Kentucky transfer Koby Brea has withdrawn from the NBA Draft and plans to play at Kentucky during the 2024-25 season, a source tells KSR+. Brea joins several other UK players to withdraw from the NBA Draft ahead of Wednesday night’s withdrawal deadline.

The 6-foot-6 guard spent the last four seasons at Dayton and will have one year of eligibility remaining. Brea earned A-10 Sixth Man of the Year last season after averaging 11.1 points, 3.8 rebounds, and 1.2 assists in 29.1 minutes per outing for the Flyers. He started four of 33 games played, shooting 51.2 percent from the field, an impressive 49.8 percent from deep (on 6.1 attempts per contest), and 87.5 percent from the line.

Brea is currently in Los Angeles training for a month to prepare for his time at Kentucky. A source tells KSR+ that he withdrew from the NBA Draft “a long time ago” and has planned to be with Kentucky since his commitment.
