NBA mock drafts include four Jayhawks
The Athletic, ESPN.com, The Ringer and SI.com all do a nice job with their mock drafts. The four sites agree on two things regarding how KU players will fare in next Thursday night’s draft.
First, they predict that the first round will pass without any Jayhawks hearing their names called.
Second, they all have Malik Newman being drafted. Not even Devonte’ Graham appears on one site's projection. Svi Myhailiuk also did not make the cut in one mock draft and and Billy Preston appears on 2 of 4.
Interestingly, two sites have Newman going to the Lakers.
One guess has Graham going to the Wizards, where he could join Jayhawks Markieff Morris and Kelly Oubre Jr. and would compete to become John Wall’s backup.
A look at where four websites have KU’s four prospects going in the upcoming draft:
|Player||The Ringer||SI.com||ESPN.com||The Athletic|
|Malik Newman||47 Lakers||53 Thunder||47 Lakers||49 Spurs|
|Devonte' Graham||44 Wizards||Free agent||40 Nets||60 76ers|
|Svi Mykhailiuk||Free agent||59 Suns||57 Thunder||45 Nets|
|Billy Preston||Free agent||60 76ers||Free agent||59 Suns|
