UK's Johnson Enters NBA Draft, Hires Agent
By The Associated Press
LEXINGTON - Kentucky guard Keldon Johnson will enter the NBA draft and hire an agent but is keeping open the option of returning to school.

The 6-foot-6 Johnson follows teammate PJ Washington in entering the draft. He has until May 29 to decide on coming back for his sophomore season with the Wildcats.

Kentucky's No. 3 scorer and rebounder was selected by Southeastern Conference coaches as freshman of the year and a second team All-SEC choice. He averaged 13.5 points and 5.9 rebounds per game.

Johnson, who is from South Hill, Virginia, says in a statement that after talking with his family and coach John Calipari, getting information from the NBA "is the best thing for me at this time." Calipari says he supports Johnson "whatever he decides."
