Kentucky Wildcats Basketball hosting NBA Pro Day this year

With UK set to have multiple NBA draft picks on next year’s roster, there will be another NBA Pro Day for the Wildcats to showcase their potential.

Since 2010, the Kentucky Wildcats and John Calipari have been producing NBA talent more than any school in the country. It’s no secret that UK is the best place for players who want to have the best shot of making it to the NBA as possible.

Part of that has to do with Calipari and UK doing everything in their power to boost the NBA profile of their players every year. One example of doing that involves UK holding their own NBA Combine, which will take place once again this year.

Kentucky has hosted a combine in October for two years now, and for good reason. Their 2014-1 team was loaded with eventual NBA Draft picks Karl-Anthony Towns, Andrew Harrison, Willie Cauley-Stein, Trey Lyles, Dakari Johnson, and Devin Booker.

Last year’s team featured Tyler Ulis, Skal Labissiere, Alex Poythress and Jamal Murray, all of whom are currently on NBA rosters.

This year's team features a wealth of potential draft picks in De’Aaron Fox, Malik Monk, Bam Adebayo, Isaiah Briscoe and Wenyen Gabriel.
