he did.


Head scratcher for me, but I don't know a thing about the draft but would be shocked to see him go in first round.

I wish him the best. He's an incredible player and better person.

I feel for the kid. If you read the statement put out it really sounds like he's between a rock and a hard place and I think he made a smart decision. What's worse for his draft stock: go now and hope for the best and work and rehab with NBA trainers and docs over the summer and have a specific team telling you what to develop?

Or try to come back at Xavier, have a set back, miss most of the season and then have no good film for over a year and an "injury prone" label slapped on you?

I think he had to take a gamble. No way he's getting taken first round, but I could see a good team (Spurs, warriors, etc) taking him late second round and stashing him in the d league while he rehabs with NBA caliber docs/trainers. Probably the highest probability route he has.

Both Tre and Ed are on the NBA draft radar, nothing like a run in March to improve a player's status. http://www.nbadraft.net/2017mock_draft

Glad he came to Xavier!
He is a good representation of the Program at Xavier.
See article below a little more insight to his decision.

Good article by Shannon.
As Ed indicated, if takes 12 months to get back to playing then he effectively misses all of next year.
Makes sense for him to go pro and hope he can rehab and get a chance to play in the NBA.
Seems to be a quality kid.

Gonzaga has like 3-4 senior/grad transfers on this team. Few went "all-in" with getting that group there and it's benefitted him this season. it's not like his group of seniors have been there all 4 years.


Exactly - only Karnowski has played all 4 years at Gonzaga.
Williams-Goss transferred after playing his first 2 years at UW.
J Williams - also transferred after 2 years at Mizzou.
J Matthews is a 5th sr transfer from Cal.

Muncie,

I agree both are being evaluated by the NBA, but though I don't look at the different sites regularly, they often vary so much, making it hard to figure out which ones are legitimate (meaning they've actually received ***** from NBA personnel scouts or GMs). This is the 1st time I've ever seen Collin's or Thornwell's name for example. I think Collin's is a sure fire lottery pick. I also find it hard to believe 34 players will be picked ahead of Grayson Allen, and that Goss of Gonzaga won't be drafted.

It's interesting to see the scarcity of BE players. The fact that Butler has none, which I don't disagree with, shows what a hell of a job Holtman has done there.
