Chad Ford thinks Labissiere’s draft ceiling is No. 7 to Denver


In an online chat for ESPN Insider, NBA draft guru Chad Ford fielded questions about the upcoming draft, and some of those questions pertained to the three league-bound Wildcats.

— When asked about Skal Labissiere’s ceiling, Ford said he could go as high as No. 7 to the Nuggets, or as low as No. 16 to the Celtics. He named the Bucks (1oth) and Magic (11th) as teams that could target Labissiere if he is still on the board.

Ulis is on the lottery bubble, in the 14-22 range, according to Ford. He’s had Ulis in that range since Ulis first threw his name in the mix when he announced he wouldn’t be returning to Kentucky. Some other experts agree, although there are some mock drafts that have Ulis falling much further.

— He considers Murray the second best pure point guard in the draft behind Dunn. Nothing new here, but he thinks the Wolves could take him as a shooter or the Pels could take him as a PG, if he’s available.

Ford also updated the ESPN Top 100 today. He has Jamal Murray at No. 3, Skal Labissiere at No. 11, and Tyler Ulis at No. 18 in his prospect rankings.

Lots of Ford NBA talk today.

    Murray is far from a “pure point guard”.

    at UK we talk about draft ceilings … when they talk about ceilings at UL, it’s a completely different conversation

    How hard is Skal flexing in that picture? He looks like has actual muscles under those spaghetti noodles poking out of his jersey.

    He will play the three position in the NBA.
