Hope this hasn't been already posted, but if true, still a good chance he is considering staying (50/50 is my guess)....Could be a LOT worse :p And now, at least we can either celebrate or move on to new and great recruits!!!!

I just came across it on SSF. Only Kelly knows what's in his heart/mind, I wonder if even he knows which direction he will go (one would assume he does). I wonder if there is any significance to this Friday????

I guess without some insider info. which is not likely, we'll all just have to wait and speculate. It's kind of a relief to me to know this agonizing will be over on Friday....Best of luck on whatever you decide Big Kelly!!! Speaking for most (I think, lol), we'll all be happy for you either way!

with the way Adam Morrison and his dad had him spotting up at NBA three point lengths during shooting drills at northpark last night, then had Angel Nunez spotting up at college distance----that was enough for me

Geeeez. I am not about to speculate on Kelly's decision based on his taking a few shots at a hoop. This speculation thing is getting a bit crazy. I know the knee-jerk reaction by many is to take the money and run, as though it's this year or never for the NBA. The fact is that if Kelly is meant to have a successful NBA career, it will happen whether he goes this year or next year. What really makes me greatly respect this guy is the fact that he has taken time to seriously consider all his options, rather than just bolting for the money. The thought of leaving GU early is clearly not an easy decision for him to make. For me personally, this speaks volumes for the character and maturity of this young man. I would selfishly love to see him stay, but given his whole deliberative approach to this NBA thing, I am totally comfortable with whichever way he goes. As coach Few said, what is most important is that Kelly is totally comfortable with whatever decision he makes, and that's all that really counts!

There you go! If he feels like he just isn't "on" - why would he want to try out for NBA scouts?

Kidding of course. He wouldn't be going through "drills" at this time of year if he wasn't planning on doing the same three weeks from now for scouts. IMHO

Whoops BZ! Didn't figure out that you weren't talking Kelly. Still, if he just isn't "feeling it. . ."

I'm sure he'll announce something sooner, but April 28th is the NBA deadline. If that day passes without him filing paperwork with the NBA, he won't be eligible for the draft this year, and you could probably safely assume he's staying. I'd expect him to make an announcement before then though.

Who would have guessed Marcus Smart was coming back when he would have been a guaranteed top 5 pick? Or Andrew Luck? Just sayin it could happen...and hoping it does happen!

04-16-2013, 08:37 PM
I am probably going to regret throwing this out here, since I have been 100% certain that he was leaving but. . .

I wonder if part of the reason that it is a tough decision is that he lives with Sam and David, they will all be 5th year seniors next year. Obviously the three must be pretty tight, must be a reason they chose each other as roomates. Just a thought.

IF Marcus Smart chooses to stay, then Kelly has a chance of staying.

One in a million, but

"So you're saying.......we have a chance?"

Ronny stayed, in part for Michaelson. So Kelly has every reason to finish the business.

Whatever decision he makes is going to be the right one.

The guys I feel for are the ones who had no business coming out and yet elected to do so.

With Marcus Smart staying in school, there is that much less competition in the draft and more reason for Kelly to declare.

That depends on what your definition of drastically is.

oddly, since marcus smart is more of a surefire nba talent than kelly then his staying represents less of a risk.

It depends on what you mean by "drastically hurt."

A guy like Blake Griffin returned for his sophomore year, improved, and got picked higher in the draft as a result. Trey Burke will experience this same thing in the coming months.

A guy like Ronny Turiaf returned for his senior year, improved, and got picked lower in the draft. However, the improvements he made between his junior and senior years got him that second contract and cemented his place in the league for years to come.

I guess you could argue that Jared Sulllinger returned for his sophomore year only to see his stock drop, but a large part of that was a back problem that NBA doctors felt could and eventually would shorten his career. However, he had been suffering from that back problem for quite some time, so it is quite possible that NBA doctors would've discovered the problem even if he had bailed after just one year. It's been a chronic condition....not some freak injury.

maybe, just maybe Morrison and his Dad have been telling Kelly the NBA can wait...

If you're a Top-5 pick, sure, it may be worth the guaranteed money to go.

If you're a Top-20 pick, maybe not?

Ammo had no chance/opportunity of improving his stock, Austin Daye never had any intention of staying past his 2nd season, yet Kelly is unique.

I'm not saying he'll return, he most likely will not, yet Olynyk -- weak draft or not -- has a legit chance of actually moving up the board.

Top-10 pays a lot differently than potentially 15-25. Its not like he's been promised he's a late lottery pick, that is the projection. If anything, his stock is more uncertain than either Daye's or Morrison's.

At least by next season, he'll know EXACTLY where he's going instead of possibly late Lottery or Top-25ish.

As CDC eluded to, its all about the 2nd guaranteed contract. A Top-10 type pick receives much more opportunity than even a mid-to-late 1st Round pick.

If KO returns to average 18 & 10, I, for one, think his stock improves.

Bartfuff -- not going tag along on this one. Six months ago, it was unlikely many if any on the board, NCAA or in the NBA would have guessed KO would be this impressive this year.
He was gettting some accolades, but coming off a redshirt year, certainly nothing concrete to build a "I'm going to the NBA " decision. Unless of course, he decided 6 months ago to return to GU to ride it out with his mates and GU.

We'll find out soon enough.

Thanks for the post...that's a huge difference to consider for Kelly, and it got me to thinkin':

What if KO works out like crazy - like he does - this off-season to model his game after Dirk...(that elbow fade shot; NBA 3's; battle on the boards etc.) and Karno parks down low in the 5-spot. Man can you imagine this lineup:

Pangos / Bell / Coleman / Olynyk / Karnowski

Go with your heart and run with it Kelly, but imagine yourself dominating at the 4 and showing off your Dirkness next year as a Zag. You could play your way into the lottery for sure if your game takes another great leap forward!!

MDABE80
04-17-2013, 09:28 AM
If he's not a lotto pick, I'd strongly think about about having an AA year (again) Wooden award type year (again)....and working toward POY....this would get him into lotto territory. Just a thought... He's got lots of room for improvement.

gamagin
04-17-2013, 10:13 AM
There are compelling arguments either way, too.

Ammo & Dickau both got guaranteed contracts and that has made all the difference. They are both now retired with full benefits for life. Ronny is vested (i.e. has played for the required number of years to qualify for pension, insurance etc.) and I believe AD is now, too.

That seems to be the key, here, too, w/KO. Top 10 (i.e. guaranteed $$ years and vesting) or you are on your own & take your chances.

A friend fairly close to the scene added that KO could get a policy on his legs should he stay and at least guard against that contingency if he stays.

MDABE80, I agree with what you said. I was reading the comments and part way through I thought , "glad it is not me having to advise him" . Yes, the money will be great, but 30-40 years from now when he looks back,will he say I wish that I had done. That is no matter which he chooses. Good luck KO in which ever way you go. It is right no matter which way you go. Go forward and enjoy your life in either job.

Ammo got his money, but did he have a successful NBA career? I have wondered what might have happened to Ammo had he stayed at GU one more year giving his body another year to grow and strengthen. I'm not talking about improving his game here, just growing and developing his body. I remember an interview Ammo did near the end of his first season talking about how tiring it is to play so many games in the NBA vs. college. He was run down after his first season and probably didn't get much of a break in the off season. Other first year pros have said the same thing. In Oct 2007 an MRI found a torn ligament in his left knee ending his season just as it was starting. Ammo would never be the same after the injury appearing to lose his confidence and now many critics consider him a bust in the NBA.

There are a lot of what if's in life and no one knows for sure how Ammo's NBA career might have played out if he had stayed at GU for one more year giving his body one more year to develop and prepare for the brutal NBA seasons. I have to think that looking back he would trade the 3rd pick in the draft and the NBA career he had for a lower draft position the following year if it lead to a longer and more successful NBA career from a playing standpoint.

I'm not saying you don't go to the NBA when you're the 3rd pick, it's an obvious no brainer, but just because you leave school for the big bucks in the short term it doesn't always necessarily work out in the long term.

04-19-2013, 10:09 AM
Even more interesting to me is that Tony Wroten and Austin Daye are both playing for the Grizzlies and in the last 10 games Austin is getting more playing time and is scoring more than Tony. Not sure what that means but if I were Mr. Wroten's manager I would advise him to be careful about how he spends his money as he will never see a better contract and may never see another NBA contract.

scott257
04-19-2013, 10:22 AM
Oh, and while looking the info up about Tony Wroten's playing time and stats to see how these kids that leave early are doing in the NBA (which in Tony's case is not too good), I noticed that ESPN had an article about Kentucky adding three more recruits to their already abundant recruiting class. Was that already common knowledge and I had just missed it? I don't even want to reopen the Kyle Wiltjer issue, but hasn't Calipari just made it clear that Wiltjer isn't going to ever be a significant contributor at KY?

Meanwhile, it would sure be nice to see some more pictures of that blond and the Olynyk Clinic sign while we wait to see if there is any news coming today.

Just tweeted, Darnay Tripp is the KREM 2 Sports Director. Not sure what the sources are, and with no definite info (as early as today?) kinda seems like a guess. http://i.imgur.com/Y25rqJU.gif

All I know is that when an announcement is set up, they usually follow with the player telling us that they are declaring for the draft. If they are staying at school they seem to usually just send out a statement or something similar.

Usually. Marcus Smart did have a press conference this week though.

Wish he was staying to cement his legacy as an all time great Zag. Hopefully he'll continue developing his game into something special on the NBA level.

So I guess that the significance of him waiting until today is that he wanted to announce on his birthday - happy birthday Kelly!
