New, comments

The NBA Draft is tomorrow night, so these mocks are likely starting to get pretty close to the truth.

We are just one day away from the 2021 NBA Draft, and the mock draft are getting published at a furious rate. I figured we could take one more look at who the people that are paid to be experts expect the Hornets to come away when the dust settles.

ESPN: Corey Kispert, Wing, Gonzaga

Kispert is not a very exciting prospect. He’s a 4 year college player with a low perceived ceiling, but he has an easily projectible role as a sharpshooter from the wing that can pitch in a little bit everywhere else.

Tankathon: Moses Moody, Wing, Arkansas

Moody is a quintessential 3&D wing prospect that showed some upside as a shot creator and play maker in his one season at Arkansas. He’d fill in some much needed wing depth for the Hornets.

NBA Draft Net: Kai Jones, Big, Texas

Jones is going to show up a lot on this list. He has a tantalizing skill set as a big that can potentially stretch the floor both as a shooter and lob threat while providing rim protection and switchability defensively. However, he’s a gamble, as he has a long way to go as a decision maker despite playing two years of college basketball.

The Ringer: Franz Wagner, Wing, Michigan

Wagner brings versatility on both sides of the ball. He’s a plus defender and a plus offensive player that can function as a big play maker on both sides of the ball. But he’s not a big time scorer and might be a jack of all trades, master of none.

The Athletic: Kai Jones, Big Texas

Sports Illustrated: Kai Jones, Big, Texas

CBS Sports: Moses Moody, Wing, Arkansas

NBC Sports: Moses Moody, Wing, Arkansas

Sporting News: Kai Jones, Big, Texas

NBA Consensus Mock: Kai Jones, Big, Texas

So ten mock drafts, four different players picked at 11.

A few of the drafts went two rounds deep. Hornets second round selections in those mocks included Daishen Nix, McKinley Wright IV, Charles Bassey, Matthew Hurt, DJ Stewart, EJ Onu, Sandro Mamukelashvili, Vrenz Bleijenbergh, and Duane Washington.
