ESPN projects Vanderbilt PG Darius Garland to go in top-5 of NBA Draft after lottery picks finalized
The 2019 NBA Draft Lottery was held on Tuesday night, and boy, were there some fireworks. First of all, the New York Knicks didn’t land the No. 1 overall pick.
Secondly, the New Orleans Pelicans and Memphis Grizzlies moved up to land the first and second picks, respectively.
After Tuesday night’s surprises, ESPN updated its top-five mock draft. As you can see below, Vanderbilt PG Darius Garland is expected to go No. 4 overall to the Los Angeles Lakers:
Should the Lakers pass on Garland, the Chicago Bulls could end up taking him at No. 7 overall. Either way, he’d be landing in an interesting situation.
Where will he end up? We’ll find out on June 20 when the draft takes place in Brooklyn.
