2009 NBA Mock Draft

June 25, 2009 |


     Here is my best projection of the 2009 NBA draft. Of course I can’t take into account the many trades that undoubtedly happen, especially in the second round. But I did wait long enough to get in the Shaq and Richard Jefferson trades. It will be a fun night, but with the Wizards not drafting until 32, there won’t be much local flavor. I’m excited though, with two Louisville Cardinals going in the first round. Anyway, here goes.
