Not totally shocked by this but a little surprised. Obviously  the only player who is Ready but after the year he had I think  he would wait , but then again with the injuries it might be best for him. IF so looks like Michigan will meet the scholarship numbers it needs. bounce bounce bounce

The nba doesn't like anyone that stays 4 years unless they are a center. The feeling is if they are good enough for the league they wouldn't have stayed all 4 years. That means there is no leverage or anything if he stays.

He's not going to get any better in college. He needs to go.

Too fragile. I wouldn’t take him until he showed a little durability.

But woody you have to realize there is a lot more out there than the NBA. Players are finding that careers overseas are profitable enough if not going to make them rich.

Everyone is only talking about how he's not NBA ready. Maybe that's true. But it's not a death knell.

I also have to admit from what I've seen about 90% agree with you and 10% agree with me. So, we'll see.

I'm kind of a broken record on this but for some it is how much you enjoy college life and all that goes with it. Do you like or not hate at least going to classes? Do you love college basketball and the BT tourney and NCAA's. What is a senior season with your teammates worth and in Liver's case, being a star on a contending team worth?

A guy who was an absolute top tier NBA prospect, Tim Duncan, weighed that and went back for his senior season and he would have been a top choice as a junior.

Livers is not on the NBA radar to be drafted (if we can believe all of the "expert" projections). Does being paid to play in Europe appeal? In this age of turmoil over there, troubled governments, terrorism, and now the coronavirus, I would think Europe is a lot more dicey.

I think Cassius Winston looked at all of this last year, he was not likely to be a first rounder last year and maybe not a second rounder. He isn't this year either but he got another chance to be a star in college basketball one more time.

In high school, one of our starting forward’s nickname was Frail. That’s who Livers reminds me of.

I would not call him frail, maybe Caris Levert was when he was at Mich (though things have worked out well for him). He is big and strong.

He just isn't a top prospect. Joe says the NBA doesn't look at seniors, the truth is they barely look at juniors. The mocks I've seen are mostly freshmen, foreigners, and a few sophs sprinkled in. The only ones I recall that are neither are Tillman, a junior (late first round) and Winston, a senior (mid second round).

Could he make- it sure and I will be pulling like heck for him, but the Duncan Robinson stories are exceedingly rare.
