LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - Kentucky coach John Calipari thinks
freshmen stars Brandon Knight and Terrence Jones should throw their names into the NBA draft. Calipari just isn't sure Knight and Jones should keep them there.
Calipari said Wednesday the clouded NBA labor situation makes it
difficult to project what's going to happen. The collective
bargaining agreement between the NBA Players Association and the
owners expires on June 30, and there's a chance league owners could lock out the players if a new deal isn't reached.
Calipari says that makes it difficult to project where players
could go in the draft. He says he's urged Knight and Jones to enter
the draft but not sign with an agent, allowing them to return to
Kentucky next year if they choose.
