Despite having a disappointing junior season Louisville swingman V.J. King has decided to go through the NBA Draft process.
Some basketball news: Louisville G/F VJ King has filed his paperwork to enter the NBA Draft. King, who will graduate this summer, will not hire an agent and will keep all options open.

Keeping all options open certainly leaves the opportunity for V.J. to return to Louisville for his final season of eligibility, don’t be surprised if we never see King in a Cardinal uniform again.
By going through the draft process King will receive feedback from the league and he’ll be able to workout for NBA teams if he receives an invitation. With only 60 NBA Draft Combine invitations available, I’d be highly shocked if King gets one.
King has until May 29th to decide if he will return to school or pursue the professional path.<
