Plenty of fans raised their eyebrows when Isaac Humphries announced he was leaving Kentucky to play basketball professionally, but one major mock draft believes he will hear his name called in next month’s NBA Draft. NBADraft.net has Isaac going 46th to the Houston Rockets, proving that there’s always value in a seven-footer with a decent jump shot. That’s the only major mock that lists Isaac, who ranks 128th in Chad Ford’s prospect rankings.
Meanwhile, NBADraft.net also has De’Aaron Fox going 4th to the 76ers, Malik Monk 8th to the Kings, and Bam Adebayo going 19th to the Hawks. Isaiah Briscoe didn’t make the cut.
Could Humphries get drafted and Briscoe not? Who would have imagined that two years ago?
