Timme declares for 2022 NBA Draft
"One of the best decisions I have ever made was to come to Spokane and Gonzaga University to play basketball in front of Zag Nation," Timme wrote.
"I have had the privilege to play with and be supported by the best coaches, teammates, fans, friends, and family anyone could ask for. I have forever been changed into a better person and basketball player because of that opportunity!"
NCAA-certified agents are representing Timme, his father told The Spokesman-Review's Jim Meehan, meaning he still has the option to return to Gonzaga for his senior season. Timme would have to remove himself from the draft before June 1, which marks the early entry withdrawal deadline for underclassmen.
The 21-year-old is coming off a strong junior season with the Zags in which he earned WCC Player of the Year honors. He averaged 18.4 points on 58.6% shooting, 6.8 rebounds, and 2.8 assists in 28 minutes per game. Timme also earned a First-Team All-WCC spot and was a finalist for the Wooden Award.
Timme helped Gonzaga reach the national championship game in 2021, and owns averages of 15.7 points on 61.9% shooting, 6.4 rebounds, and 2.1 assists across 97 career games with the Bulldogs.
