NBA Mock Draft 2015: Six Kentucky Wildcats Go In First Round

5 of 7

Apr 4, 2015; Indianapolis, IN, USA; Kentucky Wildcats forward Trey Lyles (41) dunks the ball during the first half against the Wisconsin Badgers of the 2015 NCAA Men

16. Boston Celtics

18. Trey Lyles may not be the rim protector the Celtics need but his ability to play multiple positions will be an asset.. Power Forward. Kentucky. Trey Lyles. 16. player

17. Milwaukee Bucks

Small Forward. Kansas. Kelly Oubre. 17. player. 89. The Bucks already have a lot of young talen but it is too early in the draft to think about a player to stash in Europe for a season or two. Here the Bucks can take Kelly Oubre who might need some time to adjust after having some attitude problems at Kansas, but who could also turn into one of the ten best players from this draft.

18. Houston Rockets (from New Orleans Pelicans)

169. The Rockets need to find their point guard of the future and find themselves in a nice spot to fill that need.. Point Guard. Duke. Tyus Jones. 18. player

19. Washington Wizards

19. player. 142. The likely departure of Paul Pierce leaves a hole on the wing. Anderson fills that nicely with his ability to shoot from distance and is one of the best defensive players in the draft. Even if Pierce does end up returning to Washington, this is a nice pick for the Wizards.. Small Forward. Virginia. Justin Anderson

20. Toronto Raptors

Small Forward. Arizona. Rondae Hollis-Jefferson. 20. player. 81. The Raptors might want a better offensive player from this pick but Hollis-Jefferson brings a wealth of physical tools and is solid defenively. They will hope his offensive game catches up.
