Isaac Haas (born October 2, 1995) is an American professional basketball player for the Beijing Royal Fighters of the Chinese Basketball Association (CBA). He played college basketball for the Purdue Boilermakers.
High school career
Haas is the son of Rachel and Danny Haas and grew up in Hokes Bluff, Alabama. He attended Hokes Bluff High School and averaged 18.5 points and 11 rebounds as a junior. Haas committed to Purdue on November 18, 2013. Haas' primary reason for committing to Purdue was due to the university's ability to develop its tall players, saying "It's great exposure, and under Matt Painter, almost every 7-footer who went to Purdue went to the NBA." Haas, who originally committed to Wake Forest, was a four star and top 100 recruit.
Haas began his collegiate career entering games with much energy but tiring easily. He was a backup to A. J. Hammons for his first two years as he improved his conditioning. As a sophomore, Haas averaged 9.8 points and 3.8 rebounds per game.
As a junior, Haas was named a Big Ten Honorable Mention by the coaches and media. He averaged 12.6 points and 5.7 rebounds per game playing alongside Caleb Swanigan in the frontcourt. Haas and Vincent Edwards declared for the 2017 NBA Draft, but also did not sign with an agent. On May 16, 2017, Haas announced he would withdraw from the NBA Draft.
As a senior, Haas was named to the preseason watchlist of the Kareem Abdul-Jabbar award. He was named Big Ten player of the week on December 4, after scoring a career high 26 points, including the go-ahead bucket with 43 seconds left, versus Northwestern. He also had 21 points and four blocks to lead the Boilermakers to a win against Maryland. Haas scored 15 points in 16 minutes in Purdue's 82–67 win over Butler on December 16, but was limited by four fouls. He was named to the Third Team All-Big Ten. In the first round of the NCAA Tournament against Cal State Fullerton, Haas fractured his elbow and ended his career at Purdue. On May 17, during the 2018 NBA Draft Combine, it revealed that Haas was not only the tallest player at the event that year, being near 7'3" in shoes, but he was also the heaviest player at the event at 303 pounds.
