LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) Kentucky freshman Bam Adebayo will hire an agent and stay in the NBA draft. He is the fifth Wildcat to leave school for the June draft.
The 6-foot-10 forward had left open the possibility of returning for his sophomore season. He had announced on April 5 he would not hire an agent, but on Tuesday said in a statement it's in his "best interest to remain in the draft."
In heading to the draft he joins four teammates: freshman guards Malik Monk and De'Aaron Fox and sophomores Isaiah Briscoe and Isaac Humphries.
