The latest mock draft is up from SB Nation’s Tom Ziller, and he is going with the flow when it comes to Thomas Robinson’s draft position. The Kansas forward is often predicted to land at No. 2 to the Charlotte Bobcats when everything is said and done. Perhaps Harrison Barnes could creep in given the current rumor, but Robinson is the safest pick for a team that needs a scorer in the frontcourt.
Ziller writes, “Robinson will visit Charlotte on Friday. As we all know, the Bobcats desperately need everything. Robinson is the most readymade prospect at No. 2: he will be able to supply rebounds and interior scoring from Day 1. Mike Dunlap and the assistant coaches will be tasked with turning a productive NBA big man into a stud. The tools seem to be there.”
Robinson has not yet visited with the team which has led some to wonder whether the Bobcats aren’t really interested in Robinson. As for the player’s take, he’s maintained all along he should be the top pick above Anthony Davis to the New Orleans Hornets.
All will be settled on June 28.
