Five UK basketball players announce plans to enter NBA Draft

Five stars on this year's UK basketball team, who helped the Cats win their 8th national title, have announced they will enter the NBA Draft.

Terrence Jones, Anthony Davis, Doron Lamb, Marquis Teague, and Michael Kidd-Gilchrist announced their intentions during a news conference Tuesday night.

Most experts have Davis as a number one draft pick.

Kidd-Gilchrist has been predicted to be a second or third pick.

Experts have Jones being selected between 11th and 20th.

Some mock drafts have Lamb as high as 18th.

The five Cats who are leaving were responsible for 93.3 percent of UK's shots, 94.5 percent of the rebounds, and 96.2 percent of the assists.
