Kentucky freshman Kevin Knox II spent Easter weekend mulling his basketball future and could decide as early as Monday night whether to declare for the NBA draft according to his father, Kevin Knox Sr.
"We're going to make a decision real quick," Knox Sr. said. "It could happen as soon as (Monday night) but no later than Friday."
On Monday, the family talked with Wildcats coach John Calipari and his staff about Knox II's potential plans.
Knox II, a former standout at Tampa Catholic, has always had a goal of being a one-and-done, the term for a player who leaves college after one season to enter the NBA draft.
As a freshman, Knox II led the team in scoring with 15.6 points per game. He is projected as a first-round selection with many mock drafts pegging him as a lottery pick.
Still, it is no guarantee Knox II will bolt for the pros.
During the NCAA tournament, Knox Sr. said his son raved about his time with the Wildcats.
Part of the family's process is to see where Knox II will be selected and whether he has developed enough after one season in college to be ready for the NBA.
Whatever decision is made will be final.
"If Kevin goes, he is going," Knox Sr. said. "If he stays, he stays. We're not exploring options. This is it."
