The time has come again for speculations as to who will be drafted by whom after the recent conclusion of the NCAA national basketball championship. One of the fearless 2017 NBA mock draft predictions of some pundits is that Markelle Fultz of Washington University will be chosen by the Boston Celtics. However, other analysts say he will likely land with the LA Lakers.

Markelle Fultz Of Washington Is On Top

It seems no matter where the predictions for the 2017 mock draft point to, Markelle Fultz's future is bright. No one has equaled his point guard college performance so far and he is still 18 years old. His stats per game is impressive, averaging 20 points, five assists, five rebounds and more than 40 percent on the three-point line.

But it is his athleticism, well-rounded game, and next-level skills that have caused some predictions suggesting that he will sustain this kind of performance in the professional league. That is why the current 2017 NBA mock draft puts the name of Markelle Fultz on top of the list of NBA wannabes. Whatever team he settles in will get the most out of their money.

Here Are The Other Predictions

Other 2017 NBA mock draft predictions from pundits have the names of Josh Jackson, small forward from SF Kansas for the Boston Celtics, Lonzo Ball, point guard from UCLA for the Phoenix Suns, De'Aaron Foz, point guard from Kentucky for the Orlando Magic, and Jayson Tatum, forward from Duke for the New York Knicks.

As the days and weeks pass, there will be more 2017 NBA mock draft predictions that will come out. Eventually, however, the draft picture will get clearer as the remaining games of many NBA teams get fewer. The fight at the bottom of the standings will be the battle that NBA fans should watch for. Fans should watch the draft strategies of the Brooklyn Nets, the Los Angeles Lakers, the Boston Celtics and the Phoenix Suns, among others.
