I fully expect Isaiah to come back and be a leader on and off the court for this young team. I'm excited to have him back.

Isaiah shot the ball well at the NBA workouts but will look to continue to improve that to take the next step in his career.

John Calipari @UKCoachCalipari

All the teams were impressed w/Zay physically, defensively, his rebounding ability, his strength, his ball-handling ability & his bball IQ.
