1. What will Bill Self do if Johnny Furphy stays in the draft?

Furphy is a projected first-round pick this summer and could wind up being a one-and-done at Kansas. Assuming he enters the draft and does not pull his name out of the pool by the deadline, Kansas will miss a source of outside shooting and length on the wing.

5-star recruit and Indiana decommit Liam McNeeley is interested in Kansas, but a freshman might not be the immediate solution. Coach Self can dive into the transfer portal to search for a 3-and-D wing or even move Kugel to the three alongside Dajuan Harris and Mayo.

Replacing Furphy's outside shooting could be difficult, especially when looking at how poorly the Jayhawks shot from three this year. It will be interesting to see Self's backup plan if Furphy departs.
