A Look at the Top NBA Prospects from the Jayhawks

With the NBA Draft now just 10 days away from beginning, here is a look at the top prospects from the University of Kansas with possible landing points.

Jeff Withey: Withey has the ability to be a starting center in the NBA at the right situation. He likely will hear his name called in the second round of the draft with Sacramento or Philadelphia as possible destinations as the two teams need a center. The Kings and 76ers pick at numbers 36 and 37 of the draft.

Elijah Johnson: A possible pick in the second round, Johnson has fallen down some on the NBA radar from last season to this year. Even still, the guard has a strong chance of hearing his name called in the latter part of the draft.

Travis Releford: Releford’s best chance at making a NBA roster will come from free agency. The guard has a winner’s mentality and a great defensive drive making him a viable prospect. Though, Releford’s path to the NBA, will come from free agency.

Ben McLemore: McLemore, figures to get picked either number one or number two in the draft. He and Kentucky forward/center are the likely top two choices.

Kevin Young: Young, another guy who can win though likely will have to go the free agent route.
