Pilgrim’s Insider Notes: NBA Draft decision updates

Late Saturday evening, Kentucky head coach John Calipari spilled the beans that five Wildcats are prepared to test the NBA Draft waters.

During an appearance on the SEC Network’s “SEC House Party,” Calipari broke the news that five players “have put their name in the draft.”

“What we did, before they left, I had individual meetings with each player and I had the staff in there,” Calipari said. “I wanted everybody to hear it together individually with my staff. Then we just did a Zoom (video conference) call yesterday with my entire team to try to keep touching base with them, but the reality of it was five of them have put their name in the draft.
