PSA: Hiring an agent doesn't mean what it used to mean.

 

They can still return to school.

It would be pretty surprising to me if Cowan ever played a game in the NBA. 

 

And I get it, he will be back...  and he's just getting feedback from the NBA... and I hope he's ready to hear that feedback. 

Very good college player overall.  Will make good money as a pro somewhere.  Don't believe it will ever be in the NBA. 

Looking forward to his Senior year.

I like this new rule. Too many agents feed these kids on NBA greatness then they don't get drafted.

Yea, pretty much where I am.  He is a good CBB player but hard to see him in the NBA

Maryland's Trace Ramsey is transferring. The freshman only played in five games this year.

Goodman:

I stand corrected on this: Jalen Smith (Maryland) was probably the most surprising guy who didn’t test the process. Would have likely been a first-rounder.

I'm not surprised that Jalen will be back with the Terps next year, but I am surprised that he's not going through the pre-draft process before returning just to get a feel for what goes on so that he'll be better prepared for all the interviews and such next year.

Jalen would have been a 1st rounder? 

I highly doubt it.  It's possible.  Good athlete. Can step out. Young.    But it's not like he is a polished player, and his limited strength is an issue at the college level. 

Bruno has a stronger game currently, and he's basically looked at as a Top 25-35 guy.   Could Jalen gone to individual workouts, impressed someone, and been selected in the 1st... sure.  Would he have been an automatic 1st? That's a stretch imo.

It’s all about projection, you know that.

Him not being strong enough right now means very little.

Projection definitely matters, no doubt.  And that projection and a strong personal workout could have possibly gotten him into the 1st. Any argument that he definitively would have been a 1st rounder is a joke.

The tweet originally quoted said "Would have likely been a first-rounder," so I don't think that opinion and yours are at odds with one another.

 

"Would have likely been" feels a little optimistic to me, I'm with you that it seems possible to me but that falling to the 2nd round would be more likely.  I remain surprised that he didn't go test the waters, though.

Will hurt recruiting in the short term, but you want to be the type of school that gets top assistant candidates and helps them land head coaching jobs.

As much as having him back would've been great, this seems like a smart choice.  Hope he goes in the first round.

 

He'll go down as one of the more memorably and enjoyable guys to watch in quite a while.  Certainly on the very short list for both play and personality since Turgeon took over.  Was really fun getting to watch him for two seasons, very glad to have gotten the second season.
