Devin Booker working out for the Hornets wants a Mock Draft Roundup


The NBA Draft is two weeks from tomorrow, which means rumors are flying left and right about whose stock is soaring and whose is falling. Sports Illustrated’s Chris Mannix released his latest mock draft this morning and he’s got four Cats going in the lottery:

1. Karl Towns, Minnesota
8. Devin Booker, Detroit
12. Willie Cauley-Stein, Utah
14. Trey Lyles, Oklahoma City

Most mocks have Willie going in the top ten. Mannix attributes his low projection to opinions on Willie being “all over the map”:

Opinions on Cauley-Stein are all over the map. As limited as he is offensively–and no tweak to his shot is going to make him much more than a finisher and maybe a decent baseline/elbow jump shooter–his defensive upside is enormous. The Jazz could use another big (when was the last time we said that?) and Cauley-Stein can slide between both frontcourt positions.

Meanwhile Mannix says teams are “enamored” with Devin Booker’s shooting and he doesn’t think the Pistons will be able to pass Devin up with the eighth pick. If they do, there’s a great chance Booker will end up in Charlotte, which is where he worked out this morning.

What do the rest of the mocks say? Here’s a roundup:

    My T-Wolves getting 3 Cats?! Love that idea!!!

    Listen, I love Booker, but I couldn’t EVER imagine picking him over Willie. Willies skillset is almost impossible to find. He’s going to instantly become one of the quickest, athletic, tall people in the NBA as soon as he is drafted.

    I absolutely do not see a scenario in which Devin drops to 25 to Memphis… If he doesn’t go top 15 (hell maybe even top 10), I will be shocked.

      But Dr. A from Yahoo can’t possibly be wrong! 😉

      Dr. A most certainly does not have his doctorate in predicting drafts… That much is for sure.

      That mock looks pretty solid, by my estimation. I think Andrew gets drafted somewhere in the second round, though. Same with Dakari.

      Oh I agree with you. Dr. A should have realized he was wrong when his projection for Devin is 10+ spots away from what everyone else is predicting.

    Aaron, Andrew and Johnson should come back. CATS should not settle for 2nd round picks

      It sure would be nice to have the Twins back to share time at the 3…

    I am really confused about the Harrison Twins, not sure why they left
