Canadian Zach Edey declares for NBA Draft while maintaining college eligibility

Purdue Boilermakers centre Zach Edey has announced his intention to declare for the 2023 NBA Draft while still maintaining his college eligibility. The seven-foot-four big man was named The Associated Press men’s college basketball player of the year, receiving all but one vote from a 58-person media panel. He was also named a unanimous AP All-American and the Big Ten player of the year. Edey finished sixth nationally in scoring (22.3), second in rebounding (12.8), and first in double-doubles (26) while leading Purdue to its first outright Big Ten regular-season title since 2017. He shot 62 per cent from the floor and averaged 2.1 blocked shots per game. Edey is the first player since Navy’s David Robinson in 1985-86 to have at least 750 points, 450 rebounds, and 50 blocked shots in a season. The draft will take place on June 22.
