Gonzaga’s Domantas Sabonis will declare for the NBA draft, reports ESPN’s Jeff Goodman.

According to the report, Sabonis will likely opt to sign with an agent, and thus, relinquish his NCAA eligibility.

In his sophomore season this year, Sabonis was put into the starting center role after Przemek Karnowski was sidelined by an injury. He averaged 17.6 points and 11.8 rebounds per game for the Zags​.

A first-team All-WCC selection in 2016, Sabonis was named a second-team All-WCC selection as a freshman last season, after averaging 9.7 points and 7.1 rebounds per contest.
