    Yes in my mind, but I also project Ulis as #1 overall as well as ROY and MVP, so do with that as you will.

    Unless he kills it during his workouts I don't see how he would be.

    Ulis won't be able to guard the majority of starting NBA PGs due to his size. He'll be perfect for a reserve role as the backup PG on a lot of rosters. Late 1st-early 2nd is his ceiling.

    Murray I'd a 1st round lock, probably between 6 and 10. Ulis may be playing his way into the late 1st round. I belive Skal amd Briscoe both enter the draft. Skal will get drafted on potential in the teens and Briscoe will be close between rounds.

    JMO on these guys. I wouldn't draft Skal. Don't think he'll ever be an NBA player long term. Is not a plus at any facet of his game. Decent jump shooter, but NBA teams aren't going to let him shoot that. If he came back and became a stretch 4, then maybe, Channing Frye is the best I think he can do. Hope I'm wrong, he seems like a good guy, I'd love for him to become a stud.

    Ulis will be an NBA PG. Starter on the right team. I don't believe he can't guard at this level. He's short, but only the highest caliber athletes would be too much for him. Not like anyone else can guard Westbrook anyway. Maybe a savvy vet like CP3 could post him. I don't see why he'd defend Steph Curry worse than most. Not a top 5 or probably even top 10, but if you can get him in the 20s, its worth it. If you've got a true rim protector, he can be super aggressive out front and that will hide his size some.

    Murray is a lottery pick. More Jamal Crawford than Steph Curry, but he can be a nice player. Not a great athlete though and doesn't have great handles for a supposed PG.

    Briscoe should not go. Cannot make a roster until he can make a free throw. If he can do that, I think he'd be a really nice guy off the bench because I think he'll get to the line a ton. Good rebounder, solid ball handler.

    Lee is what he is. Energy guy. 2nd rounder. Finds the right team and he can stay for a while.

    Outside of that Simmons should be #1. Ingram is good, but Simmons is phenomenal. NBA All-Star. Would love for him to go to Minnesota.

    Any NBA GM that takes Briscoe is the first round should be fired on the spot.

    What could Ulis possibly improve on next season by coming back? He's gone.

    It is not about Ulis improving on anything. He is a team guy, and for some reason I think he stays, and I will be super happy if he does. The UK team next year literally could be the best all around team Cal has coached. The 16 class is incredible.

    Didn't even think of that. But still, his height won't improve so based on what I've learned this week, he's the same late first/early second round player this year that he'll be next year depending of course on guard talent in next year's draft class.

    Maybe winning a title is his priority, but let's not pretend that's why kids go to UK anymore.

    Ulis is working his way into a late first round pick and will declare IMO.

    He wont stick around and try to platoon again with Monk and Fox.

    I also think Skal enters the draft even though another year or two of college ball would probably help him in the long run.

    He's not playing much this year with the weakest front court UK has had under Cal. Where do his minutes come from next year with the next group of studs coming in ?

    That's the thing about being a freshman and playing for Cal. If you aren't a sure fire draft pick, you need to be concerned about the first rounders he has coming in behind you.
