TJ to the NBA (Catch the rhyme? No? Super.)

It's finally happened. C.L Brown of the Courier Journal tweeted that TJ has indeed hired an agent and will forego the rest of his college career, as he has hired an agent and is "all in". Would have been great to see him develop further, but does anybody else think Pitino was almost pushing him out the door? He never, ever said "I hope he leaves" but he certainly implied, on more than one occasion, that he had moved on and fully expected TJ to leave.

Part of my is extremely saddened, and part of me is extremely excited to see Dieng get so much playing time, with Chane as an extraordinary 6th man.
