Top prospects who returned to school, withdrawing from 2019 NBA draft

- by

Andrew Nembhard, Florida (Guard)

The Canadian-born prospect seemed to be trending in the right direction during the pre-draft process, though not quite far enough to warrant keeping his name in the draft. He seemed to be a consensus choice in the Top 100 on draft big boards with appearances on lists from Sports Illustrated, CBS Sports and The Athletic.

But he never quite scratched the surface to see his name on mock drafts. Of course, that is far from a perfect evaluation of his pro status and one far more indicative was his invitation to the G League Elite Camp.

There, however, he was a bit underwhelming during scrimmages. Nembhard nearly averaged as many turnovers (2.0 per game) as he did points (2.5) and assists (2.5) while in Chicago. The good news, though, is that he is a young and developing prospect with enough potential to emerge as one of the better non-freshmen in 2020.
