UNLV freshman center Stephen Zimmerman plans to enter this year’s draft, Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical reports. Zimmerman, 19, plans to sign with an agent, according to Wojnarowski. That means he won’t be able to withdraw and return to college basketball before the NCAA’s May 25th deadline, as Wojnarowski notes.
The 7’0″ Zimmerman has the potential to get selected near the top half of the draft, per Wojnarowski, because he is a mobile big man and is adept at blocking shots. His 2.0 blocks per contest were second in the Mountain West Conference this year.
