Good morning BBN!

As all of the fanbase is focused on a huge football game on Saturday evening between the Kentucky Wildcats and the Georgia Bulldogs, former Cats are getting prepped for the start of the NBA season.

Teams across the league have started to report to training camp, and 30 former Kentucky players have made the preseason and training camp rosters. Yes...30!

With the season kicking off on October 24th, some of these players are going to have to fight to make the final roster, including names such as Wenyen Gabriel, TyTy Washington, and several others. Included in the 30 players are also four players who are currently on two-way contracts (can play so many days on the main roster while being a part of the assigned G-League Team) who are Oscar Tshiebwe, Olivier Sarr, Johnny Juzang, and TyTy.

Either way seeing 30 players making the opening training camp rosters is incredible. Once again, we have another testament to how great of a recruiter and talent developer John Calipari really is.

You can find a quick list of all 30 players here by Zack Geoghegan of KSR.
