The 2021 NBA Draft will take place on July 29, and the Indiana Pacers are projected to select shooting guard James Bouknight from UConn in Bleacher Report's NBA Mock Draft.
Bouknight just finished his sophomore season in Connecticut and is 20-years-old from Brooklyn, New York.
On the season, he averaged 18.7 points and 5.7 rebounds per game for the Huskies.
Some highlights from Bouknight's great season can be seen below in a Tweet from theScore.

After completing the year as the ninth seed in the Eastern Conference and having many injuries that they could not control, they failed to meet a lot of expectations. Pacers' President of Basketball Operations, Kevin Pritchard, did not commit to keeping Bjorkgren for next season in his end-of-season press conference. CLICK HERE.
