The college season is nearly over, and it is still early to consider a mock draft close to a final version of what will transpire with the actual selections on June 28. Postseason camps and individual workouts should offer a chance for more shifts than the tournament offers. Ninety-nine percent of 2011-12 down on the international and NCAA front, forever to go.
There are the important, and possibly obvious, disclaimers:
• The projections, likewise based on conversations with NBA executives and scouts, will change with the lottery outcome May 30.
• Future versions will be adjusted to reflect players who have officially stayed in school. For now, all prospects are considered because front offices are still considering them.
Underclassmen have until 11:59 p.m. ET on April 29 to declare for the draft and 5 p.m. ET on June 18 to withdraw, before individual workouts are close to complete. And individual workouts are a big consideration for teams, in some cases enough to erase a disappointing tournament showing.
