Hornets draft Kentucky forward PJ Washington at No. 12

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) When PJ Washington entered the 2018 NBA draft, he quickly realized he wasn't ready for the next level.

So the 6-foot-8, 230-pound forward swallowed his pride, pulled his name out of the draft and headed back to Kentucky to work harder on developing his skills. His patience paid off on Thursday night as the Charlotte Hornets selected Washington with the 12th overall pick in the NBA draft.

"It definitely woke me up," Washington said of the decision to return for his sophomore season with the Wildcats. "It definitely put some fuel on my fire and definitely helped me get to where I am today. It motivated me and pushed me every day in practice. I had that feeling in the back of my mind, and I knew what I wanted to do and I knew where I wanted to go."
