Once a consensus Top Five pick, Skal Labissiere is barely hanging on to the lottery in Jonathan Givony’s latest 2016 mock draft. It took awhile for Skal’s play to push him down the line, but now he’s falling, and fast. If continues to slide and falls out of the lottery, it can make a huge difference in pay and whether or not he’ll decide to stay and play.
Marcus Lee isn’t so different, beginning this year as an early second rounder. Now for the second straight update, Lee isn’t on the big board.
Where the Cats Fall (Last Ranked)
7. Jamal Murray to New Orleans, (#8)
14. Skal Labissiere to Houston (#10)
47. Tyler Ulis to Dallas (#51)
48. Isaiah Briscoe to Chicago (#32)
Even though the order in which the teams will pick is far from being set, you can’t help but get excited when you think about Anthony Davis and Jamal Murray teaming up.
The 2017 NBA Draft seems so far away that I’m not even sure what Givony takes into account. Nonetheless, it is still filled with Wildcats.
