CINCINNATI (WKRC) - The NBA Draft will be held on June 21 and with a little over two weeks to go has done a Mock Draft that would be positive for a couple of University of Cincinnati players if it came to fruition.

The Mock Draft has junior guard Jacob Evans going in the first round with the 30th overall pick to the Atlanta Hawks, while senior forward Gary Clark is the final pick, going 60th overall to the Phoenix Suns.

Evans has been rated anywhere from 20-40 in several other Mock Drafts, while most don't have Clark being taken at all.

Two University of Kentucky players - Kevin Knox and Shai Gilgeous-Alexander - are projected in the top 15, while Ohio State's Keita Bates-Diop is a top-20 selection.

Two other UK players - Hamidou Diallo and Jarred Vanderbilt - are second-round selections.
