Former Wisconsin basketball star Kobe King is trying to go pro.

According to Jon Chepkevich, King has signed with an agent and entered the draft pool for the G League, which serves as the feeder system to the NBA. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

It’s worth noting that King hasn’t played college basketball since January 2020. He abruptly left the Wisconsin Badgers, and hasn’t been seen much since.

Now, he’s trying to go pro.

I think I speak for Wisconsin fans everywhere when I say that we’re all hoping for the best for King. His departure from the Badgers was so strange.

He was having his best season in Madison, went scoreless against Purdue and never played college basketball again.

I honestly never thought he’d pick up a basketball and play again. Clearly, he’s intent on trying to earn some money playing ball.

Even though King, who 100% has NBA athleticism, left the Badgers when we were gearing up to win the B1G, which we did, I still want to see him have success.

You never cheer against somebody who once shared you colors. Let’s hope he gets it figured out!
