    Strangely I don’t think Anthony Edwards has declared for the draft yet, has he?

    Having a hard time imagining a scenario where he stays in school. I know I would’ve gone for the cash.

    He has to declare one would think. He is a top 10 pick at worst.. stranger things have happened.

    We should start a GoFundMe to compensate him for staying one more year :D

    Paulsen didn’t rush him back, not even sure he has that power. Kier had the choice between surgery or rest/rehab and he didn’t want to miss the whole season after surgery. DP has botched plenty of things but he‘s not rushing players back from injury.

    at this point, Kier needs to make a decision. He is stringing us along. I was hoping he would have a decision by last Wednesday. If we don't hear something by Wednesday, I would like to move on.

    He's dropping his top 5 today so we'll see if we are still on his list.

    Yea this is a problem. As nice and sweet sounding as Kier is, he is pretty stubborn.

    I don't understand why everyone is so hopeful. In my mind, he's not coming back. If he was committed to us, he would've never entered his name in the transfer portal in the first place.

    who needs a GoFundme when we have fans begging him on Twitter to come back. SwimMom, Dyl_Davis21 and some others lol. We probably are desperate for Kier to come back but the majority of our fans on Twitter are absolute dweebs. One more step today to finding out when he announces his top 5. We need Tucker to pull back from the draft by June 3rd for Butler to eliminate them. Not sure someone averaging 8 points and 6 rebounds thinks they are going to the NBA but YOLO

    Agreed, I think the chances are still pretty slim even with a lot of the big name schools falling out of contention. And we may paint ourselves into a corner waiting for him and go into next season with an incomplete roster again.

    It appears to me that Justin is close to making a decision. And, he's so good, that Mason should not jeopardize its chances of retaining him.

    However, I will stick with my original prediction:

    Conversely, if he had made up his mind to leave, no reason to include Mason as a possibility. I think he wanted to explore his options and see which P5 schools would come after him, and that’s what he’s doing.

    I don’t expect him to stay, but it’s not a no-brainer decision like I thought it would be.

    the majority of schools he is looking at really don't seem to fit his goals or aspirations to a T other than Auburn and Butler (but he hasn't actually toured them so do we really know the interest levels?) I don't think he comes back either at this point but damn would he and his advisors be making a dummy decision if he chooses someone like Minnesota or Georgetown

    I’m trying to find the quote from Kier saying he wants to be playing meaningful post season basketball but I can’t find it right now, does anyone have it? All I see are quotes about wanting to come in and contribute immediately, etc. Maybe he just wants a bigger stage? Which to be fair everyone left on his list is a bigger stage than Mason is right now.

    nothing I have seen from his mouth, just speculation from reporters (NBCSN wrote "he would likely want to go somewhere that would allow him to start and contend for a postseason tournament.")

    Is Kier good enough to carry this sub-average team?

    He probably keeps us out of the bottom four, outside of that I’m not really sure. All depends on how healthy he comes back after a tough injury.
