Georgia Tech v Duke
DURHAM, NORTH CAROLINA - JANUARY 26: Teammates Zion Williamson #1 and RJ Barrett #5 of the Duke Blue Devils battle for a loose ball against Abdoulaye Gueye #34 of the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets during their game at Cameron Indoor Stadium on January 26, 2019 in Durham, North Carolina.

CBSSports.com’s latest mock draft has the standard three at the top - Zion Williamson, RJ Barrett and Ja Morant in that order - but moves UNC’s Coby White up to #4.

Cam Reddish is #8 here (Grizzlies).

Interestingly, CBS doesn’t list Virginia’s Kyle Guy as a first-round pick and neither does NBADraft.net.

Some of the lower picks are intriguing. San Antonio gets Bol Bol at #19. CBS also has Boston taking Florida State’s Mfioundu Kabengele at #22 which would be a great pick for them. The Warriors pick up Kentucky’s Tyler Herro at #28 while the Spurs take Cam Johnson at #29.

We’ll say it again: better to go later to a well-run franchise than early to an awful one.
