    Poor decision, IMO. And we just became a bubble team at best. Life as a Gopher fan. Enjoy Sioux Falls, Amir.

    Once the weekend went by without a decision, I figured him coming back was less likely. Too bad, I really think next year's team could've been special with him back. Best of luck Amir.

    Hope for the best for Amir but I just don't see the rationale behind the decision. From all reports it sounds like he really struggled with the decision and I think he will definitely have some regret when looking back on the decision next March.

    I hope it was based on good advice and not some team blowing him smoke. But I suspect Rick Rickert part II.

    Bad decision, hard to see him being drafted or playing in the nba. Sucks seeing so many others in the same position as him going back to school.

    Wouldn’t anyone rather play in the NBA, for the money anyway?. I suppose if your higher calling is to see the world and experience other cultures, then go to another county. My gut tells me most college players did not set as one of their high school goals to play division 1 BB so they could after make a leap to Europe or Pacific leagues.

    So, I'm guessing the people that advised him make more money if he signs a pro contract. Funny that they'd advise him to turn pro.

    If the people that advised him make a lot of money based on him signing a pro contract then they probably made the right call

    And if they don't ... no skin off their nose. There's always another mark coming along.

    Right. Cause an agency that represents multiple max contract players would do everything possible to get the 4% of what will be at best a NBA minimum deal or G-League contract.

    ??

    You think that Amir's agent has multi max contract players?

    The agency he went with also represents Kevin Love, Blake Griffin, Andre Drummond, DeAndre Jordan, CJ McCollum, and LaMarcus Aldridge among others. Tiger Woods as well. Doesn't strike me as the type of company that is going to give bad advice to Amir so they can make an extra 1500 bucks. And many agents don't even take commissions on minimum level rookie deals.

    I'm sure they got other fish to fry. However, an agency representing Kevin Love et al is highly unlikely paying attention to the AGENT working with Amir Coffey.

    I don't think he got bad advice, his dad seems to be quite an intelligent fellow as does Amir. I'm just saying, the agency of record isn't going to insulate them from giving bad/selfish advice. That's a crazy assumption.

    Maybe it's just me, but I think it's a crazy assumption that they would give him bad advice vs do their job. I generally don't assume someone is doing something wrong unless I have good reason to think so.

    The commission of the actual agent for Amir might end up being a few hundred bucks on a G-League deal after the agency takes their cut. What would be the long-term incentive for doing that?

    And like I said, if the agent ends up making a lot of money off the deal then that means that Amir got a big contract and probably made the right choice.

    I’m not sure what point you’re arguing.

    The size/clout of the agency does not prevent bad/selfish/greedy actions of one of their employees.

    That’s all I’m refuting. The agency having xyz superstar on their rolodex does not mean they are a good agency for Amir.
