Projecting Kentucky's starting lineup for the 2017-2018 season

05/11/2017 07:45 PM

While Kentucky’s roster for this upcoming season isn’t set in stone yet, we have a good idea of what John Calipari’s team is going to look like. Freshmen Quade Green, Shai Gilgeous-Alexander and Jemarl Baker make up the backcourt, while the froncourt is loaded with talent featuring Kevin Knox, Jarred Vanderbilt, PJ Washington, Nick Richards, Wenyen Gabriel and Sacha Killeya-Jones.

Using the current roster we know of (not counting Hamidou Diallo, Mohamed Bamba or Cam Johnson), TJ Beisner and Bradley McKee give their projections for Kentucky’s starting five.
