Gonzaga star Jalen Suggs has made his decision on the NBA Draft. The surefire lottery pick has unsurprisingly decided he’ll forego the rest of his college career, and enter the draft.

Suggs took to his Twitter account to auction off the NFT of his insane half-court shout to beat UCLA in the Final Four last season.
This moment was just the beginning. As I officially turn pro, The Shot is now a 1-of-1 NFT, accompanied by my signed, game-worn shoes from the semis. The auction is live now on @opensea: https://t.co/YAQrBdnPVH pic.twitter.com/lHGzZUO1bc

While Jalen Suggs’ decision to leave Gonzaga might sting for some fans, the Zags were still able to get some good news today. Top prospect Chet Holmgren has decided that he’ll be taking his talents to Gonzaga next season.

Holmgren will hope to fill the void left by Jalen Suggs and Corey Krispert (who just wrapped up his senior year at Gonzaga).
Even with the loss of Jalen Suggs and Krispert, Gonzaga should be fine going forward. Mark Few’s bunch always finds a way to be relevant come time for the NCAA Tournament.
