With the NBA Draft two weeks away, mock drafts are starting to appear with a certain former Wahoo, Justin Anderson, predicted to go in the first round in each one. Below is a list of the 22 most recent NBA Mock Drafts, sorted by draft pick order.
Justin Anderson is expected to be drafted between 20th and 27th pick with Portland, Cleveland, and Memphis being the most common landing spots. The Cleveland Cavaliers would certainly be an intriguing team for Justin Anderson since he would join up with fellow former Virginia Cavalier Joe Harris as well as learn from LeBron James.
According to the NBA collective bargaining agreement, the rookie salary wage scale for the first year ranges from $1.2 million for the 20th pick to $930K for the 27th pick. Looking at the chart below, the difference between each slot is worth roughly $50K, but I am sure Anderson is more concerned about being drafted by the team with the best fit for his career.
