I am seeing Grant Riller anywhere from 34 to 45 in RD 2 in mock drafts. I am not seeing Nate in any mocks.

70% of the players selected in the 2nd round over the last 6 years received at least a 1 year contract.

The key is for Darling to know he will be taken in the 2nd round for the contract.

Him having a great senior year and possibly a big splash in the dance would certainly help his stock....on the other hand, the fact he is still in the draft could mean there is interest.

he is making an mistake, he is not ready for pro basketball. He does not have the greatest ball handling
skills. He needs another year to work on them. He is get some terrible advise if he goes into the draft
this year.

Too many unforced turnovers & can't play a lick of D. Hopefully, he comes back & improves his skills.
He sure is fun to watch though.

If you're bored, check out some of his high school games on youtube. He's
a starter with a former sixers # 1 draft pick.

I still strongly believe he has a miniscule chance of going NBA. We need him back, and he'll draw more attention with the extra year to showcase his improvement though it may be limited due to the pandemic's effect.

There is no way he's ready for NBA size, quickness, strength, and athleticism. Another year of Division I basketball will do his game, and potential pro prospects, a great deal of good. I still think an NBA career would be a long shot even if he comes back for his senior year, but at least he would have positioned himself much better to potentially be drafted.

Does anyone know if Darling graduated?
Making 100K in the G League isn't a bad gig for a History Major...

If Darling has graduated, have to assume he would be in the transfer portal.
