Wieskamp averaged 14.8 points, 6.6 rebounds, and 1.7 assists per game during his junior season at Iowa before declaring for the NBA Draft for a second consecutive year on April 14.
The six-six swingman was among the best sharpshooters in college basketball, draining an astounding 46.2% of his 5.1 three-point attempts per game during the 2020-2021 season.
Wieskamp made the All-Big Ten Conference Second Team, was the second-leading scorer for a Hawkeyes team that finished eighth in the final AP Poll, and has drawn legitimate second-round interest from front offices.
Collegiate players who have applied for early entry have until July 7 to withdraw their name from consideration for the 2021 NBA Draft to retain their NCAA eligibility.
That deadline gives NBA hopefuls a chance to go through the draft combine (June 21-27) and watch the lottery (June 22) unfold before making a final decision on their basketball future.
The 2021 NBA Draft will take place on July 29 at 7 PM CST at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York. ESPN and ABC will televise the first round, and the second round will air exclusively on ESPN.
