Antonio Reeves, Kentucky guard, reveals future plans for 2023-24 season
Antonio Reeves was a key scorer and sharpshooter for Kentucky this season after transferring in from Illinois State. On Tuesday, Reeves announced what his plans are moving forward.
In a note on social media, Reeves announced he will be pursuing the NBA Draft but also maintaining his eligibility in the process:
“I’ve spent time thinking about what’s best for me and my future,” wrote Reeves. “I’ve determined that testing the waters and getting information back from the NBA is the best thing for me at this time. I’ve always dreamt of becoming a professional basketball player, and I am focused on fulfilling that dream but I’m keeping my options open.”

During the 2022-23 season, Reeves was second on the team in points per game with 14.4, trailing only Oscar Tshiebwe in scoring. He was also the team’s top 3-point shooting threat at right around 40% from deep and averaged 2.4 3-point field goals in a game.
While it’s a bit unclear what Reeves’ stock is for the NBA Draft, lethal threats from 3-point range are always in need for teams at the next level. If he does return, Reeves would provide the Wildcats with a key veteran piece heading into next season.
