Early NBA Draft Entrants Taking A Risk Last year, the hopes of Florida basketball revolved around the offseason acquisition of graduate transfer forward Kerry Blackshear Jr. and a top-10 recruiting class. This year, the Gators’ hopes will center around two key returning players. Florida welcomed back Scottie Lewis last week after the freshman announced he was putting his NBA dreams on hold for a sophomore return, due in part because of draft uncertainty related to the coronavirus pandemic. Tuesday, the Gators got even better news: leading scorer Keyontae Johnson is following Lewis’ lead and putting draft dreams on the back burner to make another run as a junior next season at Florida. “I can’t wait to get back and play with my brothers again next season!” he said on Twitter. “We’ve got unfinished business & the Gators will be ready to go.” I can’t wait to get back and play with my brothers again next season!
