The 2015 NBA draft is nearing and experts are weighing by releasing a myriad of mock drafts. The consensus seems to be that Karl-Anthony Towns or Jahlil Okafor will be the top two picks in this years draft. However, many experts are debating who should be taken first.
The Minnesota Timber Wolves have the first pick in this years draft and many expect them to take Towns. The freshmen from Kentucky led the Wildcats to the NCAA championship—where they lost to the Duke Blue Devils. He is widely seen as the best athletic talent and continues to separate himself from Okafor.
Okafor, a freshman from Duke, bested Towns in the NCAA championship early this year. Brad Reifler says he is seen as the more polished talent and is widely expected to go to the Lakers with the second pick. At 6’ 11” and 272 pounds, he displays a NBA ready body that is immediately available to play heavy minutes in the league.
As the draft nears, mock drafts will come and go predicting prospects that teams have fallen in love with after their workouts. Yet, expect the top two picks to same fairly consistent with very little change. There seems to be little controversy about over the best talents in this year’s draft.
