For some, hearing their names called in the NBA Draft is the crescendo of their basketball lives. The countless hours in the gym and sleepless nights, led to many collegiate and overseas players putting all of their eggs in an NBA basket.
In spite of the work they’ve put in, however, some will be left heartbroken when all 30 NBA teams bypass them altogether. For the LA Clippers, with only one pick in this year’s draft, the 43rd overall selection, their scouting department will have their work cut out for them as they attempt to find a diamond in the rough. Although the franchise has been recently linked to Izaiah Brockington, there are a number of players who are likely to go undrafted, making the free agent talent pool a robust one.
While it’s difficult predicting which players will go undrafted, we’ve taken a hard look at several mock drafts, as well as making a few of our own. We now feel comfortable and confident in who will hear their name called and who will not.
So who are the likely best players that won’t get drafted and who should the Clippers pounce upon subsequently? We’ll tell you right now.
