Pondexter Mentioned on the NBA Mock Drafts
Since the lottery for the NBA Draft was determined this afternoon, naturally the mock drafts will soon follow. The big winners of the lottery drawing were the Washington Wizards, who drew the No. 1 pick. Most all mock drafts will have them selecting Kentucky's John Wall or Ohio State's Evan Turner, with the Huskies' lone senior Quincy Pondexter appearing later in the draft.
ESPN.com's Chad Ford has Pondexter going 24th overall to the Atlanta Hawks, which would be an especially great opportunity for him. First off, his good friend and summer practice mate Jamal Crawford is there. It would be awesome for Q to have someone he is comfortable with like Crawford to take him under his wing in his early years. Secondly, the Hawks are a playoff team and would allow Q to develop in a winning situation.
In another scenario, Hoopshype.com has Pondexter going 28th to the Memphis Grizzlies. Draftexpress.com also has Q in the first round, going 29th overall to Orlando, again, another great situation where he goes to a NBA Champion-caliber team.
The NBADraft.net mock draft has Pondexter outside of the first round and going 34th to Washington. His status has not changed on this site's draft in several weeks, so it will be interesting to see if this changes in the next day or two.
