Alabama guard Tevin Mack is expected to explore the 2019 NBA draft, The Tuscaloosa News has learned. Mack completed his redshirt junior season in 2018-19 at Alabama and has one year of eligibility left.
Mack is not expected to hire an agent, though players are now permitted to hire certified agents and enter the draft as long as they request an “evaluation from the NBA Undergraduate Advisory Committee.” The player must end the relationship with the agent if they choose to return to school.
Mack played in all 34 games for Alabama in 2018-19 and started 24, averaging 20.6 minutes per game. He averaged nine points per game, good for fourth on the team while shooting 41.7 percent from the field and 33.3 percent from 3-point range. He also averaged 3.3 rebounds per game.
Mack sat out the 2017-18 season after transferring from Texas. He averaged 14.8 points and 4.8 rebounds per game as a sophomore for the Longhorns in 2016-17.
Fellow seniors Daniel Giddens and Dazon Ingram both have one season of eligibility remaining at Alabama but both chose to put their names in the NCAA’s transfer portal to explore other options after the end of the season.
