With Admiral Schofield and Grant Williams off to the 2019 NBA Draft, Tennessee fans are hoping talented PG Jordan Bone decides to return to school.
However, after Bone had a great performance at this week’s NBA Combine, that decision got a lot tougher for the speedy guard.
This week, Bone announced when he’ll make his decision on whether to stay in the draft or return to school. Per college basketball insider Jeff Goodman, Bone will make his final choice on May 29:
Jordan Bone on whether he has decided to stay in the NBA Draft:
“I’m making my decision on May 29th.”
Still a little hope, Vols fans.

That gives Bone a lot more time to weigh all of his options, and it’s smart of him to use as much time as he can. This is an important choice and he should be giving it a lot of thought.
He has been a standout at the Combine, though, drawing rave reviews. He also compares favorably to how a pair of recent NBA MVPs performed:
3/4 court sprint:
-Jordan Bone: 3.03 seconds
-Derrick Rose: 3.05 seconds
-Russell Westbrook: 3.08 seconds
-Jordan Bone: 42.5 inches
-Derrick Rose: 40 inches
-Russell Westbrook: 36.5 inches

Bone has NBA talent, but we’ll see what he ultimately decides is best for his future on May 29.
