Calipari to hold two-day Wildcat scouting combine
Tuesday September 9th, 2014

Kentucky head coach John Calipari is finalizing plans to invite executives from all 30 NBA teams to the school's campus in October for a two-day "scouting combine," according to Yahoo's Adrian Wojnarowski.

After the combine, Calipari's plan is to bar scouts from practices for "several weeks – perhaps even months" as a way of limiting distractions, reported Wojnarowski.

Kentucky has several top NBA prospects returning this season, including Willie Cauley-Stein, Marcus Lee and the Harrison twins, Aaron and Andrew. Freshman Karl-Anthony Towns is also highly-touted. He was ranked the fifth-best recruit in the nation by Rivals.

More from Wojnarowski:

NBA personnel aren't allowed to interact with college undergraduates, but Calipari can simply shape his workouts to be conducive to the NBA's needs.
