French point guard Theo Maledon announced that he will enter the 2020 NBA Draft.

The 18-year-old Maledon is ranked as the No. 15 prospect in the ESPN Top 100.

"Before COVID-19 stopped basketball, I was looking forward to finishing the Euroleague season and hopefully winning the LNB Championship. Normally, the championship would have run until the second week of June so I would not have much time to train in the U.S. before the draft. Now the landscape has changed but I have to wait like everyone else to see when and what we are able to do," said Maledon on how his preparation has been affected by the pandemic.

Maledon is averaging 7.1 points and 2.3 assists in 17 minutes for ASVEL.
