On Sunday, Louisville guard Donovan Mitchell and wing Deng Adel both said they hadn’t given it much consideration. Mitchell, a sophomore, is a projected late-first-round NBA draft pick in the latest DraftExpress.com mock draft; Adel, also a sophomore, improved his stock late in the season but hasn’t been featured in 2017 mock drafts. “Not at all,” Mitchell said. “I’m just focusing on coming back to school and getting ready for my teammates for next year.” Adel said, ”I haven’t thought of that at all right now. I was just focused on today, focused on the team. It hurts to lose in the second round, but I just have to go back in the lab, work on my game with my teammates. As for my future, I’m not too concerned about it right now.” Both players expect to have their end-of-season meetings with U of L coach Rick Pitino early this coming week. ►RELATED: Michigan edges U of L in NCAA Tournament ►READ MORE: Source: Fair to replace Balado on U of L staff Mitchell, a 6-foot-3 combo guard, caught the eye of NBA scouts with his surge in 3-point shooting in ACC play, making 38.7 percent of his shots from long range. He also showed he can play some point guard, his likely professional position, when U of L junior point Quentin Snider was sidelined with a hip injury. But Mitchell struggled toward the end of the season, mired in a shooting slump. It’s unclear what kind of impact that will have on his status. Mitchell’s mother, Nicole, also said last week that they would meet as a family and discuss all of the pros and cons of staying in school vs. testing the NBA draft waters. Anas Mahmoud, U of L’s 7-foot center who emerged this season as an intriguing pro prospect, said his father wants him to finish his bachelor’s degree but would support him either way. That said, the junior acknowledged he hadn’t thought about it all. “I already can’t wait (for next season),” Mahmoud said. ►SEE ALSO: Instant Analysis: Michigan 73, Louisville 69 ►MORE COVERAGE: Deng Adel dunks on Michigan player ►RELATED: Adel, Mahmoud, Mitchell quiet on NBA decision FacebookTwitter Google+ LinkedIn March Madness l Louisville suffers season ender to Michigan in NCAA  Fullscreen Post to Facebook Posted!
