A few notes before jumping into SI.com’s penultimate mock draft…
There is a very real chance multiple teams could trade out of the top 10. The Knicks, Kings and Hornets are all open to a trade, and Denver is unpredictable. Several executives say it is as volatile of a top 10 as they have seen in years.
