“I have to be smart and this decision hasn’t been easy, but I truly believe continuing on the course I’m on and getting fully healthy for the 2020-21 season is the right decision for me,” Oladipo told The Athletic.

Although this comes as a surprise, this may be the smartest decision Oladipo can make at this time. After all, he is coming off of an injury in which he ruptured the quad tendon in his right knee.
