Bottom line he wasn't good enough for the league yet. But I hope he tears it up in his senior campaign.

Welcome back. Hope he has one hell of a season, helping the Jayhawks to a National Crown and making himself a better draft pick.

What's he legitimately going to be able to prove this year to improve his stock?

He seems like a 6'7" Jeff Boschee. Spot up shooter with not much else. Can drive a bit, but not overly athletic, long, or a high level defender.

He can get his degree.

I know the population views high level athletes that stay in school long enough to get their degree as failures. I don't. But the pinheads do.

He can get his degree and have some fun. I like that.

Yes, there is life after basketball and having a degree certainly can help make that life a lot better. Most likely Svi won't lower his potential for basketball by staying another year. A win win situation by staying.

Nothing against getting a degree. Education is obviously important to him. He's been an Big 12 All Academic first or second team the last two years as a Communication Studies major.

He would appear to have a dream of playing in the NBA. Both a degree and NBA career would likely help him and KU basketball.

What can he do over the next year to work his way into the NBA draft? It would seem that quickness and defense are two glaring weaknesses for him. He is also seemingly one dimensional from the scouting reports. He's a shooter and nothing else.

How does he quickly improve his NBA stock while he's getting that degree?

He's only 20 years old. Another year in college will probably help him as much as playing elsewhere, most likely Europe. His quickness probably won't get a whole lot better. His defense might improve and hopefully does. Ellis hasn't made it to the NBA yet, I think Svi has an even more difficult time getting there. But I hope he does. I want all Jayhawk players to do well, but for most the NBA is not a probable hope, as is true for all college players.

How can someone "work on" quickness improvement? Nobody works on getting taller either...
