LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) — John Calipari says that every Kentucky player eligible to declare will submit their names for this year’s NBA draft.
Calipari posted tweets Wednesday saying Kentucky players of age will declare for the draft, though all may not attend the league’s invitation-only combine. Under new NCAA rules, players declaring for the draft can return to school if they don’t sign with an agent, have up to 10 days after the pre-draft combine to withdraw from consideration and can try out with an NBA team.READ MORE: MSU Police: Tip From Private Investigator Led To Discovery Of Body Believed To Be Brendan Santo
Guards Tyler Ulis and Jamal Murray and 6-foot-11 Skal Labissiere are considered likely draft choices, but Calipari said walk-ons will also declare. Freshmen Isaac Humphries and Tai Wynyard won’t because they will not turn 19 this year.READ MORE: Consumer Alert: How To Avoid Fake N95, KN95 Masks
