Never count your chickens, right.. .but the "NBA early entries" talk this week -- meaning, "we might not have any this year" -- immediately raises the question: How good can this team be next season?
How reasonable is it to assume no one leaves early for the NFB. Nik - can't play D and will be outmuscled (a problem THJ is having). GRIII - need to, um, find game. Mitch - could be viewed as a major risk if he comes out this year. And this is supposedly a very deep class for the NBA generally, so as a player it's not a good class to "take a flier" on.
And assuming no one goes early -- which of the most likely recruits (incoming freshman) are likely to play, and what positions. I have no clue on this.
So project the entire team (sans Jordan, although, that's legitimately half a big loss) comes back, plus Mitch playing full time, plus Donnel joining the lineup, plus whatever freshman will contribute... Is there even available minutes for everyone to play?
