Updated NBA mock drafts began hitting the Web as soon as the results of Tuesday night’s draft lottery became final, and former UK standout Karl-Anthony Towns seemingly has a great shot of being selected with the No. 1 pick by the Minnesota Timberwolves.
Several mock drafts have Willie Cauley-Stein joining fellow former UK center DeMarcus Cousins in Sacramento, while Devin Booker and Trey Lyles remain possibilities to join Towns and Cauley-Stein in the lottery.
Dakari Johnson, Andrew Harrison and Aaron Harrison are all widely viewed as possible second-round picks for now.
