With the No. 29 pick in the 2019 NBA Draft, the San Antonio Spurs select Keldon Johnson out of the University of Kentucky.
It was initially reported that the Cleveland Cavaliers were going to select Johnson at No. 26, but the franchise pivoted at the last second, selecting Dylan Windler out of Belmont instead.
Either way, Johnson has finally found his destination and is the third Wildcat to be drafted in the first round, joining PJ Washington (Hornets) and Tyler Herro (Heat).
The former Wildcat averaged 13.5 points and 5.9 rebounds during his one year in Lexington. This is the team I wanted Johnson to find his way to from the jump. It just took a bit longer than expected for him to get there. This is the perfect situation for Johnson to begin his NBA career.
Another NBA Draft, another group of Kentucky players moving on to the pros. Rinse and repeat.
