Kentucky To Host Preseason Scouting Combine For NBA Personnel

John Calipari is finalizing plans to host an unprecedented two-day campus scouting combine at Kentucky for NBA executives to evaluate his roster of potential prospects.

Calipari has invited officials of the 30 NBA teams to send personnel to Lexington, Ky., on Oct. 11-12 to watch his players do everything from run full-court five-on-five and NBA-style pick-and-roll sets to individual skill work.

The event will also allow Calipari to impress top high school recruits on campus visits.

After the combine, Calipari plans to shut out NBA executives and scouts from his practices for several weeks – perhaps even months – into the season, league sources told Yahoo Sports.

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.

As one executive laughed, "We're just there as B-roll for his recruiting videos."
