Kentucky Wildcat basketball players Karl-Anthony Towns, Willie Cauley-Stein, Devin Booker, Trey Lyles, Dakari Johnson, Andrew Harrison and Aaron Harrison announced Thursday that they will all enter the 2015 NBA Draft. Per ESPN:
The losses account for 85 percent of Kentucky's scoring from this past season and 77 percent of its rebounding.
"If Alex Poythress doesn't get hurt, it would've been eight," coach John Calipari said, referring to the junior forward who sustained a season-ending torn knee ligament in December.
Kentucky is left with freshman point guard Tyler Ulis and athletic forward Marcus Lee. Poythress is still weighing his options, according to Calipari. Ulis should step into the starting role, but Lee's role is up in the air with another strong recruiting class coming into Lexington.
The NBA draft is June 25.
