Malik Monk declares for the NBA Draft

One day after De’Aaron Fox declared for the NBA Draft, Malik Monk has done the same thing. In a letter published in “The Players Tribune”, Monk made his intentions for the NBA Draft clear and issued a thank-you to several people, including Big Blue Nation.

Monk wrote:

“Kentucky fans made one thing crystal clear to me: They had my back. No one made me wait until the fall, until I got to Lexington, to be accepted into Big Blue Nation. Man, it was just right off the bat: Like, Once you’re one of us, you’re one of us. And whether it was defending me on social media … or sending me messages about how excited they were for me to come play there … or alums getting in touch and letting me know what an amazing experience was in store for me in the fall … it really helped a lot. It helped turn an extremely tough situation into an extremely positive one. And it helped me realize that, just by committing to Kentucky, I was already a part of something special.”
