Kentucky’s Goodwin to Enter Name in NBA Draft; Cauley-Stein, Wiltjer to Return; No Word on Poythress
Kentucky sure is going to have one crowded frontcourt next season.
The school announced Monday that freshman big man Willie Cauley-Stein and sophomore forward Kyle Wiltjer will both return to campus, while freshman guard Archie Goodwin will enter his name in the NBA Draft but won’t hire an agent.
Freshman big man Nerlens Noel has yet to announce his plans, but is projected as the No. 1 pick by most people. Fellow frosh Alex Poythress has yet to announce his plans and is said to be collecting information.
DraftExpress.com currently projects Poythress as the No. 16 pick this year, and Goodwin as No. 18.
“I think Goodwin is going to go 12-22 based on upside and potential, nothing to do with the way he played this year at Kentucky,” one veteran NBA scout told SNY.tv.
