SEC Underclassmen who have Declared for the NBA Draft

The cancellation of the NCAA Tournament has forced underclassmen to consider their basketball futures much quicker than expected. They must answer the question, do I want to return and complete unfinished business or do I need to cash a check now as uncertainty looms? Many have already made the difficult decision.

John Calipari said over the weekend that five Kentucky Wildcats will test the NBA Draft waters. He did not provide specifics, but we all know who he’s talking about: Quickley, Richards, Hagans, Maxey and Montgomery. Each player can hire an agent and still retain eligibility if they withdraw their name from the process by June 3, a deadline many are pushing to delay.
