Overview

Montgomery came in with a lot of hope and promise but had a disappointing college career, never really getting it going in his time at Kentucky.

He’s a big, fluid forward with the makings of an NBA frame but so far his skill level and on court production has yet to catch up.

He’s solid in a lot of areas but doesn’t really stand out in any one. He’s a good defender (most of the time) and runs the court well.

He’s not much of a one on one scorer and isn’t really a threat shooting from outside.

Despite the slow start he’s got a chance to develop and work his way back into the NBA draft picture. Or, more likely, he’ll go undrafted and spend a few more years trying to work his way into the league.
