Jett Howard To Declare For 2023 NBA Draft

Mar 23, 2023 9:30 PM

Jett Howard will declare for the 2023 NBA draft, leaving Michigan after his freshman season.

Howard is the No. 16 prospect in ESPN's draft rankings.

"This was a great learning year for me," Howard told ESPN. "It's what I needed. It taught me how to play within a pro-style offense and be effective, to get out of my comfort zone, and play with other good players."

Howard says he relished playing for his father, Juwan Howard, a former NBA All-Star and two-time NBA champion who won Big Ten Coach of the Year in 2021 after taking Michigan to the Elite Eight.

"Playing for my dad was a beautiful experience," Howard said. "It was a little rough at first, as he wants things done a certain way, but overall it was easy playing in his offense. He's a fun person to be around on a day-to-day basis."

NBA Teams Strongly Considering Brandon Miller Over Scoot Henderson At No. 2

Mar 15, 2023 11:57 AM

Brandon Miller has emerged with the potential to go No. 2 in the 2023 NBA draft ahead of Scoot Henderson. Miller is a 6'9 multi-dimensional wing while Henderson is a 6'2 super athletic combo guard. 

"NBA teams are telling me he is firmly in the mix at No. 2," said ESPN's Jonathan Givony on NBA Today.

"I talked to a veteran executive just in the last week and he told me he currently has Brandon Miller No. 2 on his board," said Brian Windhorst on his podcast on Wednesday. "So it is a thing."

Sam Veccine of The Athletic shared a similar sentiment this week as well.

"It is not a foregone conclusion that Henderson will be picked at No. 2. I’ve talked with a number of lead front-office executives as well as high-level scouts who either think the margin between Miller and Henderson is razor thin or just have Miller ahead at this point," wrote Veccine.

While the No. 2 pick is a subject of debate, Victor Wembanyama remains the consensus option at No. 1.
