He definitely dropped into the 2nd round. Max guaranteed contracts are around 800K for a 2nd round pick. He bet on himself being able to increase his draft stock by coming back for a year and easily more than doubling that salary amount. This was absolute the best decision for his career at 18 years old. However, he had a season ending injury, things didn’t work out, and now he has to play the cards he was dealt.

But say he went to the nba last year, signed a 2 year contract and then tears his acl twice in the first year and never plays a game and won’t be able to until his 2 year contract expires. That scenario is almost the exact the same situation he’s in now, and in someways it’s worse.

I wish Jontay the best, but in the long run, he cost himself very little by coming back.
