LEXINGTON, Ky. (WYMT) - Another Wildcat is off to the NBA Draft.

Chris Livingston announced on Instagram on Wednesday that he is declaring for this season’s NBA Draft.

Livingston started in 26 game for Kentucky, averaging 6.3 points per game. He is not listed as a draft pick by many experts. He joins Cason Wallace, Jacob Toppin, Oscar Tshiebwe and Antonio Reeves as NBA prospects.

“I’m excited for Chris and his family to go through this part of the process on his journey,” UK head coach John Calipari said. “Coming in as a physical wing, Chris showed substantial growth as this season went on and proved to be a capable scorer, reliable defender and a relentless rebounder.”

According to a news release from UK, Livingston will maintain his college eligibility.
