Where will R.J. Hunter begin his professional basketball career?
A look at the various NBA mock drafts provide no clear picture where Hunter, the leading scorer in Georgia State’s history, may wind up.
Hunter is a 6-foot-6 shooting guard who declared for the NBA draft after a junior year in which the Panthers defended their Sun Belt regular season title, won the conference tournament and upset Baylor in the second round of the NCAA tournament.
Less than two weeks later, Hunter decided to leave school. He is in Chicago working out and preparing for the Combine in May and the draft in June.
Here is a look at a few that I found:
CBS 30 to Golden State
CBS-3 24 to Boston
NBA Draft 28 to L.A. Lakers
Bleacher Report 15 to Hawks (via Nets)
Hoops Hype 28 to L.A. Lakers
MyNBADraft 14 to Oklahoma
NBADraftRoom 28 to L.A. Lakers
Obviously, if Hunter could land in Atlanta with the Hawks with the 15th pick, Ron and Amy Hunter would be very happy.
Going to Oklahoma City at 14, to play alongside Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook, wouldn’t be bad.
It seems most likely that the Los Angeles Lakers are the landing spot, based upon the frequency in the mock drafts.
Which team would you like to see pick up Hunter?
