Bam Adebayo will enter the NBA draft. He will the enter the draft like the sun will come up tomorrow and like Rick Pitino will say next year’s Louisville team reminds him of his ’96 Kentucky team. Those things are all guaranteed to happen.
The question is whether or not Adebayo will hire an agent when he enters the draft. If he does, he is gone for good. If he doesn’t, he can later decide to return to school for a sophomore season.
To that, we are hearing Adebayo is considering the latter — that he will enter the draft and not hire an agent.
I still think it is very unlikely we see Adebayo in a UK uniform again, but for those hoping he comes back, this news leaves open the slim chance he decides to do so. It’s a wise move for him and for anyone else who isn’t a lock to hear their name called in this year’s lottery.
