Cal Expects Cousins To Stay At UK

Call it a game of Liar's Poker.

Call it anything you want, but Cal isn't the first to say that NBA scouts and executives lie when talking about college talent. They often say bad things about a player, because they really want them.

Since most True Blue fans expect both John Wall and DeMarcus Cousins to leave after this season for the big bucks of the NBA, and Cal talks to NBA executives all the time, where do the top two freshman stand?

So, LEX18 Sports asked Cal if he expected DeMarcus Cousins to be drafted high.

"I think he's going to come back," says Cal. "He wants to come back."

Do you think John will be drafted high?

"I think he could be. He tells me he wants to come back. I don't know. We'll have to talk when this is over. These guys, I don't know if I want to coach them another year."

Tough sacrifice?

"Alright, let me go to practice."

That made the media laugh as Cal walked away.

So, it's a wait and see game with the top two freshman Cats.

We'll have a live fan chat beginning at noon Saturday at
