Upon first glance at the lottery results, De’Aarn Fox appeared to be a perfect fit for the Philadelphia 76ers. Built with too many bigs, he’d be the perfect point guard The Process could Trust. However, Jonathan Givony of Draft Express doesn’t see it that way, penciling Josh Jackson into that No. 3 slot to the Sixers. Here’s where he believes the Cats will fall:
5. De’Aaron Fox — Sacramento Kings
6. Malik Monk — Orlando Magic
32. Bam Adebayo — Phoenix Suns
35. Hamidou Diallo — Orlando Magic

Chad Ford believes one Wildcat will Trust The Process, but it’s not De’Aaron Fox. Where the Cats land in Ford’s post-lottery mock draft:
3. Malik Monk — Philadelphia 76ers
5. De’Aaaron Fox — Sacramento Kings
23. Bam Adebayo — Toronto Raptors
27. Hamidou Diallo — Brooklyn Nets
If there’s one team that could ruin any chances Kentucky has at seeing Hamidou Diallo in a UK jersey, it’s the Brooklyn Nets. With the No. 22 and No. 27 picks, no first round pick next year and no plan on improving anytime soon, Diallo is a perfect fit for the Nets. Diallo will workout with the Nets Thursday, according to Adam Zagoria.
