20% of this board does not understand that since we have had so few players in the league. Sure, Keegan would be drafted again next year, but as a top 15 pick which he will be this year, why would you wait a year and pass up that guaranteed money? He's not a Luka or Joe, he's going to get into a teams rotation. This is life changing money, and it's going to be available now. The process has already started, it's not like these guys don't know where they're being projected. We're an 8th place team going to make the tournament as a 8-9-10 seed, which is a good year after losing Luka and Joe. Could we be a top 5 Big Ten team next year if he comes back? Top 25 in the NCAA? Or do you go to your dream and go make 10 million dollars a year.The only thing that matters is if a team is ready to draft a player.
They draft based on where they project a player to be not where they currently are.
