William McDowell-White Declares For NBA Draft 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Wed Apr 17, 2019 5:58 am

William McDowell-White declared for the NBA draft, further highlighting the basketball talent pipeline from Australia. 

McDowell-White came into the season ranked in ESPN's top 100, but missed a significant portion of time with a foot injury. He averaged 13 points and 7 assists in Germany's second division last year.

13 Australians saw NBA minutes this season, tied with Canada for the most international players in the NBA.

"Australians all play with a chip on their shoulders, and a certain amount of toughness. Being the next one drafted would be a great honor. Obviously, we have had stars like Ben Simmons get drafted, but even the less-heralded Aussies -- guys like Joe InglesJonah BoldenPatty Mills and Aron Baynes -- have had great success in the NBA and are playing integral roles on playoff teams," said McDowell-White.
