The NBA Draft Combine is over, team workouts are happening, and trends are developing in mock drafts across the web.
And where do they project the Arizona Wildcats’ prospects will be selected? Let’s take a look.
Reminder: the draft is June 21.
NBADraft.net — No. 1 overall (Phoenix Suns)
ESPN — No. 1 overall (Phoenix Suns)
Bleacher Report — No. 1 overall (Phoenix Suns)
Tankathon.com — No. 1 overall (Phoenix Suns)
Sports Illustrated — No. 1 overall (Phoenix Suns)
The Athletic — No. 1 overall (Phoenix Suns)
azcentral — No. 1 overall (Phoenix Suns)
If it wasn’t for our good friend Ricky O’Donnell over at the SB Nation mothership, Ayton staying in Arizona would be a unanimous projection.
Even still, this overwhelmingly majority is different from what we saw a few weeks ago, when experts were split between Ayton and Luka Doncic for the No. 1 pick.
But at this point, Ayton looks like a shoe-in to become UA’s first No. 1 overall pick.
Alkins’ stock hasn’t changed much, despite a pretty strong showing at the combine — he’s widely viewed as a second-round pick. Where in that round he gets selected obviously remains to be seen.
A first-round selection seems unlikely, but it all it takes is one team to pull the trigger.
ESPN — undrafted
NBADraft.net — undrafted
Tankathon.com — undrafted
Sports Illustrated — undrafted
The Athletic — undrafted
While recent projections have been favorable for Ayton, the opposite can be said for Trier, who is not listed in any major publication’s mock draft.
