Gonzaga junior Rui Hachimura has declared for the 2019 NBA Draft and will hire an agent, the forward announced on Monday through a school release.

"The last three years at Gonzaga have been a dream come true, and now I'd like to pursue my next dream of playing in the NBA," Hachimura said. "This was a significant decision for my family and myself. I just want to thank everyone at Gonzaga, especially the coaching staff and all of my teammates who went to battle with me and are my brothers for life."

Hachimura enjoyed his best season at the collegiate level in 2018-19, averaging 19.7 points and 6.5 rebounds while being named a consensus first-team All-American.

The 6-foot-8 star also helped lead Gonzaga to the Elite Eight in the NCAA Tournament before falling to Texas Tech.
