Kentucky Guard Davion Mintz To Return For Final Season

UK Athletics

 Guard Davion Mintz will withdraw from the NBA draft and return to Kentucky for his final season after leading the Wildcats in several offensive areas as a graduate transfer.


Mintz went through the evaluation process and said he felt ‘ready and closer’ to his goal of playing in the NBA but wanted another season at Kentucky to prove he’s ready for the highest level. The 6-foot-3 Mintz led the Wildcats with 11.5 points per game, 56 3-pointers and 77 assists after transferring from Creighton last year.
