    Apparently some rumor that from what I can tell started on a local radio show that he may not have graduated this semester. That then turned into people on twitter saying he was academically ineligible, which is obviously something different completely. There hasn't been any official word on any of this and like you said, he can graduate over the summer.

    That’s assuming UALR offers the classes he needs to graduate over the summer and that he has the mental fortitude to pass them without any of the academic assistance he received while on the MBB team

    No reason to assume otherwise. You'd think that he would have gotten his ducks in a row and made sure that graduating from UALR in the summer was even possible before he went the grad transfer route.

    That’s pretty big. A lot of west coast kids will be able to stay on west coast without having to do down to a mid major

    No reason to think he can't do these things. Plus like I said, right now it is just twitter rumors. Nothing confirmed from reputable source. But will likely find out soon enough. Deadline to withdraw from draft is coming up.

    Yeah, May 29 will make a lot of things clearer for a lot of teams/players.

    Is there anything final about the 29th? I thought I've heard the player can go through the draft undrafted and still come back? That not correct?

    That's an NCAA-approved rule that both the NBA and NBAPA have to sign off on before it goes into effect. For at least this year the deadline for an early entrant to withdraw from the draft and return to school is May 29.

    I would assume this will put pressure on all the conferences to at least vote on changing their rules to lift any extra interconference transfer penalty in the next couple of years.

    I'm sure there is an explanation, but how does the NBA and the NBAPA restrict a player from returning to school, when the NCAA allows it? Or do they simply not allow them to enter the draft the following year? Essentially you can only submit your name into the draft once? So you can go back to school, but can't be drafted after that?

    I worded it poorly. It's not something the NBA and NBPA have to sign off on; they have to make a change to one of their existing rules before the NCAA will make their rule effective.

    "The reason for the discrepancy is because the aforementioned rule change regarding an undrafted player is pending. As the NCAA states: "This change is effective if/when the NBA and NBPA make an expected rule change, which would make undrafted student-athletes who return to college after the draft ineligible for the NBA until the end of the next college basketball season."

    An NCAA spokesperson confirmed that a player must withdraw his name from the draft on May 29 and therefore could not wait for the result of the actual draft. The post-draft rule change is not yet effective.

    "If the NBA/NBPA changes the rule that allows for someone who was in the draft but undrafted to be 'called up' at any point in the following year, the NCAA members may allow student-athletes to return if they go undrafted in June," the spokesperson said.

    In other words, if the NCAA were to adopt the post-draft rule, given the current NBA rules, nothing would stop a player from leaving school in the middle of the following season to join an NBA team. The NCAA, as stated above, would require the player to finish the college basketball season and re-enter the draft the following year."

    Wonder what would happen if they just decided to get rid of declaring for the draft and just drafted players and if the player decides to stay in achool that team owned his rights. Isn’t that kind of how baseball does it?

    In one of his incoherent ramblings on the Cyclone Insiders podcast last night Randy threw out the idea that Lindell could transfer.

    I heard it and doubt he would be content putting things off for a year of sitting out.
