To nobody’s surprise, Lindell Wigginton has declared for the NBA Draft.

Technically, Lindell could return to college even if he hires an agent, but, as he said in the tweet, he plans on staying in the draft.
He’s not currently listed on many mock drafts, but he will likely get an NBA Summer League invite, where he will try to play his way into a two-way contract. If not, he would likely be scooped up pretty quickly by a team in Europe.
For his Iowa State career, he averaged 15.2 points, 3.9 rebounds, and 2.5 assists per game on 41.4% shooting from the field and 39.7% from three.
We wish Lindell the best, and look forward to watching him play basketball in pros, wherever that may be.
