Love your posts yet I'm going to gently push back on one point

While he's 99 percent not coming back (I know what dad said but you never know), I disagree with this:

"Nothing to gain by playing another year in college."

I respectfully contend there's a lot to gain. Playing against competition where he can continue to build his game and confidence is a plus. You don't get better rotting on an NBA bench and hardly getting practice time. You get better playing a lot of minutes, competing and getting more instruction (Tad and his staff).

His marketability now is low. One more good season in Boulder, if he works his tail off between now and the 2023 draft, can greatly improve his market value and draft positioning (and first contract). If I was his dad or agent, I'd stress to him to be patient, delay gratification and play the 2022-23 season of college ball. Selfishly, I'd say at Colorado where the Buffs will lean on him yet if he wants, I'd support him transferring. Going to the league is not his best option. It's a choice, yes, but not the ideal one.
