Two More Local Players Turning Pro

Jontay Porter & Lagerald Vick NBA Bound

April 06, 2018 - 6:12 am

Kansas junior guard Lagerald Vick is the latest local player testing the NBA draft.

Vick averaged 12.1 points per game this season.   Not hiring an agent initially allows the possibility of Vick returning.


Missouri freshman forward Jontay Porter also is declaring for the NBA Draft. 

Porter joins brother Michael in applying for the draft.   Michael is projected as a top pick while Jontay's projections aren't certain and not hiring an agent would allow him to come back.  Jontay Porter averaged 9.9 points and 6.8 rebounds in his freshman campaign, garnering co-Sixth Man of the Year honors in the SEC.
