Player | Ht | Wt | Pos | Team | Age

Shabazz Muhammad

1. *Charlotte | Shabazz Muhammad | 6-6 | 225 | SG/SF | UCLA | 18

Charlotte needs help every where. Muhammad has most upside since Zeller will stay at IU.

Would like a young center; not close to ready but highly thought of

Passed on Barnes for Waiters trying to make up for that mistake.
Edit

Tony Mitchell

It's way to early to critique a mock draft so just do whatever you want right now after the seasons over then ask for help with your mock.

It's really just to early to tell right now. We haven't saw many of them play against good competition and until then it's really hard to justify any type of order.

Tyler Zeller, Otto Potter and

Tyler Zeller, Otto Potter and Steven Adams are three guys who probably won't go undrafted.

Nash, McCollum and Thomas are probably too high as well.

...

Obviously he meant Cody Zeller, as Tyler is already drafted.

But Zeller, Potter and Adams (if he gets enough playing time and declares) should all be lottery picks.

Like others have mentioned, it is way too early to critique a mock draft. A lot can (and will) change dramatically throughout the year. Lots of freshman to evaluate.

One guy who I think could move into the 1st round is Texas' Myck Kabongo. I like his NBA potential.
