Deng Adel announced his intentions to hire an agent and remain in the 2018 NBA draft. The news was widely announced on social media and by the Courier Journal who tweeted the below:
Not all that surprising that Adel is doing this. Seemed intent on pursuing a pro career before the season began. His guardian told me last week not to assume anything, but this was the assumption for a while. https://t.co/ieW3aMip0i

This comes as no surprise seeing that Adel tested the waters last season before deciding to come back. If he had chose to stay, Deng would be playing for his 3rd coach. Adel averaged 15.0 points along with 5.2 rebouds. Adel often struggled at times on defense and would also take questionable shoots.
At first glance, Adel does not appear in any mock drafts but hopefully he will generate some buzz. We here at TCZ wish Deng Adel the best going forward. Always a Card.
