Taco MacArthur has a little shameless behaviour in the past
Well, Chase Jeter is transferring.

Not surprised, hope this means Bolden returns. I'm 90% certain Giles is bolting for the NBA, which given his injury history is smart. About 70% certain Kennard is gone. I fully expect Allen to return as his draft stock plummeted.

Giles officially going pro, smart move.

Yes. Hope he can get at least a few good years in.

FWIW, Sean Obi will transfer - bad knees and all - as a graduate student with a year of eligibility left.

Really, Really hope they land Bamba and Bolden stays. My best guess at a starting lineup:

PG/SG- Allen
SG- Jackson
SG- Trent
PF- Carter
C- Bolden

Bolden, who did not get a lot of PT this year, did not look good, especially on defense. I don't know if he had an injury or if coach did not feel he was ready for prime time.

Hard to tell, I'm sure it was a little of both. Still, he was a McD AA for a reason. Plus, it looks like Bamba is going to UK.

“I like Kentucky,” said Scout.com’s Evan Daniels, who recorded a podcast with Bamba that will be available online Wednesday. “If I was going to take a guess at where I thought he was going to go, I’d say Kentucky.”

Duke will probably land Kevin Knox

Bamba apparently wants to play with his teammate Quade Green

Duke is also looking good for Trevon Duval. He's the pure point guard Duke lacked this season.

Bamba would give UK a rim protector like they had with Anthony Davis. He and Nick Richards will make it tough for opponents to score points in the paint, if they land Bamba of course. Some good schools are still recruiting him hard.

I feel like Frank Jackson could be that PG.

Yeah. Either I wasn't listening good yesterday or the local sportscaster started walking it back today. In this case (I have no big money involved), I would go with "operator error" (me).

Kennard going pro, which was expected. I'm still thinking Allen returns, he's not even in some Mock Drafts.

Although it was expected, I'm surprised he's signing with an agent, because he's still projected to go in the late first round.

I don't know, he is supposed to graduate in the Spring. Hard to imagine he wouldn't want a guy with that level of talent back. However, Jackson looks like he could be a stud without the baggage Allen has.

I think it's a good move for Allen to return. He needs to get his head on straight, have a great senior year and go from there. He's got the talent to play in the NBA, but needs to exhibit more maturity. I'm not a Duke fan or Allen fan, but I hope the best for this kid.

It makes sense since he was only going to be a Round 2 pick. Coming back another year, w/o any "incidents" will let him work his way back into the 1st round.

Possibly, but unfortunatley today, being a 4 year college player is considered a "negative".

It depends on the player. A late bloomer, like Buddy Hield, isn't hurt as much as someone like Allen who was dealing with injuries and the conduct issues.

Allen needs to have a "spotless" season. In a second half of the season game, he slammed the ball between his hands and angrily muttered the f-word. Surprised he did not get a T. Can't do anything like that this year. Learn from the other players: Multiple times this year I noticed players getting clobbered inside or screwing up a play. They just play on, showing no emotion. It's a different game today - closer to the type played in the pros. Suck it up! Or,...

He struggled bc he was battling a nagging ankle injury. He did get T'd for the ball slam, but that was a gross overreaction by the official. If duplicates his Soph Season #s w/o any incidents, he'll be back to a late 1st Round pick.

Screaming the F word, I mean screaming it, will get you a technical and not an over reaction in the slightest. The over reaction was the media blowing it out of proportion.

Memory fading faster. LOL.

He's got game. Just needs to chill. Wish him well, of course.

Miss the days when all Devils players played four years, but times change...

??? Even going back to the last 90s-early 00s, they had a lot of guys leave early. K's got the right formula where you've got a mix of one and done and 4 year players. You need those glue guys for leadership. Looking at their last 2 title teams guys like Scheyer, Smith, Cook, and Jefferson were critical in their team's success.
