While it may appear disheartening to know that collegiate players can’t join the G League at any point in the season, it’s all about optics. It’s also about strengthening the G League Draft as well with prospects and avoiding situations like the one above where players can sit and wait until the team of their choice sits atop the waiver order, thus nullifying the entire draft process. Will Bazley’s (in)decision reflect on his draft stock? Opting to not play in the 2018–19 season will certainly limit his potential as a possible lottery pick, especially if scouts aren’t able to assess his talent and potential.
