Will any Wildcats be on the move? More importantly, will KAT get some help?

NBA: Sacramento Kings at Minnesota Timberwolves Bruce Kluckhohn-USA TODAY Sports

The NFL season is officially over and baseball is still a few weeks away, so that can mean only one thing: it’s time for the NBA trade deadline! The NBA is a gift that never stops getting, but the chaos created by both the trade deadline and the July free agent period is peak sports entertainment.

Last season, there was certainly speculation about Anthony Davis’ future. This year, however, it is very unlikely that any prominent former Wildcats will be on the move. There are rumors, however, that the Minnesota Timberwolves are looking to make some big moves in order to get Karl-Anthony Towns some help. Perhaps bigger moves than Tuesday’s acquisition of Jarred Vanderbilt.

It should be an exciting day, so clear your calendar around 3 p.m. to catch up on which former Kentucky players got moved, got help, or got screwed over.
