Rumors, NBA Mock Draft

At this point in the NBA Draft cycle, it looks like Arizona center DeAndre Ayton and Slovenia guard Luka Doncic are the only true threats to be picked number one overall this coming June. After those two, there is a group of Michael Porter, Jaren Jackson, Marvin Bagley, Mohamed Bamba and Trae Young who could all be picked anywhere from 3-5.
Make no mistake, this draft runs deep – as we could see a 1998-like scenario play out in which the top two players are picked late in the lottery. Twenty years ago, the Mavericks picked Dirk Nowitzki in the nine spot and the Boston Celtics tabbed Paul Pierce with the number 10 pick.
