    Should be a fun draft for UK fans…two almost certain locks for the lottery/mid 1st round as well as the potential for someone to take Hami, Wenyen, and Vanderbilt. Hoping the best for all involved!

    Knox reminds me of LeBron and very well could be the steal of the draft. Good luck too all of them.

    Idk about Lebron…but the kid has a huge ceiling if he bulks and becomes a lockdown defender. Right now he reminds of a young Luol Deng. Tall, lanky, but can fill it up at times and can be a match up nightmare. Best of luck to all the Cats!
