Malik Monk has played his last game in a Kentucky uniform, but UK fans still have chances to see him before he begins his NBA journey. UK’s all-time leading freshman scorer is going on an autograph tour throughout Kentucky. There are stops currently scheduled in Lexington, Ashland, Louisville and Elizabethtown. He is looking forward to seeing more of the state and meeting fans, “I get to see new places and make people happy.”
When ask if he was aware of some occurrences during other autograph tours (a female fan licking Devin Booker’s door handle) Monk looked in disbelief, “Nah, nah I didn’t see that. That happened?”
The SEC newcomer and player of the year seemed ready to call the Commonwealth a second home, “Once you come to Kentucky you can’t really take that back. I’m part of the family now.”
Monk is ready to meet the fans but knows, “It’ll be crazy.”
Here is are the times and locations of the autograph tour.
