Jodie Meeks never played for John Calipari, but he’s taking up Coach Cal’s invite to all Wildcats to come back to school to finish their degree
What seemed like an unlikely notion as recently as last week suddenly doesn’t seem so crazy anymore after Mays’ workout at a pre-NBA Draft combine that was hosted by the New Jersey Nets on Thursday. Facing talent that will be up for grabs at the NBA Draft, Mays shined, according to tweets from John Calipari, who was in attendance at the PNY Center in East Rutherford, N.J.
Julius Mays didn’t reach the NCAA Tournament and compete for a national championship like he had hoped when he transferred to Kentucky, but his decision to join John Calipari’s team did earn him a shot at the NBA. Mays is one of 30 players who will participate in a pre-NBA Draft combine at the PNY Center in East Rutherford, N.J., Wednesday and Thursday.
If all goes according to plan, Nerlens Noel looks to be headed to the Cleveland Cavaliers. The up-and-coming Cavs won the NBA Draft Lottery for the second time in three years, likely landing Kentucky’s Noel in the process.
