The first domino has fallen, as Domantas Sabonis has said he will declare for the draft and sign and agent, Jeff Goodman with ESPN reported early this morning.

The theme has always been to strike while the iron is hot, and that is exactly what Domas is doing. He averaged 17.6 points and 11.8 rebounds per game for the Zags, and did it all on the big stage as well, outplaying Jakob Poeltlt to grab all the attention.
It was a huge leap for Domantas this year, who was thrust into the starting center role after Przemek Karnowski went down with his injury. Domas was able to be the focal point of the post offense, and will go down in history as one of the greatest Zag big men we've had in a mere two years.
Right now, his draft stock is sitting around the mid-teens, but there is the potential to turn some heads at the draft combine. There is a lot of potential here.
There will be plenty more to come on this. For now, good luck Domas.
