The verdict is out on Colorado Buffaloes star Jabari Walker.
At this rate, Walker is essentially a lock to get drafted in the 2022 NBA draft on Thursday night. The question now is, where does he go?
Walker impressed in the NBA combine and even in events after the combine, so it makes sense why Walker decided to keep his name in and finish his collegiate career with the Buffs.
Walker then got hit hard with NBA workouts from a number of teams, and that is a terrific sign.
In the latest mock draft from Kyle Boone of CBS Sports, Walker was slotted to the New York Knicks with the 42nd overall pick.
Here’s what Boone said about Walker:
Walker’s efficiency ducked off as a sophomore, but his freshman efficiency as a spot-up shooter makes his game easily projectable given his 6-9 frame and length. He can be a two-way wing who crashes the glass hard, defends and knocks down outside shots.
If this is the case, this would be a perfect landing spot for Walker. He would have a solid shot at making the roster and might even be able to earn some quality minutes, especially depending on how the Knicks’ summer goes.
The NBA Draft is almost here, and there is almost no way (knock on wood) we don’t hear Jabari Walker’s name called during the 58 picks.
