and 1.6 steals in 32 games. He finished the season ranked 15th in the country in assists per game and seventh in assist-to-turnover ratio (2.97).

The 6-foot-5 guard is widely projected to be a second-round pick given his ability as a scorer and facilitator. He proved to be a strong shooter, converting 38.3% from 3-point range on seven attempts per game, and projects to be a viable backup point guard option for teams in the draft.

Nembhard will have the opportunity to improve his draft positioning by participating in private workouts with teams. He also figures to be a strong candidate to earn an invitation to compete in the draft combine or NBA G League Elite Camp next month.

The NBA draft will take place on June 23.
