Former Wildcats on list of potential NBA Draft Combine invitees

New, 14 comments

One Wildcat who’s leaving for the pros did not get an invite.

Montgomery, Richards Drew Brown - Sea of Blue

It remains unclear if there will be a 2020 NBA Draft Combine. But in the event there is, the NBA is now sending out invites to prospects for the combine, according to Adam Zagoria of Zags Blog.

105 invitations went out, and five former Kentucky Wildcats made the list: Tyrese Maxey, Immanuel Quickley, Ashton Hagans, Nick Richards, and even Kahlil Whitney.

However, EJ Montgomery was not on the list. So if there is a combine, it looks like Montgomery won’t a chance to attend it and potentially boost his nonexistent NBA stock.

It’s unfortunate Montgomery has already signed with an agent and can’t return to school, even if it was a school other than UK. Then again, maybe he was simply ready to be done with school and start making a living now, even if it ends up being overseas somewhere.

Hopefully, it works out for him.
