The college basketball season is less than three weeks old, but the NBA draft gurus do not care. The NBA draft is a dynamic, never-ending process, and there ain’t no rest for the wicked.
Last night around midnight Draft Express updated their 2017 mock draft and three Wildcat freshmen are in the lottery.
5. Malik Monk
10. De’Aaron Fox
15. Bam Adebayo
Now that there’s actually basketball being played, there’s a lot more movement than usual. Monk was projected around 12 or 13 before the UK Pro Day and his explosion at Madison Square Garden.
Monk is ranked one spot behind Saturday’s opponent, UCLA point guard Lonzo Ball.
