Coming off arguably the worst season of the Sean Miller era, the Arizona Wildcats are not expected to have any players selected in the 2019 NBA Draft.

It would mark just the third time since 2003 that the draft will come and go without a Wildcat having their name called.

But it won’t be a long drought.

Draft Express, which now operates under the ESPN umbrella, projects Arizona signee Nico Mannion will be the No. 6 pick in the 2020 NBA Draft.

Meanwhile, fellow UA signee and five-star recruit Josh Green is projected to be selected 13th overall.

If that happens, it would mark the first time since 1998 that Arizona has had two players selected in the top 15 in the same draft (Mike Bibby and Michael Dickerson).
