Former Kentucky walk-on and future NBA superstar?
At least one NBA Draft board thinks there is a very, very slim chance.
DraftSite.com released their latest 2019 NBA Mock Draft Big Board, and Jonny David made the cut.
You might have to scroll a little while to get there, but the 6-foot-2 point guard showed up near the bottom of the list at No. 259 overall.
After David was informed of his impeccable draft stock on Twitter, he unleashed his inner Lloyd Christmas:
Sooooo you’re telling me there’s a chance!!! https://t.co/wXYPsXWzJJ

Looking elsewhere on the mock draft, it’s definitely… something.
Kentucky’s Keldon Johnson came in at No. 13 overall, followed by PJ Washington at No. 15, and Tyler Herro at No. 23. Probably need to switch Johnson and Herro, but overall, not horrible.
From there, though, the entire thing is a mess.
Going down the list a little bit, Ashton Hagans, who is returning for a sophomore season at Kentucky, is listed at No. 52, with Reid Travis coming in at No. 58, Immanuel Quickley (also returning) at No. 86, EJ Montgomery at No. 94, and Nick Richards at No. 95.
In other interesting names on the list, former Wildcats Quade Green and Sacha Killeya-Jones came in at No. 70 and 146, respectively, while potential Virginia Tech grad transfer and UK target Kerry Blackshear Jr. is listed at No. 155 overall.
While there are plenty of head-scratchers on there, the only thing that matters is that Jonny David is a top-260 draft prospect. That’s all I need to know.
