The last ties to last season are now scattered across the country as continue their quest toward their NBA dreams – which may or may not become realized in 2011. Back in Lexington, that means it’s time to focus on now. And while Coach Cal gets comfortable with his new deal and readies himself for the best that Puerto Rico has to offer, a trio of Wildcats looks to improve themselves in Chicago. It’s already been reported that Terrence Jones is in Chicago at the Kevin Durant Skills Camp and it now appears Jones was joined by Darius Miller and Doron Lamb at the camp, which runs through tomorrow. The players will join other top college wings in skill drills and get some mentoring from NBA coaches. Even Brandon Knight and Enes Kanter can’t do that right now.
Perhaps more importantly, the trio gives Kentucky 33% of the college roster, meaning they can work a little pro-UK angle with some of the nation’s top high school players. The Durant camp also brings in 29 of the nation’s top high school players, making this a great opportunity to preach the good word. Don’t be shy, gentlemen. Share what is in your heart.
