Aaron Holiday is projected to get selected in the 2018 NBA Draft. The round Holiday gets picked is uncertain.
Some mock drafts have the UCLA Bruins point guard going in the first round, others have him going in Round 2. The Athletic thinks it’s the former and not the latter.
In The Athletic’s latest mock draft, the Phoenix Suns select Holiday with the No. 16 pick in the first round. The Suns have the top pick and the 16th selection in the first round. Phoenix selects Arizona forward Deandre Ayton with their No. 1 pick in The Athletic’s mock draft.
“I can play without the ball,” Holiday said after a recent workout with the Nuggets, per The Athletic. “I know the game pretty well, and I can shoot the ball and play defense.”
The All-Pac-12 first-team member was one of the best players in college basketball last season. He’s got the skill set to be a solid point guard at the NBA level.
