Today is a beach day here in South Carolina. Tomorrow will be a golf day. But as the NBA draft draws ever closer, speculation is rising. Where will Brandon Knight and Enes Kanter go? Will DeAndre Liggins make the first round? Would anyone but John Calipari take Kanter as the first pick?
Here are today's links:
Isn’t that the way it’s supposed to be done in the first place? If the rule says a school can only bring in 25 new scholarships, a school should sign 25 players. All others should be given the opportunity to walk on, with the chance of earning a future scholarship. No false promises. No stockpiling.
I think this is right.
So Walsh is out with the Knicks after all. Does that mean that Calipari is headed there>?
It's also impossible to count out John Calipari, but, a source said, he would only be candidate if Creative Artists Agency, which represents the Kentucky coach (and also Carmelo Anthony), "pulls a power move."
It could always happen, but I'd feel comfortable betting the farm against it.
The school will pay $30,000 for violating the conference's artificial noisemaker rule, but will keep last year's compromise, the league's university presidents decided Friday.
Don't step out of line, MSU fans.

The dynamic between Gillispie and Jasper is not normal. The two spent one season together at Kentucky, during Gillispie's rocky UK ride. Anyone close to Kentucky basketball knows that even the calmest of days are a soap opera. But Gillispie's two-year run in Lexington was chock full of wild and seemingly implausible moments.
Hmm. I'm not so sure. Perhaps there was more truth to Gillispie's perception that Jasper was able to play than is widely known, and perhaps Jasper knew it. My feeling is that there was more to the pain than the physical, and that ultimately led to the transfer.
"Brandon is just wired differently from most kids. You won’t hear him talk about being popular or this or that. It’s just not in his DNA. He just takes things as they come. I¿know that is very different from most people, but that is the way it has always been with him."
Brandon is a special person as well as a special player. The NBA team who gets him will be fortunate, indeed.
