Nigel Williams-Goss To Enter Draft, Hire Agent

Gonzaga guard Nigel Williams-Goss has declared for the NBA draft, the school announced on Tuesday night in a press release. Williams-Goss won’t just be testing the draft waters — according to Chris Haynes of ESPN.com (via Twitter), the 22-year-old redshirt junior will forgo his remaining NCAA eligibility by signing with agent Greg Lawrence of Wasserman.

The 2016/17 season was Williams-Goss’s first with Gonzaga, as he was forced to sit out in 2015/16 after coming over from Washington two years ago. In a statement posted on his Instagram account, he called transferring to Gonzaga “the best decision I ever made,” and thanked Zags fans for their support.

“After many discussions with my coaches and family, I have decided to enter the 2017 NBA Draft with representation,” Williams-Goss wrote. “I am 100% confident in this decision and believe I am prepared both mentally and physically to take this step in my career and my life.”

Williams-Goss doesn’t show up on Chad Ford’s top-100 list on ESPN.com, but he comes in at No. 61 on Jonathan Givony’s big board at DraftExpress. The 6’3″ guard is coming off a season in which he averaged 16.8 PPG, 6.0 RPG, 4.7 APG, and 1.7 SPG while helping lead Gonzaga to an appearance in the national championship game.
