    Hope he can stick. Tough competition.

    Wonder what "partially guaranteed" is? Sort of like "semi boneless?"
    ...he went up late, and I was already up there.

    It means he gets the cash even if he makes the roster or not.

    100 percent made the best decision for himself when he left. Hope he can get a roster spot. Still great to have guaranteed money,

    We all loved that team so much. It is interesting to see how damn hard it is to make the NBA and maybe we will see Tre on Jazz, JP on Cars, Kaiser on Celts this year but I have a feeling that at best they will be up and down from G league. Some thought Kaiser was best NBA prospect at the time. Cant wait for start of season and a friend from NJ just sent me a Bergen Catholic backpack (he is an alumni and contributed) as he saw Freemantle quite a bit.

    I'm not sure I agree with you here. Honestly if he was going to go early the time to do it was after his sophomore year.

    It's impossible to know. He very well could've stayed and starred on last year's team, led us to a couple wins in the tournament and not had to have struggled as hard as he has to make a roster.

    This assumes he improves at X at the same rate as he improved in the G-league, which is almost never the case. I would agree that he probably left a year too late than a year too early.
