UK basketball players Bam Adebayo and Isaiah Briscoe took a bit of a tumble in the latest 2017 mock draft from DraftExpress.com, which updated its board Monday afternoon.
While De’Aaron Fox (No. 8) and Malik Monk (No. 9) remained in the exact same positions as the last update, which was three weeks ago, Adebayo fell six spots to No. 27 overall and Briscoe dropped seven spots to No. 60 overall, the final pick in the two-round NBA Draft.
UK freshmen Wenyen Gabriel and Hamidou Diallo are both still absent from the 2017 mock draft and DraftExpress.com’s 2018 mock draft, which was also updated Monday.
ESPN’s Chad Ford also updated his “Big Board” on Monday, listing Monk at No. 6 overall, Fox at No. 9 and Adebayo at No. 25. Ford’s list only includes 30 prospects, which is the number of players selected in the first round of the NBA Draft.
