Claims he will not sign with an agent

"Wenyen knows how much I would like to coach him another year." Really going to come down to whether Gabriel hears/believes his pro stock can improve significantly with another year in school or if it just kinda is what it is.

Gafford is among highest regarded who will not test the waters.

Reality is about to be offered to many others.

NEW: There are a whopping 26 SEC underclassmen in the 2018 NBA Draft. Here, my stay/go advice for the 17 who have not hired agents.


Quote
Missouri

Jontay Porter (6-11, Fr.) — Former 5-star recruit who reclassified and enrolled at Missouri a year early to play alongside his superstar brother (which barely happened, thanks to an injury to Michael Porter Jr.). He only started seven of 33 games as a freshman for the Tigers but averaged 9.9 points, 6.8 rebounds, 2.2 assists and 1.7 blocks (and shot 36.4 percent from 3-point range). He could be a star next season at Mizzou, sure, but it might be wise to strike while interest in him is high and dissection of his flaws at a minimum. Ranked No. 36 draft-eligible prospect by ESPN. Our advice: Stay in the draft.

Report: Brian Bowen invited to participate in NBA Draft Combine


Quote
South Carolina basketball player Brian Bowen has been invited to participate in the NBA Draft Combine, according to SportsIllustrated’s Andy Staples.

Bowen, who began his college career at Louisville, recently declared for the draft, but has not hired an agent. The former 5-star recruit left Louisville after he was named in the FBI’s pay-for-play investigation last fall.

NCAA has yet to rule whether or not he will be eligible for the 2018-19 season, so his future at the college level is still an unknown, regardless of the feedback he receives from NBA brass.

On Friday, Bowen’s lawyer, Jason Setchen, confirmed the combine invite.

NBA Draft underclassmen decisions: The Good, Bad and Ugly —


Quote
Most surprising

Arkansas' talented big man Daniel Gafford and Gonzaga's Rui Hachimura did not even test the process. Gafford, a 6-foot-11 freshman who averaged 11.8 points and 6.2 rebounds, would have likely been selected in the first round, maybe even in the lottery.

Ultimate wild card

Brian Bowen. There's a lot to unpack with Bowen, who likely won't know whether he will be cleared by the NCAA to play next season in time for the deadline. Bowen is a mystery to most NBA personnel, who haven't seen him play in more than a year. He's a likely second-rounder who might be able to play his way into the first round if he has a strong showing at the combine and in team workouts.

Most difficult call

Hamidou Diallo. On one hand, the Kentucky wing could use another season in college to improve his perimeter shot and his decision-making. On the other hand, there's a chance Diallo could get buried on the roster if he came back with a new set of talented freshmen coming in (Keldon Johnson, Tyler Herro). Diallo decided to sign with an agent, and it will be interesting to see whether he gets a guaranteed contract.

Declared and signed with agent

Five of the six Kentucky players who declared for the NBA draft have been invited to the draft combine.

Maybe Wenyen Gabriel gets a later combine invite as an alternate. Otherwise, he’ll need to light up team workouts or be comfortable going undrafted, taking the long road. (Or just go back to school, as all NBA folks I’ve talked to would presently advise.)

NBA Draft God

May 13

Florida’s Jalen Hudson has looked dominant at times during NBA predraft team workouts. Could be top-40 when all is said & done. USC center Chimezie Metu & Caleb Martin of Nevada have looked mediocre in workouts w Lakers & other teams. Texas A&M’s DJ Hogg has been lighting it up.

Last year there was just a single college player drafted that didn't get:

A) A guaranteed contract
B) A two-way contract and an NBA call-up
C) A lucrative overseas deal

The idea you need to be a 1st rounder to get good money or play in the NBA is untrue.

It used to be that kids only left if they were gonna be lottery picks. Then it was if they were first-rounders. It’s changed with teams giving guaranteed money to majority of second-rounders.

10 off-the-radar NBA Draft decisions that could have a major impact on the 18-19 college basketball season. The Rothstein Files @FanRagSports: https://bit.ly/2GVSQqd 


Quote
Jalen Hudson, Florida: This 6-6 wing made 78 three-point shots last season and is tailor made for today’s NBA thanks to his ability to extend any defense. Hudson doesn’t appear to be in the mix to be a first-round pick, but could still find a way to stick with a team because of his ability to make shots. If he returns to Florida, the Gators will have a potent perimeter with Hudson and KeVaughn Allen on the wings and freshman Andrew Nembhard at the point of attack.

Charles Matthews, Michigan [by way of Kentucky]: John Beilein is always going to have his team in contention for an NCAA berth regardless of his personnel, but losing Matthews would be a major blow to Michigan. Despite not being invited to the NBA Draft Combine, this Chicago native has still kept his options open for next season...

Admiral Schofield, Tennessee: The Vols are currently ranked sixth in the FRS Preseason Poll and Schofield is a major reason why. He emerged into a bonafide scorer last season and made 64 three-point shots as a junior after knocking down just 21 as a sophomore. His return ensures that Rick Barnes and Tennessee will again be in the mix for an SEC regular season title. Schofield was not invited to the NBA Draft Combine.

Jontay Porter, Missouri: For the Tigers to ensure relevancy in Cuonzo Martin’s second season in Columbia, they’ll need Porter back next to Jeremiah Tilmon up front. With Kassius Robertson, Jordan Barnett, and obviously Michael Porter Jr. no longer a part of Missouri’s program, Jontay Porter would become a featured piece to the puzzle in 18-19. The 6-11 lefty was invited to the NBA Draft Combine in Chicago and is generally thought to be in the mix to be a late first or early second-round pick.

So, now one source told me things may have changed with Jontay Porter recently. He was leaning towards staying in the draft a couple weeks ago. We’ll see in the next 30 hours.
