Kentucky Basketball: Isaac Humphries To Hire Agent, Enter NBA Draft


Another member of the Kentucky basketball team is going pro.

On Wednesday, it was announced that Wildcats standout Isaac Humphries is set to declare for the 2017 NBA Draft. Humphries will hire an agent, ending his collegiate eligibility.

The sophomore said the following in a statement:

“First and foremost, I want to thank the Big Blue Nation for its unwavering support,” Humphries said. “Coming from Australia, I had no idea what to expect when I got to Kentucky, but you made me one of your own. Your support and passion over the last two years has been unbelievable. I can’t thank you enough for making me feel at home.

This decision didn’t come easily for me. My goal has always been to play professionally. There is no better place to prepare you to take that step than the University of Kentucky. Over the last two years, thanks to Coach Cal and the coaching staff, I’ve gotten so much better and improved my game. I believe I have a lot more I can do, but I also believe that the time for me to take the next step is now.”

Last season, the 7-foot forward averaged just 2.8 points, 2.8 rebounds and .2 assists per game.

Don’t expect to hear Humphries’ name called early.
