The NBA Draft is finally here, and Maryland basketball will hope to have two pro selections by the end of Thursday night.
Kevin Huerter should be the first Terp off the board and Maryland’s highest selection since 2013. The sophomore is projected to go in the middle of the first round after taking the NBA Draft combine by storm in May.
After entering the season with lottery aspirations, sophomore Justin Jackson will instead be waiting until much later in the night. The Canadian only played 11 games before being shut down with a torn labrum, and still hasn’t been able to participate in any contact drills. He’ll be hoping a team takes a flier on his upside late in the second round.
The draft will get underway from Barclays arena in Brooklyn at 7 p.m. ET, airing on ESPN. Wait along with us for the next batch of Terps to enter the pros. This is a space to share your thoughts, commentary, or whatever comes to mind. As always, be respectful, and go Terps.
Update 9:38 p.m.: Huerter’s off the board. The Atlanta Hawks took the sharpshooter with the No. 19 pick.
