I'd be remiss if I didn't mention that SportsBlogs Nation's NBA contingent put together a mock draft in preparation for Thursday. The collective wisdom has Brandan Wright going sixth to the Milwaukee Bucks. Which is the same result projected by Sports Illustrated, Fox Sports, Yahoo, and Tony Mejia. The dissenters are Chad Ford, who bumps Wright down to the Kings at 10, and Gary Parrish, who votes for the 5th pick and Boston.
Not appearing on many draft boards - although Chad Ford has him as the Hornet's 43rd pick - is erstwhile UNC recruit JamesOn Curry, who surprisingly elected to remain in the draft despite low odds of being drafted. Curry has yet to sign with an agent, which doesn't preclude him from going back to college, but he's announced he's not returning to Oklahoma State, making the whole thing a bit odd. I hope he knows what he's doing.
