Gonzaga’s Rasir Bolton declares for the NBA draft

SPOKANE, Wash. — Another Zag is entering the NBA draft.

Rasir Bolton announced his decision in a tweet Wednesday morning.

“To Zag Nation and the Spokane Community, I love you guys! I appreciate the love and support you all had for us as a team and for welcoming me with open arms, I am forever grateful…I hope I made a difference,” he said.

Bolton has been instrumental for the Zags, averaging 11.2 points per game and leading the team with 64 three-pointers.


He also been instrumental in helping the community off the court. During his year in Spokane, Bolton frequently offered up his time to help others.

In December, he passed out hand warmers and bus passes to people in need. He also teamed up with the Spokane Quaranteam to fill backpacks for those experiencing homelessness.

Bolton is one of several Zags entering the draft. Drew Timme, Andrew Nembhard, Chet Holmgren and Julian Strawther have all done the same.
