2014 NBA Mock Draft Update: Kentucky Wildcats Decisions Nearing An End


It’s that time of the year again, folks. The waiting game is in full swing, with the Kentucky Wildcats getting set to make their decisions this week. While news can break at any moment about any player, the biggest thing that fans should look at in addition to this is the NBA mock drafts. It is these that many sources are contacted to fill out. Often times, the same sources that are in contact with the players and families to tell them where they might go. So, with that on your mind, let’s take a look at what the latest 2014 NBA mock draft projections are saying with a list by KSR.

The Sporting News
5) Julius Randle (Boston Celtics)
13) James Young (Minnesota Timberwolves)
21) Andrew Harrison (Memphis Grizzlies)
25) Aaron Harrison (Houston Rockets)

4) Julius Randle (Utah Jazz)
11) James Young (Denver Nuggets)
30) Andrew Harrison (San Antonio Spurs)
40) Aaron Harrison (New Orleans Pelicans)

One thing that stands out is the Harrison twins rise in some of the more credible mock drafts. All the way up to the mid-20s could very well sway them to go pro if this is a guarantee. Of course, this is only on a guarantee…something that is far from a given in the realm of professional sports. With the given information, I’m going to go ahead and say that Julius Randle is the only remaining decision to announce he is going pro. And is that is the case, then next year’s team is going to be scary. With that, Cats fans, stay tuned and hold on. It’s gonna be a nerve-wracking week ahead.
