The University of Kentucky has called a press conference for Brandon Knight this morning at 10:15am. Knight is expected to announce he is going to remain in the NBA draft.
According to John Calipari in a recent ESPN article by Andy Katz, Knight “got the confirmation that he wanted.”
Knight is expected to be a lottery pick and potentially could slide into the top 5 depending on the draft lineup.
Update: Brandon Knight has officially announced he will stay in the NBA draft. He made an interesting point that he sees himself as a point guard. It has been mentioned in the past that Knight might stay in the draft because he did not want to concede the point to Marquis Teague next season and slide over to the 2 guard role.
