Yet another Kentucky basketball player is going pro, after Isaiah Briscoe announced he is set to enter the 2017 NBA Draft. Unlike some of his teammates, Briscoe will not be eligible to return to the Wildcats because he has decided to hire an agent.
Briscoe averaged 10.9 points, 5.4 rebounds and 3.7 assists during his two seasons at Kentucky.
Briscoe joins De’Aaron Fox, Malik Monk and Bam Adebayo as Wildcats standouts to make the move from Lexington to the NBA.
“BBN, thank you to the greatest fans in the entire world,” Briscoe said in a statement. “Thank you to Coach Cal, Coach KP (Kenny Payne), Coach Tony (Barbee), Coach JJ (Joel Justus), Coach Robes (John Robic), and (strength and conditioning coach) Rob (Harris). You helped me develop my game on the court and helped me grow as a man off the court.
“Thank you to my brothers. We’ve been through so much together and accomplished even more. Thank you to my family and friends. Without your support, I wouldn’t be where I am now. It was a dream to play in front of BBN and an honor to wear K-E-N-T-U-C-K-Y across my chest. I’m ready for the next step and can’t wait to begin the next journey.”
The NBA Draft is June 22.
