NBA mock draft 2018: Kentucky’s Kevin Knox to Sixers?

Every year, a few picks become very predictable around the lead up to the NBA Draft.

From a combination of need, value and common sense, locked-in NBA fans can usually peg a certain player or two to a certain team or two in the lottery on an annual basis. This year, that connection led to much chatter about Villanova small forward Mikal Authentic Tyler Flowers Jersey Bridges  and the Sixers.

While that connection could still happen with the No. 10 pick on Thursday night, Philadelphia recently worked out a younger small forward with lottery potential and maybe even more upside: Kentucky’s Kevin Knox.

The site was so desolate, Cherry Hill explored declaring it in need of development in 2014 that would trigger measures that could have led to the township acquiring it through eminent domain.

Gill said the owners cleaned up the property enough to head off that effort but they now face another challenge to becoming the backstop Burzichelli envisions. The site plan for the OTB facility expires at the end of this month.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers upgraded the defensive line as much as any unit in the NFL. The swashbuckling Floridians imported Jason Pierre-Paul, Vinny Curry, first-round pick Vita Vea, Beau Allen, and Mitch Unrein.

It’s not just the imports who could help a previously disappointing group improve. Defensive end William Gholston admitted last week he’s ready to bounce back from the crappy 2017 campaign he authored.

I just played (crappy), completely. That’s just being real, Gholston said, via Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times. There’s no excuse for it. It was awful, crappy. If I said Laquon Treadwell Jersey it once, I said it a million times: It was a (crappy) year. I openly admit to it.

The 26-year-old will get no argument on that assessment. After signing a five-year, $27.5 million contract last offseason, Gholston earned exactly zero sacks with a piddling 36 tackles in 14 games.
