ESPN’s list of the top NBA Draft prospects for 2019 was updated Thursday morning, and it now includes four Kentucky Wildcats among the top 50 players.
UK freshman Keldon Johnson remains the top Cat on the board at No. 10 overall, and he’s followed by sophomore forward PJ Washington at No. 20, well within first-round territory.
Further down the list are UK freshmen guards Tyler Herro (No. 40 overall) and Ashton Hagans (No. 43), both in positions that would put them in the middle of the second round of this year’s draft. No other UK players made the list, including post players EJ Montgomery and Nick Richards, two Wildcats who could be very important to the team’s 2019-20 roster if they decide to stick around for another season.
