2019 NBA Draft

#27
According to NBCsports...
69% of 2nd Rd NBA Draft picks in the last 6 drafts landed at least a 1 year guaranteed NBA contract.

"Of the 72 college players selected between 31st and 45th during the last six drafts, 65 of them — or a whopping 90.3 percent — received a guaranteed contract from an NBA team. Just two of the college players that were taken in the top 40 since 2012 did not receive a guaranteed contract during their first season as a pro..."

Many believe underclassmen only leaving for NBA w/ 1st Rd guarantee is antiquated.
Lots of fallacies here. As noted above, are you getting a second round guarantee?

Also, I'd love to know how the agents work. let's say I get a 3 year, 3 million total deal with one year, 1 million guaranteed. How much does the agent get year 1?

I do think though that guys are smart if they leave after their junior year in many instances. If you're going to be earning significant dollars you might as well do it sooner rather than later. Your value probably doesn't go up much after year 3 in most instances

I'm not really sure what you are trying to say. Most of the time, I imagine you are correct. Probably, and in most instances are not really how people make their own decisions. I don't know anyone who lives their lives based on probabilities. How they develop their sn. year is unique. What team might draft them, and the team's needs are unique. So on, and so on.

I would say its 98% chance Wieskamp is back. Just taking advantage of getting feedback on what he needs to work on. The Moss stuff is interesting. He has never seemed to be a Fran guy to me. Fran is quick to take him out of the line up for little things. Who knows though.

But from what I am hearing, the older McCaffery will probably only play 1 more year of hoops. He is a really good baseball player who has a much better chance to be drafted if he focuses on that, He will get to play 1 year with his brother and then be done with hoops.

Today is also the deadline to request evaluation from NBA Undergraduate Advisory Committee, which then allows you to hire an agent under the new agent rule as discussed above. I don't know if these evaluation requests are typically made public, but I would expect to see a decent amount of names declaring today.
So as far as we know, Ayo did not do this? If so, I'm surprised.

I think I'd read somewhere that agents can get up to 5% if they negotiate the deal. If it's just handling the legal aspects, it can be considerably less or a flat fee. I'm sure it varies quite a bit.

I've been Watching the Philadelphia/Brooklyn game II. I just do NOT understand how anyone thinks Ayo is ready to join THAT GAME.
He doesn't have the shot, he doesn't have the physicality, he doesn't bang as hard, he cannot set or get past those hard moving screens. I am not saying he won't get there, but he is NOT there.

PLUS, he doesn't have Jarrett Allen's hair.
