Skal Labissiere spent just one season while at Kentucky and for someone who was the second overall prospect in the country for the 2015 recruiting class, he had a disappointing season. However, he left the school to try his hand at the NBA and has just a few weeks to decide to return to school for his sophomore year.
He might not want to do that just yet after his most recent performance at an NBA workout.
Scout.com’s Evan Daniels reported Labissiere had a good showing at the workout and his stock is starting climb pretty rapidly.
Another source that watched Skal Labissiere yesterday: "Skal was unreal in his workouts, not just terrific."

When it comes right down to it, the NBA Draft is all about which player has the most potential. It certainly looks like Labissiere has that right now and he could end up getting drafted pretty early on.
This time last year, Skal Labissiere being a lottery pick probably wasn’t too much of a stretch. However, after only averaging 6.6 points and 3.1 rebounds per game in the 2015-16 season, that is pretty unlikely today.
But if Labissiere continues to impress in the next month and a half, he could hear his name called when the draft takes place on June 25.
