Hunter Dickinson declares for NBA Draft, will retain eligibility

Hunter Dickinson announced today that he’s declaring for the NBA Draft and signing with an NCAA-certified agent to retain his eligibility.

Dickinson averaged 14.1 points and 7.4 rebounds per game as a freshman. He was named First Team All-Big Ten and a Second Team All-American.

    I’m choosing to put all the weight on the section about getting feedback and that this means that’s what he’s really after. Agree on the heart attack though.

    It was a pretty strongly worded statement IMO. (Meaning, a heavy emphasis on feedback) Timing is a bit strange all around though.

    IMO Hunter wasn’t even thinking about declaring and testing the waters until you made your post. He made an abrupt decision and it’s all your fault

    He is 100% gone. He will stay in the draft and never come back to Ann Arbor. Book it


    Speaking entirely to the quirky nature of the young man himself. If you had been asked to bet just two days ago whether he would have entered his name, I know where most would have placed their bets after first asking if it was a trick question.

    Heck the timing of this announcement illustrates just that.

    Seems he has to resolve some conflicts in the opinions of him. Much of it coming from “advisors.”

    And frankly there is no obvious personal downside to him doing it.
