Declares for 2017 NBA Draft

"After taking some time with my family and reflecting on this season, I have chose to enter my name into the 2017 NBA Draft", Monk said in a statement on the UK Athletics website.

Monk made 104 3-pointers on the season, not far behind Jodie Meeks' school record of 117. "Month by month I have grown and matured on and off the floor because of you guys".

One day after news of De'Aaron Fox's decision to enter the draft and hire an agent broke, Malik Monk has followed suit. "You guys made this the best year of my life, and you will always have a brother in me". With that said, the 6'2, 190-pound point guard was easily the brightest spot on the Wolfpack roster in averaging 18.1 points and 6.2 assists per game (in 34.8 minutes) and it was quite easy to see why Smith is universally seen as a top-10 player in this year's NBA Draft class. "What you saw from De'Aaron over the last month and a half of the season I think is what National Basketball Association teams will get for the future". "Although the season didn't end like we wanted it to, you gave me memories that will last a lifetime".

"With Malik you're talking about a superior athlete with skills and an ability to score that make him truly unique", Calipari said. "Throughout the season, they helped me grow as a player and as a person". Players have until 11:59 p.m. ET on April 23 to submit their names for the 2017 NBA Draft.

"I want to thank God for blessing me with this talent to play at this level". Monk finished with 12 points in the 75-73 loss.

Monk was named the SEC Player of the Year by the Associated Press this season and earned First-Team All-SEC and SEC All-Freshman Team honors.

Faced with the unenviable task of replacing 2016 Bob Cousy Point Guard of the Year award victor Tyler Ulis, Fox filled his shoes admirably this season and made his mark as one of the nation's fastest and craftiest players.

The NBA Draft Combine will take place May 9-14 in Chicago.

Fox is projected to be a lottery pick and undoubtedly boosted his draft stock during the 2017 NCAA Tournament.

Calipari is used to replacing one-and-done players, but there's no question that the Wildcats are losing a ton of production from this season's squad.
