The NBA Draft often is a place where future millionaires make fashion statements. It's safe to assume former University of Kentucky stars Shai Gilgeous-Alexander and Kevin Knox were making different ones on Thursday night.

The NBA Draft Twitter account tweeted images of both players' suits ahead of the draft, scheduled to begin 7:30 p.m. on ESPN. Knox's suit was fairly standard and was accompanied by a bow tie and a plaid vest. Gilgeous-Alexander's choice was much more ... colorful.

Both players were expected to be selected among the lottery picks (the top 14) on Thursday.

Update: Both Gilgeous-Alexander and Knox were selected in the lottery, and it turns out Knox's suit wasn't so ordinary afterall.
