Baylor freshman forward and projected first-round pick Yves Missi declared for the NBA draft on Wednesday and announced he has hired an agent.

Missi is ESPN's No. 20 ranked prospect in June's draft.

"I intend to enter the 2024 NBA draft and I am looking forward to the process," Missi told ESPN. "I'm hiring Wasserman as an agency and I am all in!"

The 6-foot-10 Missi earned selection to the Big 12 All-Defensive and All-Freshman teams.

He averaged 10.7 points, 5.6 rebounds and 1.5 blocks per game in 34 games (32 starts) for the Bears. He led the Big 12 with 63 dunks, shooting 61.4 percent from the floor.
