Right after the draft lottery we were bombarded with mock drafts from every institution imaginable. Luckily, that’s died down a bit. But now that we have officially entered the month in which the NBA Draft takes place, so why not take another look?
In today’s edition, Jonathan Givony has slightly lowered the stock of Kentucky’s three projected picks. Here’s where they compare to the May 17 mock draft.
8. Jamal Murray to the Kings (#6 to New Orleans)
11. Skal Labissiere to Orlando (#8 to Sacramento)
24. Tyler Ulis to Philadelphia (#20 to Indiana)
Skal has been slotted by most mock drafts to Orlando, which makes this move the least shocking. Ulis’ drop isn’t too terribly significant, even though Philadelphia would be a nightmare for any rookie. Murray is in the 6-9 range which almost guarantees that he’ll be teamed up with at least one other former Wildcat.
