The cupboard is empty for John Calipari right now. During a press conference that was held a short time ago, the top seven scorers from this year's Kentucky basketball team declared for the 2015 NBA Draft. Karl-Anthony Towns, Willie Cauley-Stein, Devin Booker, Trey Lyles, Dakari Johnson, Andrew Harrison, and Aaron Harrison all announced their intentions to forego the remainder of their college eligibility in order to enter the draft in June.
Not to worry, though, Wildcats fans. Your team will look totally different next season—Drake is going to have to learn a lot of new names—but Kentucky has already received commitments from three players ranked in the top 50 in the ESPN 100 rankings, and there are three others who are strongly considering playing for the Wildcats next season. And now that seven roster spots have opened up, it wouldn't be a surprise if at least one or two of those players, if not all three, decided to come and play for Calipari next season.
