UK Fans of the Day want a 5 p.m. EJ Montgomery Update

Good afternoon — err, evening, my pals. It’s 5 p.m. in the Eastern Time Zone and there’s still no word on whether EJ Montgomery will keep his name in the NBA Draft or return to Kentucky for a sophomore season.

EJ has until 11:59 p.m. tonight to decide, so we’ve probably still got plenty of waiting ahead of us, but if you’re like me, you need a nibble of news to keep you from passing out on your keyboard. It’s not much, but at the SEC Spring Meetings in Destin, John Calipari said he’s also still in the dark about EJ’s decision.

I told you it’s not much, but hey, it’s all we’ve got until EJ talks or Ashton Hagans does an Instagram Live. (Ashton, seriously, where you at?)

      Agreed. No reason to drag this out unless he is just milking the clock so he can get his affairs in order before heading out of Lexington. I bet he’s already packed and gone. His frame and high school pedigree is enough for a number of teams to promise at least a shot as a 2-way contract. Guys make between $80-350K under that rule. Plus roster spots 11-15 on most every NBA team are always in flux and it is beneficial to take a flyer on a kid that size with his athleticism since he will come at such a bargain. Sad to say this is how it is now. I will be very surprised if he stays. However, if he bets on himself and blows up next year into a top 20 pick, he stands to make tens of millions more by waiting versus giving teams a discount for taking a chance now. Tough call unless you are uber-confident in your ability to become a true NBA-caliber player.

    I say he’s gone judging by how hard cal is pressing to get N’faly Dante to reclassify to ’19.

      And we won’t get him. Kansas and LSU are recruiting him; two of the biggest cheaters in collegiate sports, and it’s business as usual.
