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!

Great Saturday morning film session with SEC Player of the Year and Kentucky standout Immanuel Quickley. One of the best shooters in the draft with a high IQ and strong compete level. Understands who he is as a player & knows how to add value in a variety of different situations. pic.twitter.com/f8VBIosOmt— Mike Schmitz (@Mike_Schmitz) May 2, 2020
This is really cool.
