PJ Washington’s Kentucky career is finished. The sophomore forward announced his intention to enter the NBA draft Tuesday.
Unlike a year ago when Washington tested the draft waters only to return to school, he plans to begin his professional career this year. “It’s been a little over a week since our season ended but it still hasn’t hit me that I’ve played my last game with Kentucky across my chest,” Washington said in a video posted to Twitter. “This place has been my home for two years and it’s hard for me to put in words how much I’ve grown in my time at Kentucky. The staff challenged me from day one to become the best version of myself and to work hard to become one of the best players in college basketball. I feel like I’ve done that.
