Gonzaga’s Zach Norvell Jr. to test NBA waters
SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) — Gonzaga sophomore guard Zach Norvell Jr. will test the NBA waters.
The school said Saturday Norvell will submit his name for the NBA draft, but could return to school.
Under new NCAA rules, college players can retain the services of an agent during the evaluation process, but must end the relationship and withdraw from the draft by May 29.
A 6-foot-5 guard from Chicago, Norvell started 36 of 37 games in 2019, averaging 14.9 points and 3.1 assists. He led the West Coast Conference with 97 3-pointers and 37 percent from the arc.
Norvell averaged 12.7 points as a redshirt freshman in 2017-18. The Zags have reached the Elite Eight and Sweet 16 of the NCAA Tournament when Norvell has played.
