Unless something unforeseen happens, Marcus Lee's days with the Kentucky Wildcats are over.
The junior forward has made it clear thus far that the plan was for him to remain in the 2016 NBA Draft, and that hasn't changed. During a meeting with the media at the NBA Combine, Lee confirmed he's all but gone while sporting a new ;unique' hairstyle.
