Gene Wang of The Washington Post has put together his own predictions for the first 15 picks of this week’s NBA draft. Ex-SEC players make up more than 25% of his picks and exactly one-third of his selections are ex-Kentucky Wildcats.

3. Bradley Beal, SG, Florida — Washington
5. Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, SF, Kentucky — Sacramento
15. Terrence Jones, PF, Kentucky — Philadelphia
