Michael Kidd-Gilchrist has heard the projections — that he is slated to be a high lottery pick in the NBA draft June 28.

The 6-foot forward was instrumental in helping Kentucky win the NCAA championship this year. Asked about playing with fellow ex-Wildcat John Wall as a member of the Washington Wizards, Kidd-Gilchrist said it would be a "dream come true."

"It [would be] a great feeling," Kidd-Gilchrist said. "I like John a lot. He and I know each other well. He's one of my best friends."
