Unfortunately, now we move onto the part of the season where we wonder who will go and who will stay. According to several reporters, John Calipari was asked that question this afternoon in Indy, and said seven players are now considering entering the NBA Draft.
“I’d say seven guys are considering their options,” Cal said, telling reporters that he met with all of them yesterday. “There’s not going to be any brainwashing.”
“I would guess five is the minimum, but seven is a possibility,” Cal added. “I hope they surprise me like they did last year.”
Of the five, Cal says that Willie Cauley-Stein, Karl Towns, the Harrison Twins, and Trey Lyles are the most likely to go. “I’d be surprised if they’re not both first-round picks,” Cal said of the Harrisons.
That leaves Devin Booker and Dakari Johnson as maybes. Sounds about right to me.
