PJ Washington Jason Marcum - Sea of Blue

It is finally time for the 2019 NBA Draft.

Tonight, at least three Kentucky Wildcats’ lives will forever change as they hear their name called in the 2019 NBA Draft at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.

PJ Washington, Tyler Herro, and Keldon Johnson are all expected to be first-round selections with Washington the most likely to be taken in the lottery.

Herro has impressed in private workouts with teams, enough that there’s now a real chance he sneaks into the end of the lottery. It also sounds like Johnson will be selected within the first 18 picks.

There’s also an outside chance Reid Travis could be a second-round selection, but this is unlikely.

Regardless, it will be another night for John Calipari and the Big Blue Nation to celebrate some of their own achieving their dream of making it to the NBA.
