Former University of Kentucky basketball standout Malik Monk missed out on the summer league spotlight because of an ankle injury, but fans in the Bluegrass will have a chance to catch up with him this weekend.

Monk, the Charlotte Hornets’ first-round pick in the June 22 NBA Draft, will be back in Lexington to contribute to a John Calipari UK Pro Camp next week and will make three autograph signing appearances prior to that.

Monk will be at the Barleycorn’s in Cold Spring on Friday from 6-7:30 p.m. He’ll make two appearances Saturday: from 12-1:30 p.m. at the Campus Wearhouse in Simpsonville and from 7-8:30 at the Allsports in Fayette Mall in Lexington.

Monk was Kentucky’s leading scorer as a freshman last season, averaging 19.8 points per game.
