not enough withdrawls… going to be a lot of lost individuals
Still have two days to withdraw and still keep their college elibility. Plus there are other avenues including the d league and Europe for talented young players
Going to be a lot of guys making money playing basketball. They already lost a year of earnings potential.
By getting at least one year of a FREE college education! Education is a better long term investment even for “ballers”.
Half these guys are graduating with a degree that they don’t even know. Get your money now invest and then you can go back to college and by that time they will know what they want to do.
