Logan Johnson – G – Saint Mary’s – 6-foot-2 – 170lbs

Saint Mary’s guars Logan Johnson is more in line with the vast majority of the guards the Hawks have previously brought in these early stages of the draft process. He is another fifth-year senior having spent one season at Cincinnati before transferring. Over his final three seasons, Johnson averaged 13.2 points, 4.3 rebounds, and 2.8 assists with 1.6 steals for good measure.

He has been named All-WCC three times and is the reigning Defensive Player of the Year.

Johnson averaged 14.5 points, 5.0 rebounds, and 3.6 assists this past season. Never a great three-point shooter, his efficiency dipped this year to 30.7% after he shot a career-high 31.8% in the 2021-22 campaign.

He also struggled at the free throw line shooting 69% this year.

Antonio Reeves – G – Kentucky – 6-foot-4 – 185lbs

Kentucky guard Antonio Reeves jumped into the SEC and acquitted himself just fine after three seasons in the Missouri Valley Conference at Illinois State. Reeves averaged 14.1 points on 41.6% shooting from the floor and knocking down 39.8% of his triples. He also added 2.1 rebounds and 1.1 assists.

He put up 20.1 points on 46.9% shooting (39.0% 3P) with 3.5 rebounds, 1.8 assists, and 1.1 steals in his final season at Illinois State. Reeves averaged 27 points on 50.9% shooting over in a three-game stretch before he shorted out in the NCAA Tournament going 1-for-15.

Reeves won SEC Sixth Man of the Year this past season and was the MVC Most Improved Player while being named All-MVC following the 2021-22 season.

There is a good chance Reeves returns to Lexington but he is intriguing.
