    What a bummer if true. What makes it even worse is seeing players who are also projected to be drafted in the first round making the decision to return.

    It would be great to see either Booker or Johnson stick around. Having both come back might justify our pre-pre-season #1 ranking.

    From a skills perspective, they both could stand to come back. I can see Booker leaving but Dakari definitely needs to return. He actually regressed this season. I’m a Dakari fan but I can see him getting stuck in the D league if he bolts.

    I’d love for Dakari to come back…he’d be THE man in the middle next year with Willie and Karl gone. His progress this year was super – another year of working on his game and he could really move up the charts.
    I “think” Booker should return, he could stand to mature physically, improve his defense and get more consistent with his outside shot. All of this could make him a lottery pick.

    Dakari progressed this year? Huh? He needs to stay. Period.
