Kentucky's Michael Kidd-Gilchrist will declare his intent to enter the 2012 NBA draft after the Wildcats' season ends, reports Chad Ford of ESPN.com.
Kidd-Gilchrist, a certain lottery pick if and when he enters the draft, told reporters last month that he intended to stay in school. However, according to Ford's sources, that stance has changed.
"He hopes he'll be able to announce right after they win the NCAA championship," one source said. "But even if they don't win it all, he's coming. He knows he's going to be a top-five pick. He can't pass that up."
