    Will Nembhard be here beyond this season or scouts suggest he has hit his ceiling at this level and it is time to make some money?

    Haven't seen Appleby play but at 6'1" and looking at his Cleveland State stats, looks like a point guard exclusively. What then is Glover's role?

    Lastly, Will Mann be here next year and will he be strictly a "2"?

    Nembhard seems like he would be gone just based on how close he was this past year, and we seem to have pretty much recruited with this expectation.

    I don't see that he has the athletecism, but then he is very skilled with good vision. So I'm sure there are coaches out there who would be able to play more to his strengths. No doubt that lack of explosiveness would always be a handicap against the best athletes in the world, NBA just seems like a huge stretch unless some team just falls in love with him. Still plenty of money to be made internationally most likely.

    AN will leave regardless. Hopefully we will play 2-3 PG types together. Appleby and Glover maybe.

    Mann is big key next year. He has to shot 40% from 3. We don't have many shooters in fact maybe Locke is it.

    AN can play overseas, don’t see him cutting it in the NBA. Way too slow, doesn’t get his shot off quick enough, and doesn’t play very good defense.

    Don’t be surprised if Mann tests the waters after this season.

    None of the freshman are near ready!

    Glover is my pick, like the young mans game. A year under his belt is scary for the league imho.(by league I mean the SEC)

    In today’s NBA, I struggle to see where Nembhard fits in. But in a world where zigging while everyone else zags sometimes pays off, maybe some coach will take a chance on him. It’s not like he isn’t good... he just has a throwback style of play.

    Unless he wants to play ab
    He has a lot of improving to do this season before that becomes a realistic option.

    He would have to have a major turn around for that to happen!

    I spoke with a scout at the Charleston Classic who sat in on a few of our practices.
    He said Mann 'can do it all' and often 'dominates practice offensively' . . . . but that it hasnt yet translated in games.

    I am not sure if that makes him draftable, but this guy was raving about what he saw during practice.

    If Mann comes back he should be the lead guard playing next to Glover/Appleby. I think it's a big "if". Mann has the size and talent NBA teams draft for in the backend of the 1st round. See Anfernee Simons. Production isn't there, but teams look past that for extremely high potential.

    Wonder where AN is going. Hopefully not the G League.

    Until Mann puts it together consistently in games I don’t see any team drafting him. Even Curry needed 4 seasons because he doesn’t wow you with explosive movements.
