Here's Where Kentucky's Stars Will Be Drafted

Where will Kentucky's stars get drafted this year?

De'Aaron Fox, Malik Monk, and Bam Adebayo all entered the 2018 NBA Draft, but which teams will they land with? Fox is projected to be the first Kentucky player off the board, followed closely behind by Malik Monk. Meanwhile, Bam Adebayo also has a chance to go in the first round.

Let's start with Fox. He's projected to be a top-five pick. Draft Express has Fox going No. 5 overall to the Sacramento Kings. Other mock drafts have Fox going as high as No. 4 to the Phoenix Suns.

Malik Monk has the potential to be a top-five pick, but will likely wind up being a top-10 pick instead. Draft Express has Monk being drafted by the Orlando Magic, at No. 6 overall, right behind De'Aaron Fox.

Draft Express has Bam Adebayo barely slipping outside of the first round, and going No. 32 overall to the Phoenix Suns. If Fox ends up at No. 4, and Bam goes No. 32, we would see two Kentucky stars playing side-by-side with the Suns.

The NBA Draft will be held on June 22.
