Not every player that enters the draft gets the privilege of playing in the NBA. With a new rule in place by the NCAA, it could allow for future players to go back to college if not taken in the draft in the future. Here are six guys who certainly could've taken advantage of that rule had it been in place this season.
6. Wenyen Gabriel
Gabriel is an interesting prospect, with a raw shooting ability and good size he could one day be molded into a solid NBA player. But he hasn't shown enough to this point and he went undrafted in the Draft. Gabriel will play in the G-League primarily this year in the Sacramento Kings organization.
5. Brandon McCoy
McCoy is an old-school kind of post player, who will plant himself down low and can rebound and score with the best of them. But without a real jumper or the ability to defend multiple positions, it made it tough for teams to take him in the draft. McCoy is currently on a two-way deal with the Milwaukee Bucks.
4. Rawle Alkins
Alkins didn't advance his game the way that NBA teams would have liked, and he slipped out of the draft entirely. He will get a chance to show the Bulls that he can play as he heads to Chicago on a two-way deal.
3. Allonzo Trier
The former Arizona Wildcat played three years under head coach Sean Miller, and his junior year ended with a big time upset at the hands of the Buffalo Bulls. While a proven leader on the court, his lack of a true jump shot and explosiveness to the rim limits his potential. Trier is now a part of the New York Knicks G-League program.
2. Malik Newman
Newman started his career with Mississippi State after a prolific high school career, and although he had a stellar year at Kansas he couldn't save his draft stock. Newman finds himself on a two-way deal with the Miami Heat after going undrafted.
1. Trevon Duval
Duval was once upon a time one of the most coveted prospects in high school basketball. He now finds himself on a two-way deal after going undrafted in the 2018 Draft. This is a guy who could have used another year to develop himself under Coach K with a talented Duke team.
