Marcus Bagley will declare for the 2021 NBA Draft, but won't immediately hire an agent to leave open the possibility of returning to Arizona State.
Bagley is the No. 27 prospect in the ESPN 100 NBA draft rankings.
Bagley averaged 10.8 points and 6.2 rebounds in 29 minutes over 12 games while shooting 35% from beyond the arc, missing a large chunk of the season due to COVID-19 pauses and ankle and calf injuries.
"This season, like any other season, had its ups and downs, but I believe it was very beneficial for me and my game," Marcus Bagley said. "I think teams were able to see a little bit of my versatility on both ends of the floor. I stepped out and defended guards, but I also was down there being physical with the bigs in the paint. And on the offensive end I played out of my position at the 4, but I showed glimpses of what I look like at my natural position at the 2 or 3. I can't wait to show my entire game to teams."
