Santi Aldama announced his intention to enter the NBA draft but will maintain his NCAA eligibility retaining the option to return to Loyola Maryland.

Aldama, 20, in his sophomore season with the Greyhounds put up 21.2 points, 10.1 rebounds, 2.3 assists, 1.7 blocks, and 1.0 steals per contest.

“I think NBA teams learned that about me, watching me every night doing all the different things I can do with my versatility. How I’ve gotten bigger and stronger and more consistent with my shot,” the Spanish prospect told ESPN.

“The main thing for me to stay in the NBA draft is feeling that teams have real interest in me and would like me to be a part of their team,” he added, “That’s the key for me to stay in the draft.”
