Kentucky coach John Calipari awaits players' decisions about staying or leaving for the NBA

Kentucky coach John Calipari has been too busy promoting his latest book to reflect on last week's NCAA championship game loss to Connecticut.

Calipari must first deal with several issues, the most pressing of which is the futures of several of his highly touted freshmen. The coach offered no indication Thursday whether Julius Randle, twins Andrew and Aaron Harrison or James Young will leave for the NBA as speculated or return for another season. He has provided them enough information to make a decision.

Regarding last week's tweet from ex-Kentucky player Rex Chapman that Calipari was headed to the NBA's Los Angeles Lakers, the coach told former Wildcats star Anthony Davis he wasn't, but also joked "unless you'll come with me."
