Sophomore guard Andrew Nembhard will test the draft waters, college basketball analyst Jeff Goodman reports (Twitter link). Nembhard has signed with Jaafar Choufani, who is one of just 23 NCAA-certified agents. The point guard will retain his ability to return to Florida if he decides to go that route.
Here’s more on the upcoming draft:
- Florida freshman guard Tre Mann has declared for the draft, Goodman passes along on Twitter. Mann averaged 5.3 points per game this past year.
- South Carolina sophomore guard A.J. Lawson will test the draft water, Jon Rothstein of CBS Sports tweets. Lawson will have the ability to return to school as he has not hired an agent.
- Jonathan Givony of Draft Express passes along several international prospects who will declare for the 2020 draft. Miguel Gonzalez (Baskonia), Sander Raieste (BC Kalev), Osas Ehigiator (Fuenlabrada), Njegos Sikiras (Fuenlabrada) have all entered their names.

At this point I’M going to declare for the NBA draft. I had about the same stats in college as Tre Mann, but I didn’t shoot the ball as well LOL.
With this newer rule allowing players to declare and then go back to their college if not drafted, why not take a shot. It only takes one team to see through NCAA stats and playtime to end up in the NBA.
I played Canadian college basketball as a third string PG 25 years ago, wonder if I should declare as well (well, I declare that my knees are shot and my runs recently are against my 50+ cousins, uncles and old man!)
Sounds good to me too. But it might just be for this unusual time. The rules may go back to normal when the country goes back to normal?
