Whitney is still debating between transferring or entering the NBA Draft.

Two months after shockingly stepping away from the Kentucky Wildcats after just half a season, former McDonald's All-American Kahlil Whitney still does not know his next move.

Evan Daniels reports that Whitney has yet to make a decision on whether he will declare for the 2020 NBA Draft or if he will transfer to a new school.

Whitney did say, ”I’ve been working extremely hard on my game these last couple of months just focusing on getting better, stronger and staying healthy.”

After starting the season in the Wildcats starting lineup, Whitney’s struggles resulted in limited playing time. He averaged just 12.8 minutes per game in which he scored 3.3 points per game with 1.7 rebounds and 0.4 assists.

With the NBA Draft process likely to consist of limited in-person workouts and meetings due to the coronavirus outbreak, it seems there is now more of a chance Whitney transfers, though he could opt to go pro overseas if not given a chance in the NBA.
