Nerlens Noel Tops Latest Mock Draft
As expected, Nerlens Noel of Kentucky and Ben McLemore of Kansas currently sit atop the latest HoopsWorld Mock Draft. For now, Noel edges out the former Jayhawk.
Collegiate stars Otto Porter (Georgetown), Trey Burke (Michigan), Victor Oladipo (Indiana), Cody Zeller (Indiana), Kelly Olynyk (Gonzaga), and Shabazz Muhammad (UCLA) are projected #3, #5, #7, #10, #11, and #12 respectively.
The mock draft features five international players and is not considered to be a particularly strong class. One prospect who could be rapidly rising may be Steven Adams of Pittsburgh who has impressed at the Combine with his shooting range.
