Wednesday is the deadline for players to decide whether they’re staying in the 2019 NBA Draft or returning to school.
After using up all of that time going through the pre-draft process, Kentucky F EJ Montgomery has reportedly reached a final decision.
Per ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, the rising sophomore forward will return to Kentucky for the 2019-20 season:

That’s a big boost for the Wildcats, and it’s great that Montgomery had the chance to go through the draft process and make the decision that was best for him.
Montgomery appeared in 37 games for the Wildcats as a freshman, starting 10 of them. He averaged 3.8 points and 4.1 rebounds in 15.1 minutes per contest.
