U-M’s Franz Wagner Enters NBA Draft
Michigan sophomore guard Franz Wagner announced on Tuesday that he'll enter his name in the NBA Draft and forego his final two years of eligibility in Ann Arbor.
Franz (pictured) helped Michigan to a regular-season Big Ten championship and a berth in the Elite Eight before losing to UCLA. NBADraft.net projects Wagner at pick number 15 in the first round. He joins teammate Isaiah Livers in this year's Draft.
Franz's older brother Moritz (Moe) played at Michigan from 2015-2018, helping John Beilein's Wolverines to the Final Four in 2018 and a berth in the National Championship Game before they lost to Villanova. Moe was drafted by the Los Angeles Lakers and is now with the Orlando Magic.
Prospects have until the end of May to declare for the NBA Draft. The two-round NBA Draft is in July this year.
