NBA rumors swirl around Ky. coach John Calipari

Posted:
LEXINGTON, KY -

Kentucky's talented freshmen shed a shaky regular season and then showed why the Wildcats were picked No. 1 in the preseason with an impressive run to the NCAA championship game.
    
After losing 60-54 loss to Connecticut, the annual question is which Kentucky player(s) will leave for the NBA, including John Calipari.
    
The fifth-year Kentucky coach is used to inquiries, but former Kentucky player Rex Chapman turned up the heat Monday by tweeting that Calipari coaching the Los Angeles Lakers was a "done deal." While Calipari said later he was happy and planned to be back at Kentucky, he didn't completely dismiss the scenario.
    
It wouldn't be a surprise if Kentucky (29-11) loses forward Julius Randle. Several of his young teammates also are going to mull over their pro prospects.
