Carr, a team captain, has been having daily communication with Gophers coach Richard Pitino. He also has been in touch with the incoming players. In other words, he’s been acting as if he’ll be back.

But on the other hand, he set a new school record with 207 assists in a season. He also started every game and led the Big Ten in minutes played, while finishing second in the conference in assists and eighth in scoring. Quite frankly, he had a sensational season, and it’s possible his NBA stock is peaking right now.

The obvious compromise could be to get feedback from teams via Zoom chats, while returning to the ‘U’ and working on what executives advise. The NBA Draft advisory board told Carr he’s a borderline second round pick, but could also go undrafted. So another good and injury-free year for the Gophers, and his stock could climb.
