Kentucky Wildcats coach, John Calipari says he has eight players who could be drafted into the NBA this year but don't count on him giving honest evaluations of those players.

Speaking on WFAN, Calipari discussed how he helped young players make the decision about whether to stay in school or to jump to the NBA.

Calipari mentioned that he would talk to NBA teams about players and feed back the information, but he denied telling NBA teams the truth about prospective players.

"No I don't tell the NBA the truth. Not in a negative way. When they make a decision to go pro... and I will lie.. I will do whatever."

During the interview, the successful coach mentioned that NBA scouts have informed him that as many as eight of his players have the potential to be drafted in this year's draft.

Calipari said that he didn't know how many of those eight would actually make the decision to go pro, but that he would not tell any of them which decision to make.
