The next NBA Draft deadline is May 8. That’s when underclassmen must decide whether to stay in the draft or not.
For UK fans, it’s the day they’ll find out whether Brandon Knight, Terrence Jones and DeAndre Liggins will stay at UK or chance the draft.
Knight and Jones are projected lottery picks. Liggins isn’t listed in any of the mock drafts. For Liggins, the process might just be to see what areas of his game need improvement.
According to Bleacher Report, this year’s draft could have a decidedly Kentucky flavor to it. The online site conducted its own mock draft and several Bluegrass players were taken in the first round:
Shelvin Mack (Bryan Station, Butler) – No. 23 to Houston
Kenneth Faried (Morehead State) – No. 16 to Philadelphia
Terrence Jones (UK) – No. 8 to Cleveland
Brandon Knight (UK) – No. 7 to Detroit
