BBNBA: Former Cats stay put at the trade deadline


Yesterday’s NBA trade deadline was one of the most eventful in recent memory, with the Cleveland Cavaliers essentially flipping 3/4 of their roster in a matter of hours. With all the moves that were made, somehow all of the former Kentucky Wildcats managed to stick with their respective teams.

Rumors swirled in the days leading up to the deadline about potential trades for multiple former Cats, including Julius Randle, Jodie Meeks, Skal Labissiere, among others. So, life goes on and so does the season for these former Kentucky Wildcats, with five of them playing in last night’s action.
