If I were Gillis though I'd really like to see White turn pro so he can develop with the Moose.
The CBA says that once a college player announces their intention to turn pro, their team has 30 days to sign them or they become an unrestricted free agent. A player can turn pro at any time though, so it doesn't have to be after a full 4 years at college.
