About this time two years ago, Avery Bradley was finishing up his junior year at Bellarmine Prep. On Thursday, Bradley’s life will change forever when the 2010 NBA Draft begins.
Bradley, a 6-3 shooting guard who played one season at the University of Texas, figures to be picked sometime during the first round. NBA.com has compiled mock drafts from Sports Illustrated, The Sporting News, ESPN, Yahoo! Sports and other media outlets that give some glimpses as to where he might be headed. Five of the 12 mocks have Bradley pegged as a lottery pick — going among the first 14 selections. In the other seven, one has him going 16th, two 18th, one 26th, one 27th and one not at all in the first round.
Here’s an interview with Bradley from earlier in the month after working out for the Indiana Pacers.
