Marquette’s Olivier-Maxence Prosper keeps name in NBA draft

Forward Olivier-Maxence Prosper said Friday that he will forgo his remaining eligibility at Marquette and keep his name in the 2023 NBA Draft.He made his announcement on Instagram, then discussed his decision with ESPN.”After talking to my family, agents, and evaluating the feedback I’ve gotten after the draft combine and my pro day, I’ve decided to keep my name in,” Prosper, 20, told ESPN. “Teams say they are really intrigued by me and value my skill set and ability to impact the game on both ends. I’m ready to make that jump and go after this.”Prosper, who is listed at 6-foot-8 and 230 pounds, is considered a potential first-round pick in next month’s draft. The Montreal native averaged 12.5 points and 4.7 rebounds in 36 games (all starts) last season to help the Golden Eagles win the Big East regular-season and conference tournament championships.
