I know Oso said he expects not to return next season, but where’s he gonna go? Oso May crack an NBA roster at some point but he’s probably never playing major minutes and he’s now “old” for nba draft standards. Maybe he’d rather just get on with life and go play overseas or chase his dream in G league, but I wouldn’t couldn’t him out of returning next season just yet.
I would take Oso at his word.
Luke 6:45   ...A good man produces goodness from the good in his heart; an evil man produces evil out of his store of evil.   Each man speaks from his heart's abundance...

It is better to be fearless and cheerful than cheerless and fearful.

He is certainly on some draft boards.

Gold, Amadou, Hamilton and Parham. Shaka has been preparing for this.

Not to mention Jop and Owens can play the 4.  Plenty of frontcourt options.

Yup, the options will be there, they will just either be not as good or inexperienced.

Benny and Jop should start at the 5&4 barring something unforeseen, if Ben develops the way many think he will.
I’m not as bullish because I don’t love his lack of quickness/speed, but we will see.
I’d say scoop was partially right on OMax, and it seems we could be right on chase.
Hopefully Ben follows suit.

I bet Shaka has very high hopes for the owens/parham combo, so Royce should be able at the 4/5. Then there’s Caedin and Al who will have this entire year to develop in the shadows.

More than anything, I think Shaka needs to find a scorer. Size no matta imo. Can be a guard, wing, or big.
If Kam and TyKo leave with Oso, or eventually when they all leave, Jop will be the main guy that can go and get 20.
I’m sure someone will sprout as a bucket getter, but Shaka needs to reload with a shotmaker/bucket getter.
Those guys are usually fairly evident from the jump, and Shaka told us that both Kam and Jop can fill it up from day 1.
He hasn’t really said that about anyone else on the current roster

I am still surprised after 4 years at MU and supposedly the guru of shooting coaches in Nevada Smith that he has not developed any real shot, sure he wants to play in the next level but how can he without that!

Pretty Easily. An NBA team will give him 2 million dollars and 1-2 years to figure it out because he is 6'10" and does everything else. Every NBA team has a shooting coach that thinks of themselves they are larger Gurus than anyone on MUs staff.

Also our top ten offense largely Nevada, Shaka, and some Ben McCollum adoptions.

Shaka said Cade's trajectory is a rocket surgeon. I think he fully expects him to be a big contributor next season.

I am very confident that MU will not be lacking athletic, talented basketball players regardless of who returns. Not foolish enough to think Shaka will not miss on a recruit or two but have no doubt there will be 8-9 top level players on the roster.
