According to the mastermind behind ESPN’s NBA Draft coverage, Chad Ford, John Calipari reached out to several NBA teams to inquire about Dakari Johnson and the consensus is he will likely fall to the second round in the draft.
“John Calipari has been calling NBA folks all week to gauge his draft stock according to sources,” Ford tweeted this morning. “NBA teams are telling Cal that Johnson is likely a second rounder. But Calipari has sounded pessimistic that Dakari will stay at UK.”
Johnson is the only departing Wildcat who Ford believes is making a mistake. Seemingly everyone on the outside of Johnson’s decision tends to agree.
