Was Calipari at Diallo’s workout with the Nets?

Hamidou Diallo had his workout with the Brooklyn Nets today. We know that via many reports here on this website and throughout the internet. But was John Calipari there by his side?

I’m a two and two together kind of a guy, a real tea leaves reader, and it seems Calipari was also at the Brooklyn Nets facility today. Cal shared a photo with Archie Goodwin from inside the Nets facility earlier this afternoon:

That tells me Calipari was in attendance for Diallo’s workout for the NBA team eyeing Diallo the most. Was he there as a spectator? Was he at the table when the interview and draft talks occurred? WHAT DOES THIS MEAN!

Then again I’m probably overanalyzing it because my brain is fried from all things Hamidou Diallo the last couple of weeks, so who knows.

Probably just a big coincidence they were in Sunset Park in Brooklyn at the same time on a Thursday afternoon.

    It means Calipari is acting as his unofficial advisor, and representative. Knowing Calipari and his vocal past regarding this type of thing, he is trying to sell Diallo to the nets.

    On the other hand, perhaps with the loss of Bamba, he is trying to suggest to Diallo that he should return to UK. Of course we actually have no idea why he was there, other than Cal is Cal.

    As a presence to make sure whatever the Nets were telling him was truth. Cal being there backs up his statement of not letting them evaluate there guys earl at practice if they lie amd give misleading info. Cal was there to ensure truth was told.

    I think jiminy and Not Dan are both right. I think he is up there advising the plus and minuses to Hami. He could get draft in the first round by the nets but then its the nets. Or he could hit pause of finacial freedom and come back here to improve his skills cause the athleticism aint going no where.
