Jett Howard To Declare For 2023 NBA Draft
Jett Howard will declare for the 2023 NBA draft, leaving Michigan after his freshman season.
Howard is the No. 16 prospect in ESPN’s draft rankings.
“This was a great learning year for me,” Howard told ESPN. “It’s what I needed. It taught me how to play within a pro-style offense and be effective, to get out of my comfort zone, and play with other good players.”
Howard says he relished playing for his father, Juwan Howard, a former NBA All-Star and two-time NBA champion who won Big Ten Coach of the Year in 2021 after taking Michigan to the Elite Eight.
“Playing for my dad was a beautiful experience,” Howard said. “It was a little rough at first, as he wants things done a certain way, but overall it was easy playing in his offense. He’s a fun person to be around on a day-to-day basis.”
