    Walker Kessler has also stated that he will take an official visit to Duke this fall, although I do not see a date set as of yet. Kessler has previously stated his intent to commit before the end of the year.
    I assume we will hear more soon about other top Duke targets, including Zaire Williams and DJ Steward.
    Updating this with the Kessler news now that we know his official visit date will be September 6th. Before visiting Duke, Kessler will be going to Michigan at the end of August. After Duke, the big man visits UNC (9/20-22) and then Gonzaga (10/4-6).

    Based on the official visits, it seems like Kessler could commit before November.

    Yeah, itís definitely not a done deal that the age minimum is going away in 2022, and the closer we get to that date without a decision being made, the less likely it seems that will happen. And while reclassifying might mean you avoid the double draft, it also means youíre a year younger when facing college level competition and thus more likely to struggle.

    The NBA CBA (collective bargaining agreement) runs thru the 23-24 season, but either side can opt out of the CBA after the 22-23 season.

    Basically if the OAD discussion doesn't gain traction and reach resolution soon, it'll be very tempting to just roll the OAD change (if it even happens) into the negotiations for the next CBA after expiration of the current one.
