Report: Key Florida player withdraws name from NBA Draft, intends to transfer
The Florida Gators had a couple of players declare for the 2020 NBA Draft while still retaining their college eligibility — Tre Mann and Andrew Nembhard.
It’s always a tough call to weigh the benefits of another year of college with the potential to make money in the NBA, but it appears Nembhard has reached a surprising final decision.
Per Stadium’s Jeff Goodman, Nembhard will withdraw from the NBA Draft pool, but will also explore transfer options:
BREAKING: Florida’s Andrew Nembhard will withdraw from the NBA Draft and intends to transfer, source told @Stadium. The 6-foot-5 sophomore point guard averaged 11.2 points and 5.6 assists per game this past season and should be a pursued heavily by other high-major schools.

Nembhard appeared in 31 games for the Gators this past season, starting all of them. He averaged 11.2 points, 5.6 assists, 3.0 rebounds and 1.1 steals per contest.
Where he ends up next remains to be seen, but there should be plenty of interest in the talented point guard.
