Tuesday Headlines: Leonard Miller Day Edition

Leonard Miller looks poised to make the call on his plans for this fall.

NBA: Draft Combine David Banks-USA TODAY Sports

Good morning BBN. Here’s to hoping you’re coming off a wonderful three-day weekend!

Today is the day we’ll likely learn what 5-star forward Leonard Miller plans to do this fall. According to On3’s Joe Tipton, Miller will make an announcement on his future today at 4 pm ET today.

The top uncommitted prospect in the class of 2022, Miller could be the Kentucky Wildcats’ last chance of adding one more player for next season. However, most of the buzz surrounding Miller has been that he’ll be playing pro ball this fall, whether it be in the NBA G-League Ignite, or in the actual NBA if he keeps his name in the NBA Draft pool. Arizona is also in the running.

Whatever happens, it looks unlikely that Kentucky will be the choice for Miller.
