Tyrese Haliburton Declares for 2020 NBA Draft

One of the most likable Cyclones ever is going off to be a top ten pick.

NCAA Basketball: Oklahoma at Iowa State Reese Strickland-USA TODAY Sports

Sophomore point guard Tyrese Haliburton declares for the 2020 NBA Draft.

Haliburton was the star for Iowa State this season and was averaging 15.2 points per game, 6.5 assists and 5.9 rebounds before breaking his wrist on Feb. 8 against Kansas State.

He was also one of the most efficient guards in the country, shooting 50.4% from the field, 41.9% from three and 82.2% from the line.

The three-star guard from Oshkosh flew under the radar, but his 6’5, 175 lb frame combined with his intangibles makes him one of the best prospects in the 2020 class.

ESPN has him ranked as the 7th best player and as a projected lottery pick. A quick reminder that as long as he doesn’t sign an agent, he’s still free to return to Iowa State if he chooses to do so.

Thank you, Tyrese.
