Sharpe to stay in NBA Draft, Turner hired as new assistant coach

Shaedon Sharpe announced last night he will keep his name in the NBA Draft after all. The former top recruit who came to Kentucky in January will have never played a game for the Wildcats.

Kentucky hired a new assistant basketball coach Tuesday. The Athletic and Kentucky Sports Radio both reported Oklahoma’s KT Turner will join the staff. Coach John Calipari said he wanted to hire a player development specialist with Texas recruiting ties. Turner also has worked as associate head coach at Texas and SMU.
