Two future Kentucky basketball players are projected as lottery picks in the latest 2021 NBA mock draft from ESPN, which features a list filled with familiar names.
Shooting guards Brandon Boston and Terrence Clarke are placed at No. 8 and No. 10, respectively, in the mock draft posted by ESPN on Monday morning. They are the two highest-rated prospects in UK’s No. 1-ranked recruiting class for next season.
Former UK point guard target Cade Cunningham is No. 1 on ESPN’s list. He’ll play his freshman season for Oklahoma State. Jalen Green, another former Kentucky target, is No. 2, and he’ll spend next season in the G League’s new professional development program.
