DRAFT WATCH #6 - Post-lottery mocks like Bol Bol for Nets

The post-Lottery mock drafts are starting to roll out and although the Nets draft picture remains muddy —what will they have to give up to dump Allen Crabbe’s contract— the draftniks think they will once again go for the best player(s) available.

And once again, the same names pop up next to the Nets at No. 17 on the mocks: Tennessee power forward Grant Williams; North Carolina small forward Nassir Little; Rui Hachimura, Gonzaga power forward and Bol Bol, the 7’2” Oregon center who’s injured are all listed at No. 17, where the Nets will pick first. Brooklyn also holds the Nos. 27 (Nuggets) and 31 (Knicks) picks. For the ninth straight year, the Nets will host the Draft on June 20.

In this week’s round-up, the two top vote-getters are Bol at 17 and KZ Okpala of Stanford at 27. Bol is linked to the Nets in five and Okpala in four of the 15 mocks we follow. Only five of the mocks look at the second round.

One thing missing from the compilation: international players. Only two mocks show the Nets taking an international player at any of their current spots. The Nets last three picks have all come from overseas.

So here they are, the post-lottery mocks, which will no doubt be updated over the next 24 hours as draftniks sort through the tea leaves of Tuesday night’s results.
