C.J. Wilcox is about to embark on the next phase of his basketball career.
The 6-5 guard, who starred the past four years at Washington, is one of 60 players invited to the NBA pre-draft camp in Chicago, which begins Wednesday. The five-day camp ends Sunday.
The other Pac-12 players at the camp include: UCLA’s Jordan Adams, Kyle Anderson and Zach LaVine, Arizona State’s Jahii Carson and Jordan Bachnyski, Arizona’s Aaron Gordon and Nick Johnson, Stanford’s Dwight Powell and Colorado’s Spencer Dinwiddie. Oregon State junior forward Eric Moreland, who left school and entered the draft, and Stanford senior forward Josh Huestis are draft prospects who were not invited to the pre-draft camp.
Wilcox, who is considered a high second-round pick, is one of a half dozen Pac-12 players expected to be selected in the June 26 NBA draft.
NBAdraft.net’s mock draft has the Philadelphia 76ers taking Wilcox with the second pick in the second round (32st overall).
Meanwhile, DraftExpress.com, which produced the scouting report (above), projects Wilcox will land with the Charlotte Bobcats at the No. 15 pick in the second round (45th overall).
If selected, Wilcox would become the 10th Washington player drafted since coach Lorenzo Romar took over in 2002. The others include: Terrence Ross and Tony Wroten Jr. (2012), Isaiah Thomas (2011), Quincy Pondexter (2010), Jon Brockman (2009), Spencer Hawes (2007), Brandon Roy and Bobby Jones (2006) and Nate Robinson (2005).
