Kentucky Wildcats Friday Open Thread For June 20th, 2014

Denny Medley-USA TODAY Sports

The Quickies take a break this morning, but we have a few bits of news. Injury to Joel Embiid shakes up 2014 NBA Draft. UK basketball has a big visit on June 28th. Hoops will spend Thanksgiving in the islands. More.

Today, I am off very early for a golf game down in Franklin, Kentucky at Kenny Perry's golf course, one I am looking forward to playing with one of my oldest and best friends. It's a long drive, but I expect it will be worth it. Unfortunately, that means I don't have time for normal Quickies due to having to get up really early.

Instead, we'll have this open thread. Please use it to post news and talk about the sporting events of the day. Here are a few news stories of interest that you may want to talk about:
