Howard was a candidate to be drafted on Wednesday night, but ultimately wasn’t one of the 60 players selected. He ranked seventh on ESPN’s list of this year’s undrafted prospects.
Howard, who spent four years playing college ball, averaged a career-best 27.8 PPG in his senior season in 2019/20. The 5’11” scorer is an impressive volume shooter, having knocked down 46.3% of 7.9 three-pointers per game over the course of 128 NCAA games.
Bol Bol‘s two-way deal with the Nuggets spans two seasons, so if the team doesn’t promote Bol to the 15-man roster, he and Howard figure to occupy Denver’s two-way slots in 2020/21.
