Lagerald Vick will be playing basketball somewhere next season, and it won’t be in the NBA.
According to a report from Gary Bedore of KansasCity.com, Vick withdrew his name from the NBA draft just prior to deadline, and is now weighing his options, whether that means returning to Kansas or pursuing a G-League opportunity.
Lagerald Vick's mom tells me he pulled his name out of the NBA Draft this week before the deadline. She said he is open to many things. She mentioned G League or returning to college. He will not play overseas, she said.

As a junior, Vick started 35 of 39 games for the Jayhawks, in which he averaged career highs with 12.1 points, 4.8 rebounds and 2.1 assists per game through Kansas’ Final Four run.
Should Vick ultimately elect to return to Kansas for a fourth and final season, he’d do so as a veteran presence on a new-look perimeter as the Jayhawks will replace Devonté Graham, Svi Mykhailiuk, and Malik Newman with 5-star All-American guards Devon Dotson and Quentin Grimes, and Cal transfer Charlie Moore.
