Kentucky's PJ Washington declares for NBA draft


Kentucky's freshman forward PJ Washington has decided to make himself eligible for the NBA draft. But he says he will not hire an agent which would allow him to return to Kentucky next season.

Washington averaged 10.8 points and 5.7 rebounds this season. But he scored 18 points and grabbed 15 rebounds in the Cats' loss to Kansas State.

“After meeting with Coach Cal and talking through my situation, I am going to test the waters and see where I stand after my freshman year,” Washington tweeted. “I want the fans to know that I love school, I love this program and I love Kentucky. I’m not in a hurry to make any type of decision but Coach believes I should evaluate where I am right now.”
