Not surprisingly, Michigan State's Miles Bridges is heading to the NBA Draft.
Bridges, a projected lottery pick, made the news official this morning. He'll be signing with Rich Paul, who is the agent for LeBron James, John Wall, Ben Simmons and others.
As a sophomore, Bridges averaged 17.1 points, 7.0 rebounds and 2.7 assists per game. He helped MSU win the Big Ten regular season championship.
"God couldn't have placed me in a better place these last two years," Bridges wrote on Twitter. "I wanna thank Coach Izzo and the rest of the coaching staff for giving a skinny kid from Flint a chance to play at such a legendary program."
Here is his fully statement:
The latest NBADraft.net mock draft has Bridges going No. 13 overall to the Los Angeles Clippers.
Basically, Bridges will be a back-end lottery pick. He's expected to help a team at the next level with his outside shooting, athleticism and versatility.
