REPORT: EJ Montgomery will RETURN to Kentucky for sophomore season

EJ Montgomery will return to Lexington next year for a sophomore season with John Calipari and the University of Kentucky, according to NBA insider Adrian Wojnarowski.

It clearly came down to the wire, but Montgomery ultimately decided a second lap around Rupp Arena is the best move for himself and his future career.

Last season, the freshman averaged 3.8 points and 4.1 rebounds per game, while totaling 38 total blocks, 16 steals and 15 assists.

We still haven’t received any official news from Montgomery himself or from the University, but Woj typically knows what he’s talking about. We’ll have more as the story develops.

*UPDATE*

Jeff Goodman has also announced Montgomery’s pending return.

      This. I sure hope both he and Nick listened to the scouts and what they need to do to improve their game, then work hard this summer to do so. The biggest issue for both is foul trouble. Just don’t foul, play 20-25 minutes and put up some numbers.

  2. BANG BANG FARRR POW’RRR!!!

    Now let’s get Blackshear and wrap up the recruiting class.

    A 4-man rotation for the two PF/C spots:

    Richards
    Montgomery
    Sestina
    Blackshear

    We could use all 4.

      Nick: 18

    Blackshear would be a + but don’t count on it. EJ’s return is huge!

    People complaining about his return are the same folk that despise the one-and-done culture.

    A true win win… Both will benefit greatly from EJ’s return (UK possibly more than Montgomery). Good to see he is listening to the right people
