0 Comments

Kentucky freshman Malik Monk is heading to the NBA. He will sign with an agent which puts an immediate end to his college career.

Monk, an All-American, announced his decision through a letter posted on The Player’s Tribune on Tuesday morning. This comes one day after fellow freshman guard De’Aaron Fox declared for the draft.

The 6-foot-3 Monk averaged 19.8 points, 2.5 rebounds and 2.3 assists per game while shooting 45 percent from the field and 40 percent from three. A remarkable scorer, Monk dropped 47 points in a win over North Carolina in December.

Monk is a projected lottery pick with the chance of being selected within the first five picks.
