After this week’s draft decisions, Kentucky’s 2018-19 roster is one step closer to being final. We’re still waiting on Ashton Hagans to reclassify and Stanford grad transfer Reid Travis to pick Kentucky over Villanova, but it’s a Friday, so let’s have some fun and pick our ideal starting lineups.
I’ll go first:
G: Ashton Hagans
G: Quade Green
G/F: Keldon Johnson
F: Reid Travis
F: PJ Washington
Obviously, this is contingent on Travis coming to Kentucky, but if he does, I like the idea of going small and playing both Travis and Washington. Depending on matchups, you can rotate EJ Montgomery and Nick Richards in for length and Tyler Herro and Jemarl Baker in for shooting. Immanuel Quickley can sub in for either Hagans or Green. There are so many directions you can go in with this roster, which is why next season is going to be so much fun.
Pick your starting five below and explain yourself in the comments.
