    Now even if Grant Williams comes back(and he may not) UT simply is not as good next year.

    Is there a chance that Williams comes back???? Admittedly I dont follow the NBA close enough to know if he should or shouldnt - but he is the back to back SECPOY. I figured he was a goner for sure.

    yeah - I cant imagine Williams returns.
    And, of course, Schofield graduates.
    This was a big year for UT - and they arguably shouldve done a bit more in the tourney.

    Big hit for them. I agree that its hard to see Williams coming back. They've recruited well recently but no doubt they'll take a big step backwards. Their future will be all about whether they can end up with the types of "diamonds in the rough" that they did with Bone/Schofield/Williams or if they've gotten enough momentum to recruit higher ranked players consistently enough.

    Lot of guys wax confident when they first enter their name only to find out the NBA doesn’t quite share their exuberance. Bone is a damned good player, but is he a better point guard than the undrafted Scottie Wilbekin was? I think not.

    How good they were in college and how well they project to the NBA aren't the same though. Bone seems the better NBA prospect to me, of the two, but I'll admit not following him incredibly closely.

    Williams still won’t go high, but he simply can’t improve his stock by coming back. Might as well ride the high he is on and see just how high he can go.

    I think Bone comes back.

    Scottie did not get drafted, yet earns $1.1 million per year in Euro league. So even if not in NBA, that $1,100,000 per year is a nice transitional route to NBA.

    They'll be fine. Barnes stole Corey Walker from our 2020 class which I'm not happy about at all.

    Fine? Maybe.

    But they will face a steep drop off next season.

    Perhaps Bone knows Williams is gone, thus coming back is a bad idea for him in a down year ahead.

    Here comes another high major offer for Ques.

    Probably open the flood gates on offers and piss some people off around here. :devil::D

    We liked Corey for sure, but not the top wing on our 2020 board so was not "stolen" fyi

    Does Williams have his degree? He's not a NBA player.

    Without Bone, UT's lineup for next year is looking a bit limp.
