Lonzo Ball just announced he's declaring for the 2017 NBA Draft. It's a no brainer. He's a top 3 pick. Several lottery teams have him No. 1 on their board. Mediocre game tonight won't affect his draft stock much. Put him on the floor with NBA players and he's going to be a monster.

Myron Medcalf ESPN Staff Writer 

John Calipari on Devin Booker: "How you gonna score 70? .... We just had a big win and they're gonna be talking about that all night."

Markelle Fultz, Lonzo Ball, De'Aaron Fox, Dennis Smith Jr., Frank Ntilikina. May be the greatest point guard draft ever. Four of these guys could go in the Top 5
