Eugene, Ore. -- Oregon freshman, Louis King, has hired an agent and submitted official paperwork. On Friday, he solidified himself eligible for the 2019 NBA Draft. King went to Twitter to say “as grateful as I am for the journey that has brought me to this point, my family and I have decided the time has come for me to pursue my next dream.” He thanked friends, family, teammates, coaches, and the University of Oregon. “This is the one that has driven me since I first started playing basketball as a young kid, and that is to pursue the opportunity to play at the highest level, in the NBA.”

The 6-foot-8 forward was named to the All-Pac-12 freshman team and was a conference honorable mention. He averaged 13 points, 5.3 rebounds, and shot 38.6% from the paint. Louis helped the Ducks to a Pac-12 tournament title and a Sweet 16 finish in the NCAA tournament when they lost to eventual champion, Virginia. The New Jersey native is projected to be taken in the first round of the NBA Draft. According to Sports Illustrated, they have Louis going in the No. 51 spot.

The NBA Draft will happen on Thursday, June 20th.
