Leonard Miller To Withdraw From Draft; Sign With G League Ignite

Jun 13, 2022 1:03 PM

Leonard Miller, who was once a five-star recruit from Canada, will withdraw from the 2022 NBA Draft as an Early Entry Candidate. Miller will instead sign with the G League Ignite for the 2022-23 season.

Miller is expected to be at least a top-20 prospect in the 2023 NBA Draft. He can improve that stock with a big season with the Ignite. Miller was projected as a second-round pick in the 2022 Draft.

Miller is an 18-year-old 6-foot-11 forward/center. He has good offensive skills and developing instincts. The hope is that he'll use a year of G League experience to propel himself well into the first round of next year's draft.

In his first season with the Ignite, Henderson averaged 14 points in 24.5 minutes per game. He also grabbed 4.9 rebounds, dished out 3.6 assists and snagged 1.6 steals per game.
