Let’s have a look at the latest on the 2014 NBA draft..
- Tyler Ennis didn’t start his season as a projected lottery pick, but his stock has risen over the course of the year and the latest 2014 mock draft from Draft Express predicts that the Syracuse guard will be selected 9th overall. Eric Koreen of the National Post profiles Ennis and explains why he has NBA teams “salivating” over his potential.
- One scout tells Adam Zagoria of The Knicks Blog that if Ennis was in the NBA today, he would be a better point guard than Raymond Felton.
- Cole Aldrich thinks Joel Embiid would benefit from staying another year at Kansas, but he acknowledges that doing so might harm his draft stock. Zagoria has the full story at ZagsBlog.
- In the same piece, Zagoria passes along that Aldrich believes both Embiid and Andrew Wiggins have the potential to be effective in the NBA next year, should they choose to enter the draft.
