Willie Cauley-Stein has been on a tear lately, scoring in double figures in the past five games and putting in monster performances against Texas and North Carolina. Willie’s always had potential, but this is becoming his breakout season, and in turn, his NBA stock is soaring. DraftExpress’ latest mock has Willie as the #4 pick in the 2015 NBA Draft, behind Jahlil Okafor, Emmanuel Mudiay, and Karl Towns. That’s a substantial jump for Willie, who was 9th in Chad Ford’s mock draft last week.
DraftExpress’ mock also had Dakari Johnson at #24, Andrew Harrison at #27, Alex Poythress at #36, and Aaron Harrison at #42. And yes, the mock was updated on Saturday afternoon, so it takes Alex’s injury into account.
How wild is it that the 4th best NBA prospect in the country isn’t even entirely sure he wants to play basketball professionally?
