Seven Kentucky players declare for NBA draft

LEXINGTON, Ky. – An unprecedented seven Kentucky Wildcats announced they are declaring for the NBA draft at a press conference at the Joe Craft Center on Thursday.

Junior Willie Cauley-Stein, sophomores Andrew and Aaron Harrison and Dakari Johnson, and freshmen Devin Booker, Trey Lyles and Karl-Anthony Towns will forego their future eligibility at UK and put their names in the upcoming draft, to be held June 26 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.

Kentucky is coming off a record-setting season in which the Wildcats became the first team to post a 38-0 record. UK’s 38 victories tied the most in NCAA history, tying Calipari’s 2012 national championship team and his 2008 Memphis squad.

The Wildcats, who captured both the Southeastern Conference regular-season and tournament crowns, made it to the Final Four unblemished, the first team to accomplish that feat since UNLV in 1991.
