We've compiled some of the best mock drafts from around the internet. They're listed below, along with a summary of the draft position for Carolina alums. Where do you want to see your favorite player land (or not land)? Let us know in the comments.

    Barnes to Cleveland at 4 to be the next LeBron there. Marshall to Phoenix at 13 to learn from Nash for a year or so and then it's his team. Could say the say about Dallas at 17 with Kidd and Dallas is Kendall's favorite team but I don't see him being available that late. Henson to Detroit at 9 should be a good fit. Believe he will have a better career than Anthony Davis. Anywhere Zeller goes he will excel. He is the next Pau Gasol. Would love to see a team with multiple 1st round picks get two of these guys! A Marshall/Henson or Marshall/Zeller duo makes any team better.

    Barnes the next LeBron? He has an iffy handle, he lacks explosion, he doesn't finish and his offensive game is limited when it's not one-dribble shoot. This is the second "Kentucky draft" in three years. Cats OWN the NBA in the coming years.
