Tyrese Maxey has declared for the 2020 NBA Draft, leaving Kentucky after his freshman season.

"My thoughts were that we would be playing for a national championship (today)," Maxey told ESPN. "Although we're unable to do that due to what our country is experiencing, I felt like this was the day to declare for the draft to make it as special as I thought today would be."

Maxey is the No. 8 prospect in the ESPN Top 100.
