    That would not surprise me at all. I think many are undervaluing Coffey's talents. 6'8 perimeter guys dont grow on trees

    It would not surprise you if he went undrafted and got a two way contract?

    My reaction was, so what?? If he goes undrafted that means he wasnít one of the top 60 prospects this year, and many of those draftees donít even get more than a whiff of the nba, if that.

    So f&cking stupid.

    Nothing has ever been documented but Amir's decision to stay in the draft does seem to indicate that he didn't like playing for Pitino. He's not ready for the NBA (if he ever will be), the family should be well funded and they also value education. What am I missing here?

    Amir's game is better suited for the NBA, than the college level. That doesn't necessarily mean I think he will be a better NBA player than college player, but I do think the NBA is fully aware of him, and I expect him to be drafted.

    Your primary assumption! If he is getting a shot at the NBA and was told it wouldnít change by playing his senior year, then he should go. As simple as that.

    Exactly. Staying for his senior year could help his Gopher cred, but can only hurt him professionally.

    Even if he doesn't get a two way contract next year, he can still make 35k for 5 months of work in the G-League. The teams also put you up in a house rent free, so that 35k goes alot farther.

    If he gets a two way contract, he can earn 50k just for going to training camp with the team. Players under a two way contract make $77,250 if they just play in the g-League for the 5 months. If he gets called up to an NBA team he will make the prorated league minimum which equates to nearly $4,800 a day.

    Not life changing $. You only do this if you are expecting to get to the NBA.

    Not enough money, for a long enough time to replace getting your degree for a real career.

    Why can't he finish his degree later? The time period for earning money as a pro athlete is limited. Why not take a shot now? He really had little to gain by playing for free for another season.

    Exactly, if he wants to play in the NBA this route is probably a better choice than staying in school another year, your life is basketball for five months with no other distractions, I would still say the NBA is a long shot and he's probably got 40 years of work ahead of him, in 15 years he will miss that he didn't have a 4th year of college.

    Amir's knee injury played the biggest role in the decision. Prior knee surgery- and he doesn't want to put another year of wear and tear w/o getting paid something. Don't blame him for that, knees don't last long in the modern game.

    Didnít think Amirís life coaches would be sticking around this long.
