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?

Kahlil Whitney’s college career is over as he is hiring an agent and entering the 2020 NBA draft, the former Kentucky player told ESPN.

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
 
This article (from 4/2018) says that athletes can hire agents and if not drafted still return to their schools. I'm confused.

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.

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??

Was holding out some hope, but it would seem that is a lost cause. He seems highly likely to go the G-League route.
 
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.

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.
