Kentucky starters to enter the draft

Quote:
Not even the most die-hard Kentucky fan — say, Ashley Judd — really thought Anthony Davis or the rest of the top players on Kentucky were coming back for another year.

That will become reality Tuesday when Davis (the lock No. 1 overall pick and likely franchise player) as well as Terrence Jones, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, Doran Lamb and Marquis Teague of Kentucky all will hold a joint press conference, at which each and each one is expected to declare for the NBA draft, as reported on NBC’s CollegeBasketballTalk.

Yes, Kidd-Gilchrist has repeatedly denied he was turning pro, but it would be a shock if the lock top five pick did not jump into the draft.

There’s a reason that these guys are all turning pro (and a reason Kentucky won the national title). DraftExpress in their current mock draft has Davis going No. 1, Kidd-Gilchrist No. 3, Jones No. 11, Teague No. 18 and Lamb early in the second round.

None of this is a surprise, this is how the John Calipari system works (see John Wall, DeMarcus Cousins, Eric Bledsoe, Brandon Knight, and we could go on and on). But this group is fully committed if they declare — the new (and silly) NCAA rule says that the last day to withdraw your name from consideration for the draft was April 10. The NBA says players have to April 29 to declare, but now once you are in you are in, there is no time to “test the waters.” (How is this the NCAA is looking after the student athletes? Oh, we’ll save that rant for another day.)

Re: Kentucky starters to enter the draft

All made the good decision except for teague cause he might fall to the second round... if he would have stayed for another season in KU I believe he would have been a lotto pick in 2013

Lamb did not make a good choice.

Re: Kentucky starters to enter the draft

Lamb is hella underrated. MKG has all the tools and measurables, Davis is great and so is Jones. But of all the UK games I watched Lamb might of been their best offensive player. Obviously when we talk about defense, size, and measurables, that's where he's gonna slide. He's probably average in all those categories.

Teague probably made the right decision to go unless he planned on staying all 4 years. As a sophomore, more scrutiny is gonna be on his game and with a talented guy like Harrow right behind him, you dont wanna get shown up by the new guy.

Lamb probably should have stayed another year, but he just won the championship and his name is hot so why not. He's a good shooter too, thats valuable.
