KSR’s Jack Pilgrim is joined by Travis Graf and David Sisk of Cats Illustrated for episode 51 of the Sources Say Podcast, where the trio of recruiting insiders discuss the latest with Kentucky basketball’s summer workouts, the New York Knicks potentially having interest in Kenny Payne, Adam Kunkel’s commitment to Xavier, among several other topics.

The Sources Say crew starts the show by breaking down the early standouts of UK basketball’s summer workouts.

  • What was the initial reaction to players arriving on campus?
  • Who is looking good in the early workouts?
  • Who needs to separate themselves leading into the season?

Pilgrim, Graf, and Sisk then discuss the New York Knicks’ interest in Kenny Payne and the chances Kentucky will need to find a new assistant coach.

  • Why are the Knicks interested with Payne?
  • Has contact been made between the two parties?
  • What do you need to know about KP’s side of things?
  • How significant of a loss would it be?
  • Who would UK look at to replace Payne if he were to leave?
  • If you could choose one former UK basketball player under John Calipari to become an assistant, who would it be?

They close the show by discussing Adam Kunkel’s commitment to Xavier and where things fell through with Kentucky. Then, they discuss the list of 105 names being considered for the NBA Draft Combine and why EJ Montgomery was the only former Wildcat left out.

  • A behind the scenes look at Kunkel’s recruitment
  • The back-and-forth on Kentucky’s side of things
  • Why did UK not take the next step forward?
  • Five Kentucky players make the initial list of potential invitees to the NBA Draft Combine
