NBA draft expert Sam Vecenie of The Athletic fame released a new update of his NBA Draft Big Board 19 this morning, and in it, you will find four Kentucky Wildcats among the top 100 NBA prospects this summer.
I won’t spoil the whole board for you because Vecenie and his website require a small monthly payment to digest their stories, but I will tell you the four Wildcats are PJ Washington, Keldon Johnson, Tyler Herro and Ashton Hagans. Reid Travis did not make the cut.
Washington is the highest rated of the Wildcats; Vecenie has him slotted at No. 14, a potential lottery pick this summer. Johnson is next at No. 18, followed by Herro at No. 22. Hagans is outside the top 50.
