- I know I posted this last week but I wanted to remind everyone again to go to the ESPY Awards website at to vote for John Wall. The former UK point guard and 2010 top overall draft pick was nominated in two categories, for Best Breakthrough Athlete and Best College Male Athlete. Voting is now open and runs through July 10. The winners will be announced July 14 at 9 p.m. on ESPN.

- Daniel Orton (29th overall pick to the Orlando Magic) became the first of the five UK NBA draftees to sign a pro contract. The Orlando Magic reported the deal on their official website Thursday but did not release the terms of the contract. Orton will play for the Magic during the AirTran Airways Pro Summer League, which starts Monday at the RDV Sportsplex. 

- Andy Katz from takes a look at how college teams will replace their NBA lottery picks. Given what we saw last week, Kentucky is obviously No. 1 on Katz's list. See what Katz and head coach John Calipari have to say about replacing the big five from last year at
