Leonard Miller told Jonathan Givony of ESPN that he will withdraw from the 2022 NBA draft and sign with the NBA G League Ignite.

Miller, who will turn 19 in November, previously announced last month that he would forgo his collegiate eligibility and either remain in the draft or sign with the Ignite next season. He had received college interest from Arizona and Kentucky, among other programs.

The 6-foot-10 forward was ruled eligible for the draft after completing a postgraduate year at Fort Erie International Academy. He participated in the combine last month in Chicago, Illinois, averaging 7.5 points, 6.5 rebounds and 1.5 assists in two scrimmage games.

He will join Scoot Henderson on the Ignite next season. They are the only known players signed to the roster at this time with the likes of Dyson Daniels, Michael Foster Jr. and Jaden Hardy leaving the program for the draft this year.
