I'll be a lot more into it when I hear he has signed his first guaranteed NBA contract than I am right now.
Darius Morris on the Journey
Kinda complete BS that these kids have no opportunity to try return to college if things don't work out in the draft (or in the NFL/NBA for whatever reason). I know its a moot point considering he hired an agent, but he didn't really have a choice. Honestly, though...if you declare and compete in workouts completely out of pocket, and don't get drafted (or do get drafted, but never sign a contract cuz of a lockout), what is the harm in going through the process then returning to college?
Hell, college hockey players are allowed to get drafted and still compete, why does the NCAA allow this but not allow it for NFL/NBA?
I agree that they need to look at the MLB, or NHL model for how they draft these kids, but if there is no reprecussions at all for going through th eprocess, then every player will declare, and every college coach will be clueless as to how his team will look until players get drafted, or not, sign a FA deal or not. Unless they overhaul the whole thing, it kinda has to be this way.
Really sucks that it is going to work out so poorly for DM in this instance.
once he declared for the NBA draft, he had no choice but to hire an agent, since he already lost his eligibility.
Thanks for the catch. I just set it to tape. (I had heard it would be on July 4. Maybe it will be repeated on Monday.)
may not include playing any basketball this year.
Those who stay will be champions. Those who leave sign contracts. Maybe.
