Chalk up another successful daft for John Calipari.
On Thursday, Calipari watched as three of his Kentucky Wildcats were selected in the first 14 picks of the 2017 NBA Draft. De’Aaron Fox to the Kings was expected, Malik Monk falling to the Hornets was a minor surprise, and Bam Adebayo going 14th to the Heat was a pleasent surprise.
No other school matched that mark, and no one has been better at getting players drafted than Coach Cal.
