Sussex native Patrick Baldwin Jr. has declared for the NBA Draft
MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- Sussex native Patrick Baldwin Jr. has declared for the NBA Draft.
Baldwin Jr. made the announcement Friday with a social media post thanking his family and teammates for support during his career.
Baldwin Jr. was a Top-10 recruit in the 2022 class, and chose to play at UW-Milwaukee to play under his father Pat Baldwin.
The season was filled with injuries and Baldwin Jr. was only able to play in 11 of 32 games. The 6-9 freshman averaged 12.1 points per game on 34% FG shooting and 27% from 3-point range with 5.8 rebounds.
"As a kid, I always dreamt of taking the court alongside my father. While this season didn't end how we expected it to, I'm so happy that I got to play the game that I love under the man who has always been there for me and taught me so much," said Baldwin Jr. in his social media post.
UWM fired Pat Baldwin at the end of a 10-22 season.
The NBA Combine will be held at the United Center in Chicago May 16-22. The NBA Draft is June 23 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY.
