Most of the mock drafts I’ve seen in the past month have Malik Monk going before De’Aaron Fox, but Draft Express’ Jonathan Givony says not so fast. Givony updated his 2017 mock draft this morning and has Fox going sixth to Philadelphia, followed by Monk going seventh to the Minnesota Timberwolves. Obviously, the draft order isn’t even set yet, so it’s best not to get too excited about these things, but KAT and Monk? Yes, please!
Meanwhile, Givony has Bam Adebayo going 17th to the Milwaukee Bucks and Isaiah Briscoe going 48th to the Indiana Pacers. Briscoe hasn’t been a constant in most mock drafts, so seeing him firmly in the second round was nice to see; judging by his play so far this season, he certainly deserves it.
Also of note: Harry Giles, who was once predicted to be the number one pick in the 2017 draft, has fallen all the way to 18th in Givony’s mock. Through seven games, the Duke freshman’s only averaging 5.6 points and 5 rebounds per game. Ouch.
