The deadline for early entrants to declare for the 2020 NBA Draft is fast approaching today. The Chicago Bulls big man Wendell Carter Jr. gave advice to the young prospects before entering the process of preparing for the 2020 NBA draft.
“We’re living through unprecedented times right now. Obviously basketball stuff isn’t anywhere near the most important issue at this point, right in the middle of the coronavirus crisis, but what’s going on has meant that current draft prospects are in a tough situation that players like me didn’t have to deal with,” Carter Jr. wrote on Players’ Tribune.
“No individual workouts? No combine? No predraft camps? No in-person meetings? Basically your game tape is going to have to be good enough. So if you’re someone who maybe didn’t put up huge numbers last season, but who kills it when it comes to measurables and workouts, this honestly might not be your year.”
Whenever the season returns, the way which teams will contact prospects for the draft, will be completely different than any other year in the history of the NBA due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Moreover, the young Chicago Bulls’ center referred to the online mock drafts, finding reliable mentors and the best advice he received from his teammates, when he arrived in Chicago.
