Turns out Kofi has a few fans in Jamaica:

That's flippin' great. Papi needs a wall in PR.

This is kind of an in-the-weeds question, but I am wondering about how the decision-making process works for Trent and Damonte. I assume they're both gone, but they have to compare another year of free school versus the value of whatever pro contracts are available.

If they hire agents, they're gone by NCAA rules, no? Or am I wrong? How would they go about evaluating whether they could get a deal in China, Spain, Israel, etc. without an agent? I am interested in how this might work but not seeing anyone write about it.

I understand they can sign with agent,....and if they dont get an NBA draft #...they can come back to school as long as they cancel their agent contract.

Yeah, the rules have changed so many times recently, it's been difficult to keep track of the current iteration.

With all the roster turnover, just wanted to lay it all out together:

Ayo leaving and entering the NBA draft for sure.
Giorgi leaving to play professionally in Europe for sure.

Adam Miller in the transfer portal and probably not coming back.
Trent and Damonte probably not using their extra covid year to come back.

Kofi leaving for the draft honestly feels like a toss-up to me personally.

Bottom line: That’s a ton of minutes and production to replace. I’m not doom and gloom but we need to hit the transfer market hard.

Probably looking for an all new starting lineup.

Thx - would Damonte be interested in returning to play a bigger role offensively that he has in the past? I always got the sense that he could dial it up if we needed it.
