If you check out a 2015 mock draft you might see Kelly Oubre Jr as high as a lottery pick to as low as an end of the first round pick. That’s because teams are drafting the former Ballislife All-American and Kansas player on potential – big time potential. Athletic 6’7 players with a 7’2 wingspan who can play D and hit the 3 don’t come around too often and Oubre has that and the ability to do much more.
“I’m still growing,” said Oubre at the NBA Draft Combine in Chicago. “And I’m a student of the game… I want to be a two-way player. That’s the new wave. If somebody needs a guy that’s going to be a two-way player that can score the ball and play defense, that’s something I bring to the table.”
He might not immediately set the league on fire but some of these mock drafts believe if a redraft could be done 3-5 years down the line he could be a top 5 pick.
