Jun 22, 2021 1:26 AM

Trey Murphy has hired an agent and will remain in the 2021 NBA Draft, he told Jonathan Givony of ESPN.

Murphy is currently ranked the No. 30 prospect in the ESPN 100.

"A lot of teams say they are very intrigued with me. Different teams seem to be targeting me with their first-round pick. The range is wide, so now we need to figure out which teams are the best fit for me and my development. The goal isn't just to get drafted at a certain number, but to play 15 years in the NBA," said Murphy.

Murphy ranked as the most efficient half-court scorer in the country among players likely to get drafted, including making 50% of his open standstill 3-pointers this season.

International Prospect Igor Milicic Commits To Virginia

May 1, 2021 5:06 PM

Igor Milicic, a top-ranked European prospect, announced his commitment to Virginia.

"My role will be to play and practice hard and Coach Bennett will find a role for me to help the team be successful. I'm tall for my position with a long wingspan and that should be a great fit for his defensive philosophy.

"Offensively they use many off-ball screens which fits my versatility. I feel good getting jump shots or driving opportunities off flare screens, pin-downs or staggers. The plan is to get better each day and hopefully over time I'll become a key piece of the program. I am going to work all summer to be 100% prepared from day one," said Milicic about Virginia.

The 18-year-old Milicic mostly played in Germany's third division, averaging 13.3 points and 4.9 rebounds on the season.

Milicic has already made his debut for the Polish senior national team.
