So the door is not closed.
But it sounds to me like it's NBA or G-league for him.

He says it won't be Memphis.

I agree he could have gotten a few extra minutes here and there. He has a HUGE upside, but the last 15 games of the year Penny wasn't worried about "development" he was worried about "winning" and several games Josh's defense (or lack thereof) required he stay off the floor.

I would say he could have been the 6th man and would have got at least 20 minutes, but Penny, Larry and Cody know way more about basketball than I do.

When he was on the court, he stood out. Like I noted, he had flashes of brilliance.

His hands were incredible and his ability with on-ball defense to pop balls loose or strip guys was something I had never seen from a frosh big.

His main issue was getting lost on defense. Time and time again he was the guy who was supposed to be on some dude who was taking and making those wide open threes that killed us so often.

We all see that he is really a 4 …. He and his family seem to feel he’s a wing ( 2/3 ) …

Maybe he gets there. But he does not have the offensive skill set of a 2/3 nor can guard the 2/3 position. If you cannot play the position offensively and you cannot defend the position defensively then that should probably not be your position.

This is what is really tough about the portal and transfer rules. A kid like Josh should be sticking around and working on developing his game. If he would listen and work then he could absolutely develop into a three. Instead they have family/friends in their ear and they know they can transfer without penalty. So, instead of working and developing to earn their spot they just decide it is the coaches fault and take off...

He’s not bad as an on ball defender. It’s the communication with him. The switches and the screens. Didn’t have the instincts. But neither did Bates. It’s something that’s learned over more than a year

Penny blew it with Josh.

How, though? Play him more at Center?
Play him ahead of Deandre?
Play him at the three (14% from 3) ahead of Landers?

Play him ahead of Dandridge. When Duren goes out, move DeAndre to the 5 & play Josh at the 4. Penny looked for excuses to not play Josh, but then played Emoni, who also struggled with those same lapses. Penny wasn’t committed to Josh & it was apparent. He’ll end up somewhere else & thrive…he’s just that kind of kid. On the bright side, we’ll get Malcolm back.

Could also slide Landers to the 2 guard instead of playing his son there at all. Who cares if he cant shoot, neither can his son.

Jayden shot 46% from 3. Josh shot 14%. Who is it that can't shoot?

Jayden played 229 minutes. Josh was at 483.

Pretty fuggin dumb comment.

Josh shot 14% from three, Jayden shot 46% from three.

Furthermore, Jayden didn't play any real significant minutes at the end of the year and his few double digit minute games were in blowouts or when half the team was injured/covidy.

Man I know about his %, he accomplished his best games against scrubs. Jayden was clearly never going to be a real factor against any good competition, thats why he had to stop playing him.

He was hurt.

Best of luck to him. I trust that if the staff thought he was NBA ready he would have had a lot more playing time.

I'm good. Just because someone has a lot of potential and is a joy to watch doesn't mean he fits with what we need, what we have, or what we are going to get.... in order to win. lol



Sending Josh much success on his way!

Bottom line.. Minott has great upside and potential to be a great pro.. Penny saw the potential in him, that's why he recruited him when none of you goofballs knew who he was.. but the players playing in front of him gave us a better chance to win.

Best of luck to Josh.. Great kid.

You think he was told he would be pigeonholed to pick up scrap minutes when Deandre gets tired or that he was offered a CHANCE to play multiple positions? I promise what Penny offered him to get him varied greatly from what he received when he got him. Thats the bottom line.

Only an idiot would pick Darius Washington as a moniker.

His father thought he was nba ready too. NOT!

Perhaps Penny thought they could help him develop a jump shot.

He didn't. He developed nicely but still needs work.

Poor defender with no jump shot.

That's the bottom line.

He says it won't be Memphis.

The caption is a tad misleading.

Read the article:
He said he has no plans to return to the Tigers. "I don't plan to need my eligibility," Minott said. "My work ethic and talent should be able to propel me to a standing in the draft I'm comfortable with."

He is saying he doesn't plan to return to college - and I don't think he will.
The headline implies that he might return to college, but it won't be Memphis. He did not say this at all.

I've said for a while that he is the 2nd most likely to leave the team, behind Duren. But there are whispers now that the door is not 100% shut at Memphis. I think he tests the waters and, since he wants pro ball so badly, he stays in the draft - even if he ends up in the G-league. But if Deandre were to leave, and if he gets feedback that he needs another year, Memphis is still an option.

LOL, I gained 25 lbs in boot camp. Of course I only weighed 135 when I went in. We were marched to the chow hall at 5:30 in the morning and forced to eat all the bacon, eggs, etc. we could eat. Towards the end I skipped several meals because I wasn't hungry and had ballooned to 160. Wish I weighed 160 now.

Maybe he has, but that’s not really what he said.

He says it won't be Memphis.

According to this quote from Steven Johnson of the Daily Memphian, he might return to Memphis.

https://dailymemphian.com/section/sports...-nba-draft

The article is not shown as Subscriber only, so you should be able to get it.

If he can get drafted now, fine. I know he and his family were frustrated, but imho he needs to develop his game more, and Penny should do all he can to get him to stay here. Great potential.

Good luck to him.
