We might as well get all of the bad news out of the way in this 24-hour span, right? A loss at home to Texas A&M? Check. The two dreadful words “bubble team” starting to be muttered about this 5-loss Kentucky team? Check. Doron Lamb being sent to the D-League? Go ahead and add that to the list. Check. I’m not trying to pile on with the bad news, but we might as well get it all out now and hope that after the star-studded football recruiting visits this weekend–we wake up to some better news tomorrow.
Doron Lamb was part of a 6-member Kentucky NBA draft class last year. Earlier today the news broke that he was the 3rd member of Kentucky’s national championship team to be sent to the NBA’s Developmental League. The Milwaukee Bucks sent Lamb down to the D-League’s Fort Wayne Mad Ants today. Lamb joins Terrence Jones and Darius Miller as two former Cats who have spent time in the D-League this season. Lamb was the No. 42 overall pick in last year’s draft to the Bucks. Lamb has played in 23 games thus far for the Bucks, averaging 3.4 points and 12.2 minutes. He scored 8 points on four occasions this season.
“Wake me up, when this weekend ends…”
