CBS came out with their most recent mock draft, to where they did their own little lottery to assign players to a team. After that happened – congrats Boston Celtics, you have a fake No. 1 pick – they put the three Kentucky guys all in the top-15 with Jamal Murray going the highest at No. 4 to the Philadelphia 76ers. After that Skal is going to the Magic at No. 11 followed by Tyler Ulis at No. 14 to the Chicago Bulls.
Gary Parrish has high praise for Murray, who is called the prospect with the highest ceiling. The direct quote is “But Philadelphia can still get a prospect with All-Star potential, and the prospect with the highest ceiling available, at this point, is, I think, Murray. He’s a dynamic combo guard who can shoot from the perimeter. And there’s just no reason to believe he won’t be a nice scorer at the NBA level.”
Not bad for a guy who people questioned if he was athletic enough to be factor in the NBA early in the season.
