Kentucky's EJ Montgomery is the latest Wildcat to announce he will declare for the NBA Draft.

Montgomery can sign with an NCAA-certified agent, but he can still return to school if he cuts ties and withdraws by May 29.

The 6-foot-10 freshman averaged 3.8 points and 4.1 rebounds per game in 37 games last season. He averaged 15 minutes per game.

Montgomery got a double-double in Kentucky's 76-48 win over South Carolina, and he received increased playing time when PJ Washington and Reid Travis battled injuries late in the year.

EJ Montgomery is not projected to be a first-round pick.
