Shareef O’Neal eligible for 2022 NBA Draft

·1 min read

After some confusion, Shareef O'Neal will remain in the 2022 NBA Draft.

He had previously been seen on a list of withdrawals, but it now appears that was a mistake, according to a report from The Athletic’s Shams Charania.

It’s hard to pinpoint where O’Neal will be selected in this draft or if he even will be at all. A lot of it will depend on how teams view his health and the judgments they were able to make despite him missing much of his career due to a heart condition.

O’Neal spent a year at UCLA before transferring to LSU. After the Tigers and coach Will Wade parted ways, O’Neal entered the transfer portal before ultimately deciding to declare for the draft.

O’Neal averaged 2.9 points and 1.4 rebounds per game with LSU last season, but he played less than 10 minutes per contest.

He is a former four-star recruit, and it will be interesting to see what NBA club takes a gamble as the is talent there.
