Brooklyn Nets NBA Draft 2017 – Draft Guide – 7 Guards to Watch
Let’s get started!
High Hopes for the Brooklyn Nets
Donovan Mitchell and Luke Kennard are two guard prospects currently slated in the latter portion of the lottery, jumping up draft boards recently. Previous mock drafts had both ranked in the 20’s, right in the Nets’ range, but now they seem out of reach.
Donovan Mitchell is an explosive shooting guard out of Louisville. Mitchell’s stock rose after the Draft Combine, where he posted eye-opening physical measurements. While Mitchell stands at 6’3”, he boasts a 6’10” wingspan with ideal quickness and verticality. Mitchell delivers highlight dunks, along with an improving jump shot. Mitchell also has great defensive upside, due to his length and motor. After Avery Bradley’s success this season, many NBA GM’s could be salivating over Mitchell’s upside. DraftExpress and The Ringer both have Mitchell slated at the 12th pick.
