For Trey, I think it is a no-brainer. As Martin Van Dawgin at H2H put it, "I don't think another season would drastically improve his stock in what will be a vastly deeper front court class next year." Trey would have to put up a
I have been working through the soundness of Travis' decision, though. Travis has more improvement upside, as I believe Trey is clearly NBA starter level talent now. Travis' flaws are hidden (and rightfully so) by his explosiveness in one on one situations and his prodigious highlight reel dunks. However, he'll be up against 6'7" forwards who eat guards for lunch in the NBA, so he'll need to learn that an assist is as important as a dunk when teams only have 24 seconds to score and 48 minutes in a game.
He improved that part of his game significantly this season:
As you can see, he has progressed from year to year. To give you a sense of where that puts him (16th in the conference), Dustin Ware lead the conference with a 2.9 A/T ratio. How important is that in the NBA? The guys you have heard the most about in the League (James, Durrant, Kidd, Paul, Gasol, Battier, Crawford) all have A/T's above 2.5. These players are the guys teams look to when they need points, because they all get their 17+ppg and help their team mates get their 17+ppg.
Travis is a very talented, potentially NBA level talented, basketball player. However, past drafts are littered with second round guys who were potential that didn't pan out. IF Travis improves his decision making, including knowing to pull up, trust his jump shot or dish to a teammate who has a higher percentage shot available, his decision will be validated.
Good luck to both of these DGDs.
