One current Kentucky Wildcat is working out with a former one during the NBA Draft process.

This morning, former Kentucky star Tony Delk posted a picture on Instagram with freshman forward EJ Montgomery, saying he is “training and advising” the 6-foot-11 big man.

This comes just one day after Montgomery posted on his own Instagram story that he was in San Antonio working out for the Spurs:

As for Montgomery’s current Kentucky teammate and the other Wildcat with an NBA Draft decision to make, Nick Richards, he posted an individual workout of his own on his Instagram story:

Montgomery and Richards both have until May 29 to withdraw from the NBA Draft and retain their college eligibility.

For Richards, the general consensus is that he will be returning to school for a junior season, while Montgomery’s situation still remains fuzzy.

We’ll find out for certain either way in just five days (at most).

    Don’t say anything but good coming from this. As an alum, Delk wants to see nothing but the best for the program and those who come from it, and the best for EJ I’m the opinion of many is to come back for a 2nd year

      TD is a good man, always friendly and smiling and one of my favorite Wildcats.

      Don’t forget Delk came back and worked under Cal as “assistant director of basketball operation” so he presumably has a good relationship with the coaching staff.

    Hope he comes back. We need him. I think he could have a breakout year.

      All of these kids should go to Murray State. Seems like it is every year that they have a top pick in the nba draft.

    EJ really seems to want to hear just a possibility of getting drafted. I hope, if he doesn’t, he follows after PJ’s example and makes the best of it instead of coming back begrudgingly.
