Alabama G Kira Lewis to remain in draft, hire an agent

Alabama guard Kira Lewis said Tuesday he will remain in the 2020 NBA Draft and hire an agent.

“For as long as I can remember, playing in the NBA has always been a dream of mine,” he said in a video posted to Twitter. “… After numerous discussions with my family, I have decided to forego my remaining college eligibility and remain in the draft by hiring an agent. Roll Tide and God bless you all.”

Recent mock drafts project Lewis to be selected in the bottom third of the first round.

As a sophomore in 2019-20, Lewis was a first-team All-SEC selection and averaged 18.5 points, 5.2 assists, 4.8 rebounds and 1.8 steals in 31 games for the Crimson Tide.

Over two seasons, he averaged 15.9 points, 4.0 assists and 3.6 rebounds while starting all 65 games.
