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.
Iowa State sophomore guard @TyHaliburton22 is entering the 2020 NBA draft, he tells @DraftExpress and me. Haliburton, the No. 7 prospect in ESPN’s Top 100, has emerged as one of the draft's elite point guard prospects. https://t.co/qeTajP4sy6— Adrian Wojnarowski (@wojespn) March 24, 2020
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.
