Chad Ford’s Mock Draft 3.0 isn’t so kind to the Kentucky Wildcats. Jamal Murray and Skal Labissiere nearly slid out of the Top 10, and Isaiah Briscoe completely fell out of the first round.
7. Jamal Murray to the Pelicans, Previously #5
Murray might not be an elite athlete, but his high basketball IQ and scoring ability should lift some of the load off Davis.
9. Skal Labissiere to the Blazers, Previously #2
He was widely regarded as the second-best prospect in the draft after Simmons before the college season started. He’s struggled mightily at Kentucky, but he still has the size, athleticism and perimeter skills teams covet.
It’s a rough guesstimation on who would even be around to pick these guys, but I would hate to see more UK guys on the West Coast, unless they’re teaming up with other Cats like Murray and Davis in New Orleans.
