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 with the Port of the Antwerp Giants in Belgium. He shot 37.9% from the field, including 33.5% from 3-point range.
The 6-foot-11 forward arrived in the United States this month and has conducted workouts with the Oklahoma City Thunder and Memphis Grizzlies. He also was among the prospects that participated in a four-day workout event in front of teams in Minnesota last week.
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.
