2011 NBA Mock Draft: Latest 1st Round Mock, Where Does Brandon Knight Fall

With the NBA Draft Lottery just two days away, the NBA Draft is almost as talked about as the current NBA playoffs.

As in almost every year, there's a handful of players that use the NCAA Tournament as their final interview for the big time. Brandon Knight is one of those players.

He was huge in wins over West Virginia and North Carolina en route to a Final Four appearance for the Kentucky Wildcats. The team that seems to shed its skin each season and still pump out yet another championship contender did it yet again.

Now, Knight waits his fate in the NBA draft. Almost certainly a lottery pick, if not a top five selection, Knight will be ready to make immediate contributions to his new squad. There's even a chance that he'll get to team up with Enes Kanter, who he should have been playing with at Kentucky.

Here's the latest look at the first round of the draft, which is set to take place on June 23.
