I hate to sound like a buzz kill... However the talent gap between the NCAA and the NBA massively wide, even the international leagues in Europe and Australia have a lot of talent that they are developing with their own pipelines.   Are the realistic options for pro ball really better then playing college ball?  at least when you finish college ball you earn a degree.

Can't speak for any specific player, but I imagine some of these guys will settle for simply playing for a living, no matter what league/level.  The sooner the better.

If I could make a living playing a sport I love for a few years to delay the likely inevitable slow death my office work, I know I certainly would. Plus they get to live and travel in interesting places while they are young and on someone else’s dime. 
(I fortunately/unfortunately combined the exotic locales and slow bureaucratic death with my career. Life is about compromise, right?)
