MANILA--Mock drafts that were released following the result of the NBA Draft Lottery on Wednesday (Philippine Time) have rising Slovenian baskteball star Luka Doncic or DeAndre Ayton going 1-2 in the draft proper set on June 22 (Philippine Time).

But for Willie Cauley-Stein, Sacramento, which owns the second pick, can go a bit deep into the pool.

"I would love to [see Sacramento] pick Trae Young or Michael Porter," said the Kings center, who is in the country for the Jr. NBA National Training Camp.

The sixth pick of the 2015 draft explained, "I wanna see them do as well as I'm doing."

Both Young and Porter declared for the draft following just one year of play in Oklahoma and Missouri respectively. They are projected to be selected within the fourth to the eighth picks.

Phoenix will select first followed by Sacramento and Atlanta.
