EJ Montgomery officially signs with agent

When EJ Montgomery declared for the NBA Draft on April 15, 2020, his announcement made it clear he would be forgoing his remaining collegiate eligibility. Still, some held out hope, especially as the COVID-19 pandemic has continued to make the timeline for this year’s NBA season, next year’s NBA season and even the NBA Draft itself unclear.

Regardless, EJ Montgomery has not changed his mind. The former Cat has officially signed with an agent.

The Wasserman agency announced the news on Twitter on Friday, including Montgomery in its list of recent signees. The new class also includes Auburn’s Austin Wiley, Vanderbilt’s Saben Lee, Florida State’s Patrick Williams, Oregon’s Payton Pritchard, Oregon State’s Tres Tinkle and Gonzaga’s Ryan Woolridge.

    I have no personal information on EJ but he reminds me of a guy that plays basketball because he’s tall and not because he loves it. It seems like he, or the people that are advising him, are trying to force him into a situation where he’s not wanted. Best of luck to him.

    While I do agree EJ is receiving bad advice or made a poor decision to not return to school, I find it horrifying that many of the “fans” of UK think it is funny or a good idea to bash him online. I know most of you ended up EXACTLY where you wanted to be in life and NEVER made any stupid decisions of your own…but please take a momentous reflect before you post something complaining about a guy’s immaturity that only shows how immature you are.

    I wish him well, but I can’t see this being anything but a bad decision.

    He left knowing the NBA was never in the cards, at least not for a few years. He is there to make some cash overseas and then hit the G-League.
