Report: 2 LSU players withdraw names from 2019 NBA Draft, will return to school
The LSU Tigers already got some good news when it was revealed that talented G Javonte Smart was returning to LSU for his sophomore season.
Now, it appears the good news continues for coach Will Wade and his staff, as it was reported that two more players were withdrawing from the draft.
As you can see below, Jon Rothstein reported on Monday night that Marlon Taylor and Skylar Mays are both expected to return to LSU next season:

Taylor averaged 6.7 points and 3.6 rebounds while starting 24 of 35 games last season. Mays started all 35 games, averaging 13.4 points, 3.3 rebounds, 2.1 assists and 1.9 steals per game.
Both of them will be expected to take on bigger roles this season, so it’ll be interesting to see how the 2019-20 Tigers look when they take the court this fall.
