Louisville's Donovan Mitchell To Forgo Final 2 Seasons, Hire Agent

Louisville sophomore Donovan Mitchell is headed to the NBA.

Louisville sophomore Donovan Mitchell will sign with an agent and forgo his final two years of eligibility, according to a report from ESPN's Jeff Goodman. Mitchell, a 6-foot-3, 200-pound guard, averaged 15.6 points and 4.9 rebounds per contest this past season.

Mitchell confirmed the news on his Instagram account. He dropped a note to his fans in the process:

I want to thank Card Nation for a great two years... I want to thank all the coaches from Coach Arjay to Coach Smith and everyone on the Louisville staff for helping me become the man that I am today and of course my sister Jordan who I love more than anything ... with that being said I have decided to forego my junior season and stay in the 2017 NBA Draft #L1C4#BeHumble??

Mitchell was one of Louisville's most-improved players in the 2016-2017 season. At the moment, he's projected as a late first-round pick.
