By no means am I saying Nate Darling is as good as Tyler Herro but their scouting reports are almost identical. They're both elite shooters and average athletes.

Herro scouting report - https://www.nbascoutinglive.com/tyler-h ... ng-report/
Darling scouting report - https://www.nbascoutinglive.com/nate-da ... ng-report/

If Darling can find himself on a team where he can rely on his catch and shoot abilities there is a spot for him.

I think they're 2 different players. The scouting report says so too. It said Herro was a playmaker, can rebound, can defend and said Darling cannot do those things..although they called him a decent playmaker, Herro is a much better one

I still think Darling needed one more year to work on his game and improve his stock. I see him being an Anthony Morrow type pro with a better handle

SeanieWard, if your evaluation of Dalring is correct, it is a shame that he didn't stay at UD for the 2020-2021 & 2021-2022 seasons to improve his game and further his education.

A) there will be a flood of kids hitting the professional ranks in 2022.

B) think back to the day you no longer had to live as a broke-**** college student.

Sometimes it’s just time to take your best shot.

Jeremy Woo of SI recently ranked his top 80 players in the draft. Roller was 38 and Knight was 63.
Nate did not make the list but I hope he finds the right fit. I may even watch more NBA games if he makes it.

I have to believe that Darling himself knows He's a longshot to get drafted. If it happens...Great!!

Makes me believe He has a pretty nice deal lined up overseas which was his most realistic destination. May not make NBA money, but overseas does provide an opportunity in many instances where becoming a 9to5er isn't worth it at this time in their lives. And a very comfortable life it can be.

Best of Luck to Nate in his future endeavors!!!!

Hornets also drafted Riller at #56. Two top CAA guys on the same team.

A 2 way contract indicates to me he may not be in Charlotte for the opener.
