The draft is still scheduled for June 25 in Brooklyn, New York. But with the 2019-20 season suspended indefinitely, with no return in sight due to COVID-19, it’s uncertain when any NBA events will take place.1

“It’s very confusing. I just been taking it day by day and trying not to worry about that,” Maxey, 19, told The Undefeated. “What you try to worry about right now is cherishing these moments with your family and also work on yourself, work on your body, work on things that you need to work on before you step in front of these NBA teams.”

Maxey averaged 14 points, 4.3 rebounds and 3.2 assists per game in his lone season at Kentucky. ESPN ranks the Dallas native as the eighth-best prospect in the draft.new nike nfl jerseys cheap
