John Calipari took a break from combating NBA rumors to talk about his actual, current team in Lexington. One of the topics of discussion: Tai Wynyard.
On today’s SEC teleconference, Cal was asked about the possibility of Tai Wynyard sitting out the rest of the season and redshirting. He said he doesn’t think that will happen as he believes Wynyard will eventually be able to help the team at some point, once he gets into shape.
For now, Wynyard is stuck behind Labissiere as the staff tries to develop Labissiere into a regular contributor.
“I can’t just take those minutes and give them to Tai and get him going,” said Calipari. “You could do that if Skal was really playing well, if he didn’t need the minutes but he needs them.”
Back to the NBA thing, Cal said on the teleconference he appreciates his coaching job in Lexington and he is humbled to be here.
