Another day, another mock draft.
One day after ESPN listed only two Kentucky players — Hamidou Diallo and Nick Richards — in the first round of its 2018 mock draft (and neither was listed as a lottery pick), CBS Sports has four Wildcats in the first round of its 2018 mock draft.
Gary Parrish of CBS Sports has these four Wildcats listed in his mock draft.
12. Hamidou Diallo (Memphis Grizzlies)
14. Kevin Knox (New Orleans Pelicans)
20. Nick Richards (Detroit Pistons)
23. Jarred Vanderbilt (Atlanta Hawks)
That would put Diallo and Knox both in the lottery and continue that trend of lottery picks for UK coach John Calipari.
Knox, Vanderbilt and Richards are all five-star freshmen recruits. Diallo is also a five-star freshman, but he he did spend the second semester at UK.
