Key Mizzou players Jeremiah Tilmon, Mitchell Smith announce 2020 NBA Draft intentions
The Missouri Tigers didn’t fare so well in SEC play this year, but they still have some talented players on their roster.
Xavier Pinson declared for the 2020 NBA Draft on Tuesday, but will retain his college eligibility. Now, he’s been joined by 2 of his teammates.
As you can see below, both Jeremiah Tilmon and Mitchell Smith will test the draft waters, also retaining eligibility:

Tilmon appeared in 17 games, starting 11, this past season while dealing with injuries. He averaged 8.2 points, 4.4 rebounds and 1.2 blocks per contest.
Smith averaged 5.1 points and 4.9 rebounds per game, appearing in 30 games and making 13 starts.
While neither will likely stick in the draft class, they’ll both gain valuable experience about things they can work on in this upcoming season.
