2011 NBA Mock Draft: Will Brandon Knight Crack the Top 5?

It was reported today that Brandon Knight will remain in the 2011 NBA draft

Knight has yet to sign an agent, but somebody will scoop him up soon. The stellar point guard had a great freshman season that was capped with a strong showing in the NCAA tournament. Was his performance good enough to get him drafted in the top five? 

It may or may not have been a smart move on Knight's part to stay in the draft because there is a possibility of a NBA lockout next year. However, he is a lock for a lottery pick, and it's very hard to turn that down. Why stay in school when you could be making millions? 

Knight went against the grain this year as several big-time players decided to remain in school. This will greatly help his draft stock.

Other questions heading toward the 2011 NBA draft are who will have the first pick, as well as who will be the No. 1 overall pick?

Several teams have big-time needs, and in what is being considered a weak draft, how many trades will occur?

Shall we mock?
