**UPDATE** Due to unforeseen travel arrangements and academic schedules, the men's basketball press conference originally scheduled for 2 p.m. has been moved to 7 p.m.

On Monday, it was announced that a men's basketball press conference has been scheduled for Tuesday at 7 p.m. Anthony Davis, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, Terrence Jones, Marquis Teague, Doron Lamb and John Calipari will all address the media, with Kentucky's five underclassmen likely to make their NBA Draft intentions public.

Since UK won the national championship game on April 2, the five have been weighing their professional options with the help of Calipari. Coach Cal advised them to abide by the NBA's early-entry deadline of April 29.

WKYT will be broadcasting the press conference live in Lexington and we will have a live stream here on UKathletics.com.

On Monday night, Davis and Calipari were in Oklahoma City for a ceremony during which he received the Wayman Tisdale Award as the top freshman in the country. Jeff Latzke of the Associated Press caught up with both, so check out this story with quotes from each about Tuesday's decision.

While we await the announcement, let's take a look at where the five as well as senior Darius Miller rank among this year's draft class according to ESPN and Draft Express:

  • Davis - No. 1 ESPN, No. 3 Draft Express
  • Kidd-Gilchrist - No. 2 ESPN, No. 3 Draft Express
  • Jones - No. 8 ESPN, No. 11 Draft Express
  • Teague - No. 25 ESPN, No. 18 Draft Express
  • Lamb - No. 29 ESPN, No. 33 Draft Express
  • Miller - No. 42 ESPN, No. 35 Draft Express
