Hamidou Diallo's NBA Draft Decision Is Going Down To The Wire

An update on the NBA Draft decision for the star Kentucky freshman.

Hamidou Diallo's NBA Draft decision is likely going to be made at the last minute.

The Kentucky five-star freshman, who enrolled a semester early but didn't end up seeing the court for the Wildcats, impressed at the NBA Draft Combine in Chicago. He posted the highest vertical jump in the history of the event. Some think he'd be taken somewhere in the first round if the stayed in the draft.

Will he?

According to Adam Zagoria, Diallo's decision is "going to the wire."

Diallo returning for his freshman season would be a major plus for John Calipari's squad heading into the 2017-18 season. The Wildcats will be ranked somewhere inside the top 10 and could vault into the top five if Diallo returns.
