Not much changed for Kentucky players in the latest NBA mock draft from DraftExpress.com, which updated its projections on Monday afternoon.
De’Aaron Fox and Malik Monk are still at No. 8 and 9 overall, respectively, in the 2017 draft, and Bam Adebayo dropped just one spot to No. 21 overall. Sophomore guard Isaiah Briscoe dropped three spots to No. 53 overall.
Wenyen Gabriel and Hamidou Diallo are both still absent from the 2017 mock draft and the updated 2018 mock draft. None of UK’s commitments from the class of 2017 are projected as one-and-done selections in the 2018 draft, and UK targets Mohamed Bamba and Kevin Knox are still considered top-10 picks in that draft.
