The season is over for Juancho Hernangómez. A bittersweet one, as he has been named ACB’s best young player while his team, Estudiantes, has been relegated to the lower division.
Hernangómez, now a free agent, must make several decisiones regarding his future. He’s already declared for the NBA draft, but as an international prospect he can remove his name before the June 13th deadline. “The NBA is the dream for every basketball player but I have to choose whatever is best for my career”, he said to this website.
“I need to study my options. I think it will a last-minute decision. But if I finally stay in the draft, I’d love to attend the ceremony (at Barclays Center)”, he added.
Hernangómez is projected as a late first-round pick, according to draftexpress.net.
