The NBA Draft process continues to change, and it’s particularly unique this year in light of the COVID-19 pandemic and the delays in the NBA’s schedule. And one player going through this unique process right now is Michigan’s Isaiah Livers, who decided to join PBC’s recent breakdown of his chances for the 2020 NBA Draft. It’s certainly not something you would have seen in years past, but it’s worth a watch.
You can see the full breakdown here:

Livers has played three seasons so far in Ann Arbor and averaged an impressive 12.9 points, 4.0 rebounds, and 1.1 assists per game in limited time last season. He was a massive threat from three-point range, connecting on 40.2 percent of his attempts there last year. Livers would likely project as Michigan’s best returning player next season if he decides to return to Michigan and forego the NBA Draft.
Given his injury history over the last two years, it’s hard to evaluate Livers’ Draft status at the moment. And things have gotten even more complex with COVID-19 and limited workouts available for NBA teams. All told, it will be interesting to see what ends up happening for the Livers moving forward.
