New Mock Draft sends another Cat to New Orleans, one to New York


In addition to his regular mock drafts, Draft Express’ Jonathan Givony is doing a special version for The Vertical this season, and the first one presents some interesting scenarios. Givony predicts De’Aaron Fox will join fellow Cats Anthony Davis and Terrence Jones in New Orleans at #8:

“With Jrue Holiday entering free agency this summer, the Pelicans could look to address their future at point guard in a draft that is filled with playmakers,” Givony writes. “Fox’s length, athleticism and upside would fit well long term.”

I’m fine with that. Meanwhile, Knicks fans are drooling over Malik Monk to New York at #10:

“Regardless of whether Derrick Rose stays in New York, the Knicks could absolutely benefit from Monk’s offensive firepower. The sharp-shooting combo guard won’t have any qualms playing under the bright lights of Madison Square Garden.”

Definitely not after playing at Kentucky. Bill Simmons is a fan:

What about Bam Adebayo, who fell out of the first round of Chad Ford’s mock draft earlier this week? Givony still has him in at #21, going to the Wizards.

Now, of course, if you’re a UK Basketball player, you didn’t read this, right? You’re focusing solely on the reboot? Okay, good.

    This is what the program is all about. Winning the NBA draft.

      Yes all those banners hanging from the rafters mean nothing.

      Not to the current coach, and despite the highest salary in school history with the most NBA players in school history, he added a single banner. He brags about the players in the league, the number of contracts they have, etc. When we start playing terrible he says. “I saw it coming”. Saban doesn’t do any of those things.
