Shaedon Sharpe selected by Trail Blazers, first Kentucky player not to enter NBA draft | Sports

LEXINGTON, Ky. — Shaedon Sharpe was the first former Kentucky player to be selected in the NBA Draft on Thursday night when the Portland Trail Blazers selected him with the seventh overall pick.

The former No.1-ranked basketball signing joined the UK mid-season but never adapted to the team. He intended to play for Kentucky this fall, but had to change those plans when draft comments indicated he would be a first-round pick.
