International prospect Vrenz Bleijenbergh, who last played for the Port of the Antwerp Giants in Belgium, will be reportedly keeping his name in the NBA draft, according to Jonathan Givony of ESPN.

Bleijenbergh was named a Pro Basketball League Rising Star after averaging 9.5 points, 4.8 rebounds, 3.5 assists and 1.3 steals across 41 games in league play and the Eurocup. He shot 37.9% from the field, including 33.5% from 3-point range.

The 6-foot-10 forward arrived in the United States last week and has conducted workouts with the Oklahoma City Thunder and Memphis Grizzlies. He will also be among the prospects that will visit Minnesota on Thursday for a four-day workout event in front of teams.

Bleijenbergh is most commonly projected to be a second-round pick. He has been highly touted for his court vision and ability as a passer. He has good athleticism for his size and can often beat his defender off the dribble and attack closeouts.

The NBA draft is scheduled to take place on Thursday, July 29.
