Montreal, Quebec's Quincy Guerrier will be testing the NBA Draft waters.
IRVING: NBA Draft 2021 Big Board
On Friday evening, the 21-year-old took to Twitter to share an announcement that he will take part in the draft process and enter the NCAA transfer portal, meaning he will not be hiring an agent in order to maintain his college eligibility.

"I have spent time reflecting on what's next for me and my career, and I have decided to enter the transfer portal while still testing the waters of the NBA Draft," Guerrier wrote.
As a sophomore at Syracuse, Guerrier posted averages of 13.7 points and 8.4 rebounds while starting in all 28 games that he appeared in during the 2020-21 NBA season. The 6-foot-7 forward posted eight double-doubles this past season, including a 27-point 11-rebound performance in a win over Buffalo on December 19.
Guerrier joins South Carolina's AJ Lawson as the second Canadian to enter the 2021 NBA Draft process, though Lawson has hired an agent to forgo the remainder of his college eligibility. Should he remain in the process, Guerrier looks to join Khem Birch, Chris Boucher, Luguentz Dort and Karim Mané as yet another Montrealer to join the NBA.
Following a recent Raptors win, Birch mentioned Guerrier as a Montrealer to keep an eye on moving forward.
Per the NBA's key dates for the 2020-21 season, Guerrier has until July 19 to withdraw his name from the NBA Draft. The 2021 NBA Draft takes place on July 29, 2021.
