Chad Ford dropped Skal Labissiere out of his lottery on draft day


Chad Ford made one major change to his mock draft today and it includes Skal Labissiere. And it’s not a forward move for the former Wildcat.

Ford’s new mock draft has Labissiere going to Boston at No. 16, just outside the lottery. That’s a five-spot drop for Labissiere from Ford’s last mock, released yesterday, which had him going to Orlando at No. 11.

Orlando has long been the projected spot for Labissiere in seemingly every mock draft on the internet, since the combine last month.

But Ford writes, “The word on Wednesday night was that the Magic are leaning toward a safer pick in Sabonis or Ellenson at the moment.”

    I thought that comment from him about his potential being reached in 2-3 years, or even 5 years probably wasn’t exactly what he wanted to put out there.

    Will Ellenson even be around? I thought most had him as being Top 10.

    Brad Stevens & Danny Ainge aren’t interested in him. I’d be absolutely shocked if they picked Labissierre.

    I doubt Danny Ainge ever picks another Calipari player outside of a #1 pick after his experience with James Young
