Louisville forward Chinanu Onauku is currently in the process of deciding between heading to the NBA, or returning for his third season at UofL. His draft outlook is unclear, hoping to use the NBA Combine to impress scouts and move near first round status.
During interviews in Chicago, he was back and forth on where he stood, but he does have concerns about returning to school. After a postseason ban in 2016, he told Eric Crawford he’s worried that the Cards aren’t just yet in the clear.
“I feel like there’s more coming. I’m not sure if there is, but I feel like there’s more coming. Because the NCAA ain’t banned us, it was the school. They’re probably going to do something to us, I just don’t know what it is.”
Asked if that weighed onto his decision, he said, “Yeah. I thought about that a lot. It edged into my mind. I’m talking to my people about it. They just want me to do what’s best for me and what I think is best.”
You can’t blame him. It’s difficult to say what’s heading Louisville’s way.
