YES DELETE THAT POST ASAP

Jk

So yea when you have a chance to get two of the best players from a team that went 2-17 you absolutely MUST do it.

Jk hopefully these pieces are better than the whole they were a part of

"NC State has landed yet another high-profile transfer out of the portal in former Louisville guard Mike James. The 6-foot-5, 200-pound guard committed to the Wolfpack moments ago and adds to an already star-studded class that includes Dontrez Styles and Brandon Huntley-Hatfield.

The sophomore guard is coming off a season in which he averaged 12.6 points and 5.0 rebounds with a nearly 40 percent shooting clip. He's shot 35 percent over the last two years combined from behind the arc with Louisville and was the team's third-leading scorer and rebounder last season."


Should transfers be in the Recruiting Thread???

So he’s a PG?

Can we just one single “SPORTS” thread and contain all sports talk within that?

He declared for the NBA Draft... that really doesn't mean anytihng, right? He can come back at any time?

His announcement sounded pretty definitive about being done with school.

Some things never change. We lose a guy prematurely to the “nba draft” (probably just gonna play in Europe). UNC gets RJ Davis back for like a 6th fucking year instead of him pursuing a professional career.

^^he said something along the lines of being 100% focused on his professional career, which i took to mean that he was gone regardless of if he is drafted into the NBA.

^RJ Davis is like MAYBE 6 feet tall. You have to be really, really good to be a pro basketball player at normal people height. You only have to be really good if you are nearly 7 feet tall.

^^^ yeah I get that Davis definitely isn’t an nba prospect. And that he’ll make more nil next year than he would professionally. Theyre different situations. I was just doing the lazy thing of “UNC always gets dudes to come back an extra year and we never do”

Sucks losing him but I think some of his rebounding stats could have been a little padded by Burns & Middlebrooks being not so good rebounders. And next season we will have BHH who almost averaged double digit rebounds at UL so maybe Mo doesn't keep putting up those same #'s next season if he stays? Plus the dudes gonna be 24 next year and he's probably just trying to move on with his life (Euro career).

Ok so this make more sense, because MO is an international player, he can't get NIL money.


so no way to lure him back, unless laws are changed. maybe go old school pay him under the table or through another player. NCAA ain't doing shit to people these days

It's already been discussed, but he and other international dudes are still getting paid through legal workarounds. I'm sure we could have paid him as much or more than a lower level Euro league team next season but it sounds like he just wants to be back overseas and move on with his life since he's been in the US for several years now (since prep school) and he's almost 24 years old.

PG - MOC, Pass, Tre Parker
G - Jayden Taylor, Paul McNeil, Marcus Hill
SF - Dontrez Styles, Dennis Parker Jr, MJ Rice, Mike James
PF -
C - Brandon Huntley Hatfield, Middlebrooks

Seems like we have a lot of potentially interchangeable pieces at the 2/3 positions. Lots of possible combinations. And I think we can expect to see lineups with Hill at the point. Pass will definitely have the opportunity to play some legit minutes next year. Pass is limited clearly, but I think he’s capable of giving us 10 ish solid minutes a night. Styles, D Parker, even Rice could play small ball 4 but I don’t think that’s the ideal situation.

Crazy that with Mo gone, there would have been a shot for Ross to get minutes at the 4 this season... I hope we get one more solid big man.

I really want to believe his "lower leg injury" in the pre-season really set him back and that's why he hardly played last season. But this year he'll stay healthy in the pre-season and be a solid back-up....

Feels like best case is he gives us 5-10 mins/game. If he’s forced to play more than that then we might be in trouble. If he’s can’t even give us 5-10 mins then it’s probably a wasted scholarship

^^ yeah i get that. Seems like a good locker room guy and popular among teammates. But if he isn’t good enough to play and we couldn’t upgrade over him in the portal then thats kinda disappointing.

Nice to have our starting all-ACC hype man back. Sounds like we are still taking one more big (Anselem-Ibe from UGA?), which means someone else (Rice?) is leaving.

Yeah this kinda only makes sense if there’s gonna be another roster spot open back up. Surely we could’ve upgraded over Ross in the portal.

Okay, maybe a stupid question, could a guy walk-on the team and play without a scholarship (but they'd get enough NIL money to pay for school and extra??)

I think it depends on certain factors. Like i don't think you can if you've previously offered a scholarship to them, but that might be wrong. I don't feel like looking it up in the bylaws. Might also have to do with official visits IDK. Otherwise you'd have schools skirting the rules already and i don't see Kentucky basketball doing this or Alabama football.

Does Ross count towards our transfer rankings? He’s gonna drag our ranking down unless they account for hype factor.
