Shooting guard Hamidou Diallo received an invitation to the NBA Combine, ESPN’s Jeff Goodman reports. Diallo is the fifth Wildcat to receive an invitation, joining Malik Monk, Isaiah Briscoe, De’Aaron Fox and Bam Adebayo.
The No. 1 ranked shooting guard in the 2017 class came to Kentucky a semester early in January, but never saw any game action. Diallo’s draft projections vary, seen by many as a fringe first rounder in the 2017 draft, or a lottery pick in 2018.
The NBA Combine is May 9-14 in Chicago. Diallo has not hired an agent. He will have until May 24 to decide if wants to go pro or suit up for Kentucky next year.
