With The Lottery Complete, At Least 8 SEC Players Expected To Be NBA First-Rounders

The NBA held its draft lottery last night and a gaggle of sites have posted mock drafts today as a result.  We’ll not bother you with all of them, but to give you a basic idea of the SEC’s prospects, here’s how Sean Deveney of The Sporting News sees things playing out:


1.  New Orleans Hornets — Anthony Davis, PF, Kentucky

3.  Washington Wizards — Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, SF, Kentucky

6.  Portland Trail Blazers — Bradley Beal, SG, Florida

16.  Houston Rockets — Terrence Jones, SF, Kentucky

18.  Minnesota Timberwolves — Arnett Moultrie, PF, Mississippi State

22.  Boston Celtics — Festus Ezeli, C, Vanderbilt

25.  Memphis Grizzlies — Marquis Teague, PG, Kentucky

28.  Oklahoma City Thunder — Jeff Taylor, SF, Vanderbilt


That’s four first-rounders for Kentucky — less than the six John Calipari is hoping for — and two for Vanderbilt.  A player apiece from Florida and Mississippi State bring the SEC’s total number of projected first-rounders to eight.  Not bad for a football league.

And by official estimations, at his current rate of production with one-and-doners, Calipari will have each NBA roster made up completely of ex-Wildcats by the year 2023.  (First, that’s a joke, math heads.  Second, that’s a compliment, Kentucky fans.  Third, it’s a shame that I have to clarify things like that.)



Doron Lamb and Darius Miller are possible late 1st rounders also depending on which mock draft you look at.  Go 'cats.
