For the sixth consecutive season, head coach John Calipari and the Kentucky Wildcats will host NBA scouts from all 30 teams in the annual Pro Day showcase.
The SEC Network will televise the event once again, which will take place in the Joe Craft Center while Rupp Arena undergoes construction. Seth Greenberg and Jimmy Dykes will be your voices for the two-hour event, which will start at 5:30 p.m. EST and run until 7:30 p.m. The practice will also be streamed live on WatchESPN.
#UKProDay is tomorrow at 5:30 p.m. on @SECNetwork. You’re going to see our kids smiling, dunking, shooting and having fun! I think #BBN is going to see we’ve got a pretty good bunch. @SethOnHoops pic.twitter.com/C2cf6cdDRU

The Kentucky coaching staff will lead the 2019-20 version of the Wildcats through assorted shooting and agility drills along with 3-on-3 and 5-on-5 scrimmaging. On top of the on-court portion of the practice, fans and scouts will also get a sneak peek at early season measurements such as body fat, sprint speed, bench press, and wingspan/hand size. The practice will serve as a tune-up to this Friday’s Big Blue Madness on Oct. 11. It will also be the first time we’ll get to see players such as Tyrese Maxey, Kahlil Whitney, Nate Sestina, and others, in action.
KSR will be providing you with post-practice highlights and takeaways, so make sure to stay updated on the site throughout the day. Let’s go ahead and start guessing who dunks on who first. I’m going with EJ Montgomery over Nick Richards.
