Reid Travis’ father comments on his son’s NBA Draft stock

Reid Travis’ father comments on his son’s NBA Draft stock

The fifth-year grad transfer wasn’t invited to the combine and is expected to go undrafted. Three former Kentucky Wildcats are very likely to hear their name called in the first round of June’s NBA Draft. PJ Washington, Tyler Herro, and Keldon Johnson are all projected to be selected early despite their limited time in college. Even EJ Montgomery might be a late second-round pick if he stays in. However, Reid Travis, a fifth year senior, is not expected to be drafted. Travis obviously chose to transfer to Kentucky with hopes of better preparing himself for a professional career and...

NBA Mock Draft roundup for the Wildcats

NBA Mock Draft roundup for the Wildcats

Several mock drafts have PJ projected as a lottery pick. The NBA Draft order is set following the lottery results on Tuesday. The New Orleans Pelicans will be picking No. 1 overall, but it appears Anthony Davis is still set on being traded sooner rather than later. What about former Kentucky Wildcats set to hear their names called in this year’s draft? The latest round of mock drafts has PJ Washington, Keldon Johnson and Tyler Herro scattered across the first round, with Washington consistently going first among the three. Sports Illustrated has Washington landing with the Boston Celtics...

NBA Draft Lottery revealed

NBA Draft Lottery revealed

Three Wildcats now have more of an idea of where they might land. The 2019 NBA Draft Lottery is in the books. Both PJ Washington and Tyler Herro were in attendance as one of the most shocking NBA lotteries in NBA history took place. We now know who Duke superstar Zion Williamson will likely suit up for, as the New Orleans Pelicans landed the first overall pick in the draft. Also stunning was the Los Angeles Lakers and the Memphis Grizzlies defying the odds and jumping into the top four. For Washington, Herro and Keldon Johnson, they now may have a better idea of a potential landing...

Where the Wildcats stand in new ESPN mock draft

PJ continues to be projected just outside the top 10 picks. NBA Draft season will really heat up this week when the Draft Lottery takes place Tuesday, followed by the NBA Combine. The next few weeks will go a long way in determining where former Kentucky Wildcats PJ Washington, Keldon Johnson and Tyler Herro will hear their names called in the 2019 draft, while also determining ‘if’ Nick Richards and EJ Montgomery will be drafted at all. Ahead of the Draft Lottery, ESPN has released a new NBA Mock Draft, and it features three Wildcats going within the first 22 picks. First up is...

New mock draft has 3 Cats in top 20 and PJ Washington rising

These guys absolutely made the right decision in leaving early. We are just a little over a month away from the NBA Draft. And while a lot can change between now and then, there are three Kentucky Wildcats that should be thrilled with where they stand at this point. As long as they perform well at the draft combine, they are in line to make a lot of money. The latest mock draft by NBC Sports has three Wildcats being selected in the top 20, and it seems to fit in with the feedback they received before officially committing to the NBA. Also, this mock is simply projecting which pick that...

No EJ Montgomery on NBA Combine list; also not on G-League Elite Camp list

No EJ Montgomery on NBA Combine list; also not on G-League Elite Camp list

Nick RIchards was also left on both rosters. Last week, word came down that four Kentucky Wildcats were invited to the NBA Draft Combine: PJ Washington, Keldon Johnson, Tyler Herro and EJ Montgomery. The latter was a bit of surprise, given that there’s usually around 60-70 combine invites per year, and most projections have Montgomery going undrafted. Turns out, Montgomery did not receive an invite, according to the list that the NBA released today: The NBA officially announces the 66 players invited to the NBA Combine in Chicago pic.twitter.com/1o2U0XShtk— Jonathan Givony...

A select few of Kentucky Wildcats who have entered the NBA draft will be heading to Chicago, IL for the 2019 NBA Combine. With the 2019 NBA draft approaching, four Kentucky Wildcats from this past season have received invitations to this year’s NBA Draft Combine. According to the Lexington Herald-Leader, Keldon Johnson, PJ Washington, EJ Montgomery and Tyler Herro will stand alongside the country’s finest prospects who are eligible for the draft. The Herald-Leader adds that Washington, Johnson and Herro will skip the five-on-five games, but Montgomery will take part in them....

EJ Montgomery will test NBA Draft waters

Montgomery wants to know where he stands in NBA Draft. The next in this long line of college basketball announcements has come from Kentucky freshman EJ Montgomery. Montgomery has officially stated that he plans to test the NBA Draft waters, but he can still return for next season with the Kentucky Wildcats. Montgomery started the 2018-2019 season a little behind after sitting out the summer Bahamas tour. Although PJ Washington and Reid Travis laid claim to the majority of the minutes, Richards balled-out and showed himself to be a good bench option for the front court. It took most of...

The 2019-2020 UK Basketball roster as it stands

Kentucky has a goos roster, but could add one or two more players With the recruiting period winding down and players from last seasons team making their NBA decisions, the 2019-2020 Kentucky Wildcats roster is shaping up to be yet another good one. PJ Washington, Tyler Herro, and Keldon Johnson have all announced their intentions to stay in the NBA Draft. Reid Travis is a senior (and is also heading to the NBA), and Jemarl Baker announced his intentions to transfer from Kentucky. So where does that leave the Wildcats in terms for next season’s roster? UK is losing over 60% of its...

PJ Washington breaks the “One & Done” mold

PJ Washington breaks the “One & Done” mold

PJ’s impact will hopefully leave a lasting legacy. Not long after Kentucky’s season ended, PJ Washington declared for the NBA Draft and gave up what is left of his college eligibility. As a player who turned down the draft a season ago and returned to college to improve his game, PJ has become a shining example and has set a new precedent for players coming back to school to improve their stock. When Washington arrived at UK in 2017, he seemed to be a near lock as another one-and-done in John Calipari’s NBA machine. Over his 10 years in Lexington, Calipari has sent 35 players into...
