The Kentucky Wildcats’ annual Pro Day has been set for Oct. 6 in the men’s practice gym of the Joe Craft Center, the school announced Friday.

The annual event gives NBA teams a chance to get an early up-close look at the current Wildcats and their pro potential. Ongoing construction in Rupp Arena is moving the event to the Craft Center for the second straight season.

The event will also be live streamed for fans to watch on the SEC Network. The televised portion of Pro Day will air live from 5:30 to 7:30 pm EST. Seth Greenberg and Jimmy Dykes will be commentating on the event.

All 30 NBA teams are invited to the annual Pro Day, where the Wildcats will go through a combine-like practice conducted by the UK coaching staff. Coaches will direct the players through various agility and shooting drills in addition to 3-on-3 and 5-on-5 scrimmaging. All 30 NBA teams were represented during the previous five seasons.

Among the projected NBA Draft picks on this year’s roster include sophomore guard Ashton Hagans, sophomore forward EJ Montgomery, freshman guard Tyrese Maxey, and freshman forward Kahlil Whitney. Other guys like sophomore Immanuel Quickley, junior Nick Richards, freshman guard Johnny Juzang and freshman forward Keion Brooks also could become potential NBA picks in the 2020 draft.
