You're all caught up from last night's NBA draft, right? Nerlens Noel dropped to sixth, Archie Goodwin sneaked into the first round, and then both got traded.
But that was yesterday. Kentucky fans are already looking forward to the 2013-14 season, which could become a launching pad for one of the Wildcats' biggest crops of draft picks ever.
Gary Parrish released his first look at the 2014 NBA draft this morning and even though it's only the lottery, it includes four Wildcats. He has Julius Randle going second (behind Andrew Wiggins), Willie Caulie-Stein going sixth, Andrew Harrison going seventh, and Aaron Harrison going 13th.
There are other mock drafts out there, but they've all been posted before. Draftexpress.com has five UK players in the first round, though most of them aren't going quite as high as in Parrish's mock.
NBAdraft.net has four Kentucky players going back-to-back-to-back-to-back in the lottery, then has Alex Poythress dropping to the top of the second round.
