The latest NBA Mock Draft from Sports Illustrated has all three Kentucky Wildcats being drafted in the top-15.
The projection has the three Kentucky players being drafted consecutively from 13-15.
13. PJ Washington, Kentucky (Miami Heat)
14. Tyler Herro, Kentucky (Boston Celtics)
15. Keldon Johnson, Kentucky (Detroit Pistons)
If this have PJ Washington and Tyler Herro both as lottery picks, with Keldon Johnson just right outside of the lottery selection.
247 Sports’ take on the projections was “So begins the projected string of first-round selections from Kentucky with Washington projected at No. 13 overall to the Miami Heat, followed by lethal shooter Herro and combo wing Johnson. Which one of these three Wildcats has the highest upside? It depends on personal preference and system fit. Best-case scenario is Herro mirrors former Kentucky great and Phoenix Suns star Devin Booker’s game as a knockdown shooter and finisher. He has reportedly turned heads during individual workouts and Boston (via Sacramento) has Herro in its crosshairs in the middle of the opening round.”
The NBA Draft in next Thursday, June 20.
