Hamidou Diallo’s future is the hottest topic in the Bluegrass these days and we have a new mock draft on the internets today to assist you in predicting said future.
The guys over NBCSports.com’s NBA website released their new first round mock and it has Diallo up to No. 23. In this round of predictions, it is the Toronto Raptors organization that takes the gamble on Diallo’s unproven game.
The explanation of the prediction isn’t anything you don’t know:
23. Toronto Raptors: Hamidou Diallo, Kentucky. The most explosive athlete in the draft, fantastic physical tools, but very raw and is a real project. Never played for Kentucky. [NBCSports.com]
In this same mock draft, De’Aaron Fox goes fifth overall to the Orlando Magic, behind Markelle Fultz, Josh Jackson, Lonzo Ball and Jayson Tatum, in that order. Malik Monk is the seventh overall pick, while your boy Bam Adebayo is No. 28 overall to the Los Angeles Lakers.
