Jay Bilas wants you to know that John Calipari is a great recruiter, but not necessarily a great teacher.
Bilas appeared to take a swipe at the Kentucky coach after the Kings drafted UK guard De’Aaron Fox with the fifth overall pick Thursday. ESPN draft host Rece Davis said Calipari had produced another top 10 pick with Fox. Bilas responded that Calipari didn’t produce those player but just recruited them.
Calipari has been highly successful at collecting one-and-done talent at Kentucky, which leads critics to question how much coaching and instructing he can do with prospects.

Big thanks to Jay Bilas for clarifying that college coaches do not produce these lotto picks. They are lotto picks before college!
I knew I was going to play in the D-League a little bit, Jones said, when asked about his thought process when he declared for the NBA Draft. He said that he knew he’d spend time in the D-League even after signing with the Suns.
It was probably one of the best feelings of my life, honestly, because being down in the D-League, it was a great experience for me, being a young player, 19-year-old coming out of college after my first year.
Kaepernick and Blaine Gabbert are out. Taking their place are … Brian Hoyer and Matt Barkley? Uh, OK. To be fair, the 49ers were openly courting Kirk Cousins all offseason, but a trade with Washington never came close to happening.
