McKinley Wright, Chris Smith return to school; Tyrell Terry leaves for NBA Draft

It felt like the pandemic pushed back NBA Draft dates in perpetuity (as if this remotely matters), but August 3rd was finally the deadline for players to come back to school if they wish to play in 2020-21. Players can still come back to school and then declare for the draft by August 17th, but now we know who is coming back and who is leaving for the NBA.

Of Colorado Buffaloes importance, star point guard McKinley Wright IV is returning to school. We all expected this, but it’s still excellent news. The dynamic playmaker has been named All-Pac-12 all three years at CU, and he may very well be the best player in the conference this coming year.
