Hall of Fame coach John Calipari knows it’s not always in his players’ best interest to participate in portions of the NBA draft combine. Calipari’s comments come in the wake of Golden State Warriors All-Star Kevin Durant telling ESPN.com recently that top prospects should stay at home and work out on their own time. Calipari said he hadn’t read Durant’s comments yet, but when apprised of what Durant said, Calipari’s answer was blunt.

“He may be right,” Calipari said during Day 1 of the NBA draft combine Thursday. “For the guys, if you think there’s anything here that would hurt you, don’t come. If there’s anything here that would help you, come. If you have to play to help yourself, come. If it doesn’t help you [to] play, then don’t play.”
