This much I feel safe in predicting about the NBA Draft Thursday night: Everyone’s mock drafts will be well off.
That’s because once you get past the first two picks — the Timberwolves taking Karl-Anthony Towns and the Lakers taking Jahlil Okafor — things get unpredictable. Who will Sam Hinkie and the Sixers take at No. 3, D’Angelo Russell or Kristaps Porzingis? Will Phil Jackson trade the Knicks out of the four spot if Towns, Okafor and Russell are off the boards? Then there are a number of teams — Denver is at the top of the list — you can expect to be active with draft night trades.
Jenna Corrado and I try to look into our crystal balls and predict the draft in this latest PBT Extra.
