Mills and Ogilvy placed high on NBA mock drafts

Just been reading around on alot of NBA Draft websites(Only legit ones), and it seems Ogilvy and Mills are looking nice. Mills is projected to go at #16 in the first round to the Raptors(Imagine that-Jawai and Mills on the same team). Ogilvy is projected to go at #22, which is still 3 places higher than Tyler Hansborogh.
It's crazy how people on here talk about Mills' and Ogilvys' draft stocks going down after a few poor performances. It seems they are still rated highly and look really comfortable to get picked up and get a good paying contract up front

13.3 / 6.9 / 2.7 career averages over 13 seasons ? Wouldnt exactly say he was a bust ...
For true bust-ness, maybe call him the next O'Bannon boys ?

Is ingles a possibility given the aussie league doesnt have the greatest reputation? If the draft is weak then his chances would be greater.

Toronto Raptors - Seemed like a great idea at the time - When Jurassic Park came out!!!... Just sounds dumb now...

Most often quoted by kids under 12 years old at Toronto games - "Daddy - what's a raptor???"...

Damn it, It has just being updated. Patrick Mills is set to go to Oklahoma City now.

Although Pyscho T is the reigning college player of the year - the NBA is a different game. T's bread and butter is banging in the low post, finishing with contact and scrapping. While he excels with this game at the college level, doing this against solid 7-footers in the NBA is a different story.

A.J. on the other hand, has the height and given a few years in an NBA environment could bulk up to be solid NBA centre.

also - check out Draft Express for another perspective.

Yeah, Agree with you Hoops65. Hansborough wouldn't really fit into any position in the NBA. He isn't very versatile either. At 6"8/6"9, he can't be a center in the NBA-Way to small. And he lacks the speed and jump shot to play in the Small Forward/Power forward position. And obviously, cannot be a guard.

He will be a major draft bust.

Thanks Hoops 65, Draft Express is even better for us. It has Mills going at 14 and Ogilvy going at 15.

The two reputable mock drafts I always refer to are: was most recently udated 2 December, and has Mills going at #20 ahead of Hansbrough at #22. They also have Ingles going at #59. Interestingly they have Ogilvy down for the 2010 draft at #19. There was some talk last season that AJ may play 3 years of college ball so he cold get his education. has Mills at #14, AJ at #15, and Ingles at #54 for the 2009 draft. Although the mock has not been updated since the end of October.

draftexpress is the best mock by far.

they've been the most accurate 1st round mocks in the past 6 seasons.

they get the 2nd round wrong, but so do other mock drafts... because they're 100x harder to pick.

hansborough wont be that bad in the NBA. Didn't he win the same bball award Bogut won? I can see him with 15 and 6 and im surprised hes not ranked higher considering hes playing on the best team.

Bogut is a legit big man though. He is 6"11/7"0.
Hansborough on the other hand is only 6"9, from memory.
