Sunday Quickies: EJ Montgomery Signs with Agent Edition

New, 2 comments

Montgomery is preparing for his professional career

NCAA Basketball: Kentucky at Florida Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

We knew that EJ Montgomery was foregoing his remaining eligibility to enter the NBA Draft, but that became official when Wasserman announced that the company signed Montgomery.

Montgomery is hoping to carve out a role in the NBA although most mock draft projections do not project him to be among the 60 picks in the draft. Of course, that doesn’t mean that Montgomery can’t latch onto a team or work his way through the G-League.

At Kentucky, we have to accept that very few players will stay beyond two years. Obviously most all of us hoped to see EJ return as a key frontcourt piece on a team that has a lot of freshman talent coming in, but EJ is ready to try to make it as a professional.

Best of luck to him!
