"After getting the NBA experience and going through the evaluation process, I have talked with my family and Coach Painter and decided it is best for me to return for my junior year. Although the NBA is still a dream for me one day, I am coming back to Purdue to make next year a special one. Thank you to all the organizations who gave me the chance to not only showcase my talents, but also the chance to know me as a young man and not just an athlete," said Edwards.
This is not a surprise, as he was considered a longshot to be drafted this season. Edwards is on many top 100 lists for the 2017 NBA Draft, with most having him as a mid- to late-second round pick.
As for Caleb Swanigan, he will work out with Atlanta today and has stated he will finalize his decision tonight or tomorrow, with tomorrow being the deadline.
