    Looks like $2.7M so far in his 3rd year. Not sure how accurate that is because he was cut, went into the G League, and now is on the Rockets NBA roster. After taxes and agent commission that's "only" going to be around $1.08M net. A nice nest egg to have in 30+ years but not enough to live off the rest of his life.

    Ken Bazemore had a similar path and is now making a good living in the NBA

    Not a bad payday. And, that is after his significant roll in winning the conference and beating a #3 seed in the NCAA tournament. IMO Tookie needs to continue working on the college resume.

    With no news of any visits or workouts for NBA teams to speak of, it would seem highly likely Tookie will return to play his Senior season.

    No insider knowledge. Hopefully, a much deeper team with lots of experience can make a legit run at the NCAA Tournament.

    I just looked up at the mock drafts from NBA.com earlier today. They compile major sites into a mock draft. Tookie was nowhere to be found.

    not surprised 1 bit. He's good, but he's not NBA ready right now.
