Men's BB roster set

Beilein says he sees no more roster attrition. Story at Mlive. Edit: LeVert decision pending.

Hasn't Brown made it clear that he wants to wait until after draft declaration deadline is up so he can go to a school that will give him a lot of playing time? Therefore, wouldn't Caris not leaving mean we aren't going to get Brown? (And I'm fine with that.)

But the roster is not really set.  Still need a decision from LeVert, but don't be surprised to see him back next year.

The story basically said everyone but Caris is accounted for. 

The big takeaway is not really the comments above in the thread but any flight risk of Chatman or Donnal which I guess were possibilities at least by parts of the fanbase.

Beilein said he'd be "blindsided" by any further roster attrition (beyond LeVert's potential entry to the NBA draft) in the form of player transfers or anyone leaving the program.

I don't usually neg, because I hate losing points. But your title and description were especially atrocious so there you go.

i dunno--i think i'd take brown over caris. you only get caris for one more year. you might get brown for 2, and his ceiling is higher. but at this point you root for caris because a bird in hand...

I mostly agree with you. I think there are times when a player is ready vs not ready. Sometimes it's really evident a player needs another year to develop. Other times, players are ready to go. For example, Trey Burke as a freshman vs sophomore. No doubt Trey would have preferred to go pro as a freshman. Would it have been in his best interest to do so? I say if someone like Brown is as good as he's touted to be, he should go pro after his freshman year.

Is it okay to say I'd take Brown?  I listed some reasons in another post below, but in terms of him vs. Caris, Brown's videos suggest he'd be a better playmaker for others, which, other than Spike and some late development by Irvin spurred by necessity, is something the team really lacked this past season.  Our offense had a lot of stagnant stretches, even before Levert's injury.

Spike did a great job of creating for others when he had the chance.  The team did a great job of passing the ball around unselfishly.  The main problems were a lack of experience inside and a lot of shots that didn't fall.
