Goodwin & French put names in draft

Recommended Posts

Well, this news just keeps getting better. I remain optimistic however.

Just now, HoosierPal said:

Perkins should declare also. 

Agreed.  Honestly, like @billikenfan05 said, Perk is the most NBA ready.

With their stat lines this year it makes sense... I imagine both will be back but it’s gets them on the radar of the scouts... I don’t foresee either getting enough interest but they join a list of other elite players from the conference to declare and I don’t blame em.

id be more upset if these players didn’t take this approach.

Last year over 180 underclassmen declared for the draft for only 60 spots. Most went back to school. I see this as a good thing for them to get to find out what to improve on (besides free throws lol)

Doing this allows them to get feed back so they know what to work on.

All this does is help their game which also helps the team. 

I think I might put my name in the 2020 draft too. Why the hell not?

The feedback they would get would look something like this

Goodwin needs a tad better inside shot and three point shot

French can't be the sole reason are team is bottom in the nation in FT, also needs a mid range shot, cant dunk over every NBA player. 

Not worried at all about them being drafted because they won't. But I am worried about them leaving for a D League team and not finishing up their degree.

Good luck Jordan and Has (and take Javonte w you) and represent Team Blue !!

The fact that 2 (maybe 3) underclassmen are declaring/trying out in the same year is a testament to our program and coaches!!

I don't see either NBA ready, but if they get told by the experts maybe that will be a kick in the ass to make them better next year. JGood u need a perimeter shot and Has you need a mid range jumper.

When in our lifetimes have we had one ... two.... maybe even three underclassmen enter the draft process?  Larry Hughes; end of discussion.

It can't but warmth the heart of any longtime Billiken sufferer to see this happen in our lifetimes, given our history.  Having said that and offering each the best of luck, paraphrasing Aaahnold ......"they'll be baaaack."

Until then, knock them dead, guys!!!!!

What I don't understand is why doesn't every college player take advantage of this opportunity and test the water?

Like even players who know they will probably never make the NBA can just do it for the fun of it because that's the closest they'll get to playing in the NBA.

I think that is still driving most of this. Every year they only draft 64 dudes (so far) a year. Every player who makes it to D-1 thinks they have NBA potential.

If you declare/apply do they automatically take you?  Or is there a 'cut list?'  Anyone know?

With the virus I am not sure what any of this will mean. Can’t see any camps or workouts anytime soon.
