The NBA draft lottery was held Tuesday night, spawning a fresh round of mock drafts.
Arizona wing Solomon Hill and power forward Grant Jerrett just got done participating in last week’s NBA Draft combine, so scouts and media were able to get a good look at each and further evaluate their skills.
Hill, all along, has been considered second-round material, and the new mock drafts reflect a holding pattern.
Jeff Goodman of CBSSports.com moved Hill up four spots to No. 52, going to Minnesota. Wrote Goodman: “Big-time athlete who could become a defensive stopper. Has really improved his perimeter shot.”
DraftExpress.com pegs Hill at No. 56 to Detroit.
It’s with Jerrett that things are more up in the air. His curious decision to leave after his freshman season had some wondering if he would be drafted at all.
