What if a player doesn't make himself eligible? When you're 22, you're eligible for the draft one way or another? You can get drafted very much against your will. What then?
And a college player can also choose to play in Europe instead of the NBA. Being drafted does not automatically make him an NBA player. Hell, Jennings could get drafted, decide he doesn't like the situation, and simply activate his player option with Lottomatica for another year, forcing a buyout eventually.
And again, NBA isn't the be-all and end-all.
