Well, if this is true, better buckle up for a wild couple of months.
DJ Carton for one spot. Not sure of what 4s are out there now that Scott signed.so assuming Kofi comes back and ayo leaves, which is most likely, who would be the targets that we would look at as the last two spots for the team? Have to think a 4 and maybe a shooter?
CHOOSING to play for Pitino. Amazing. Good luck.Western Michigan transfer Brandon Johnson commits to Minnesota
"I picked Minnesota because I think it's the best opportunity for me especially with them being in the Big Ten conference," Johnson said. "I think it's the best way to accomplish my dreams after this year."
Seeing him rated 80+ on some draft big boards, but have to imagine his athleticism will impress in pre-draft workouts (if there are pre-draft workouts). Could see him following a KNunn pathway using time in the G-League to improve ball handling and his shot. Best of luck
The agents have to be NCAA certified. If they are not on this list of certified agents, then they can not maintain their eligibility. The NCAA published a memo last year that goes pretty in depth about it. It's a long read but gives a real good explanation of the rules.This article (from 4/2018) says that athletes can hire agents and if not drafted still return to their schools. I'm confused.
Thanks for the link, that clears some things up. So the key is the certified agent list.Do we know if Whitney's agent is on that list??
Yeah, I don't get Whitney's decision. He might hate college, but it looks to me like his best shot of getting to the NBA. He could build his confidence back and show that his shooting and defense are better than during his slide at Kentucky. Might be a rude wake-up call if he goes the g-league route and finds he's not so special among all the guys trying to get a contract. Might be tougher than usual with teams' revenue being down.Whitney is not following the Nunn route more like the many hs phenoms that fail trying to be next Kobe/Lebron. Nunn played 4 years of college over 5 years then g league. Nunn was maybe top 2 of all ncaa scorers and solid player at Illinois. Whitney should of gone somewhere where he would play heavy minutes for 3 years and develop all his skills.
