Will They Stay or Will They Go?

Page 9 of Now that the season has reached its (unfortunate) end, who stays and who goes for the Wildcats? If I had to guess, I'll venture Knox, Shai, and Diallo ... 193 comments | 19518 Views | Go to page 1 →

    If he was exposed that badly do you think the NBA guys were too busy to watch the tourney?

    I think a top 10 pick or even a lottery pick almost always need to go, I can see his parents being concerned about his age though.
    More so from an injury standpoint but draft stock falling is another worry. Miles Bridges is an example. Grayson Allen is another one. I know he can get insurance and surely if he comes back they get a nice insurance policy. With the insurance policy I’d have zero issues with him coming back.

    I didn’t realize he was that young though. You don’t see many 18 year old college freshman like him these days.

    Supply and demand still exist. Yes, it was easily his worst game of the year but the NBA needs 60 picks this summer.

    I'm with you on this one. He is on pace to graduate next May. I believe he stays and graduates, then decides what he wants to do. Most guys who have stayed and graduated from UK have been pretty well taken care of.

    Top heavy like most drafts. Try to find the hidden overseas gem, then start taking fliers and hope you find something left over.

    From what little I have seen, seems like Barret is a stud, after that there are many question marks.

    Matt Jones is hyping Keldon Johnson, then there is Zion.

    He's hyping Johnson but has said he is not on the level of Wall, Cousins, Davis, ect... It's all relative with these recruits. When compared to the other recruits in the class they are at the top. When compared to other classes, not so much. Who knows with Zion. He makes for a good highlight reel but what's going to happen when he can't jump over his opponents?

    I am curious if he winds up having a similar year to Diallo.

    I have myself convinced that Knox will not be returning so that I am not left disappointed.
