The 2011 NBA Draft may have only ended less than 24 hours ago, but there are already predictions out for the 2012 NBA Draft. In a 2012 NBA Mock Draft from The Sports Bank, Kris Joseph of Syracuse is projected to the Boston Celtics with the No. 25 overall pick next year.
25. Boston- Kris Joseph, SF, Syracuse, 6-7, Jr.
An athletic wing player, Kris Joseph needs to become a better outside shooter and more assertive during his senior season to secure a first round spot.
Joseph, a 6-foot-7 junior forward, averaged 14.3 points, 5.2 rebounds and 1.5 steals last season with Syracuse. In addition, Joseph averaged 2.2 assists and 0.6 blocks while shooting 45.6 percent from the floor for the Orange.
Anthony Davis, a forward from Kentucky, is projected to be the top pick by the Minnesota Timberwolves. UNC's Harrison Barnes is projected to the Cleveland Cavaliers at No. 2 and Austin Rivers, the son of Celtics coach Doc Rivers, is projected to be the No. 3 overall pick by the Toronto Raptors.
