He is at best a mid-2nd round pick. A 6'1 guard scoring big in college does not always translate well to the NBA where you are guarded by 6'6 guards that are more athletic and highly skilled. The NBA is the elite of the elite...ask Ponds what he thinks

You are WAY OVEREVALUATING Powell's pro potential. It would not surprise me if he goes undrafted like Ponds

And I am not the only person that feels that way.

Which is why I was somewhat surprised that he decided to come back for his senior year. IMO, there's very little he can do to rise his stock, this year. I guess if he can carry them to a final four, like Kemba Walker (who took it all the way), it could help, but Powell is, and always will be, an undersized guard. That's a problem for NBA teams in general, especially since he's not Allen Iverson defensively.

“ I’ve heard a target return date for him is either Florida A&M on the 23rd or Oregon in the Battle 4 Atlantis.“

Maybe he realized that and is doing it for the degree he'll need to have so he can coach immediately after returning to the states in 2033.

That’s the exact reason Mustapha came back.

That probably was part of the reason Heron came back, but I also think he wanted to get healthy, first and foremost.

That knee injury definitely limited him last year, but while it hurt the team down the stretch, it may have had a long-term benefit WRT this year.
