Basketball’s Dang Adel announced he will withdraw his name from the 2017 NBA Draft. The junior-to-be averaged 12.1 points and 4.5 rebounds last season.

Adel’s return is huge for U of L, as the Cards lost Donovan Mitchell and Jaylen Johnson to the draft already.

Adel said he wants to be a lottery pick, which led to his return. He worked out with several teams, including the LA Lakers and the Milwaukee Bucks.

The 6-foot-7 wing is expected to lead the team with senior Quentin Snider.
