Fantasy Impact:

Bailey, who is 23 years old, was a top-100 recruit going into Marquette in 2016. The Salt Lake City native decided to take a two-year Mormon mission in Washington prior to starting his collegiate career with the Golden Eagles. In his two-year career, Bailey averaged 5.1 points and 3.4 rebounds per game. He was expected to take a leap this year as a potential starter, but instead he’ll look ahead towards his professional basketball future. Based on mock drafts, Bailey is unlikely to be selected in the two-round NBA Draft, but could sign on with a summer league team or decide to take his talents overseas.
