Report: "Tremendous Appetite" From NBA Teams To Trade Up And Draft Josh Jackson Tonight

One prospect is particularly intriguing to NBA teams leading up to tonight's draft.

Kansas small forward Josh Jackson is regarded as a lock to be taken in the first five picks of tonight's NBA Draft.

The question is, which team will pick him? The Celtics at No. 3? The Suns at 4? A surprise team?

According to The Vertical's Adrian Wojnarowski, a number of franchises are weighing the option of trading up into the top four to select Jackson.

At 6-foot-8 with tremendous athleticism, Jackson has the look of a two-way impact player in the NBA. He should be able to get to the rim and create for teammates, as well as guard multiple positions.

If he develops a more consistent jump shot, look out.
