6 SEC players projected to go in Round 1 of SB Nation's post-lottery selection show NBA Mock Draft
The 2019 NBA Draft Lottery was on Tuesday night in Chicago, and now the 14 lottery picks are set.
That means we’re going to get some updated NBA Mock Drafts, and SB Nation wasted no time publishing their latest mock in the aftermath of the lottery show.
As you can see below, six SEC players are projected to hear their names called in Round 1, starting with Vanderbilt PG Darius Garland at No. 6 overall:
- No. 6 — Darius Garland, PG, Vanderbilt — Phoenix Suns
- No. 18 — PJ Washington, F, Kentucky — Indiana Pacers
- No. 19 — Grant Williams, F, Tennessee — San Antonio Spurs
- No. 20 — Chuma Okeke, F, Auburn — Boston Celtics
- No. 21 — Tyler Herro, G, Kentucky — Oklahoma City Thunder
- No. 23 — Keldon Johnson, G/F, Kentucky — Utah Jazz
The NBA Combine starts on Wednesday in Chicago, so there’s still time for players to improve their draft stock. For now, though, this is how things stand a little over a month away from the draft.
