The 2016 NBA Draft takes place on Thursday, beginning at 7 p.m. That means one final look at mock drafts to see where three Maryland Terrapins are projected to be taken.
The following is where DraftExpress.com sees each Terp being selected.
Diamond Stone | Freshman | Center | No. 30 overall | Golden State Warriors
With questions about his maturity and the knowledge that whoever takes Stone will be in for a multi-year developmental project on the court, a place like Golden State would be perfect for the one-and-done Terp.
After reaching two straight Finals, the Warriors are in no real rush to plug a player into their rotation from the draft. Instead, they could utilize their well-regarded D-League affiliate to get Stone reps and develop his game before much is asked of him at the NBA level.
The offensive upside is there. He needs to improve defensively, especially in the pick-and-roll, and his athletic numbers raised some eyebrows. Still, at just 19 years old a team should be willing to take a chance on him.
Robert Carter, Jr. | Redshirt Junior | Power Forward | No. 47 overall | Orlando Magic
Orlando has a good young core of players, but outside of Ersan Ilyasova lacks the type of frontcourt floor stretchers that the new NBA demands. That's where Carter could be added to fill a role.
Carter's three-point shooting numbers jumped significantly from his sophomore season at Georgia Tech to his redshirt junior season at Maryland. Expect the upward trend to continue. He also showed flashes of a strong interior game.
His athleticism and defensive ceiling are the things that have pushed him into the second round of many mocks, but the team that takes him could be getting a long-time NBA contributor.
Jake Layman | Senior | Small Foward | No. 52 overall | Utah Jazz
Layman says he models his game after Gordon Hayward, who he would able to play alongside if he were in fact taken by the Jazz in the second round.
The Massachusetts native played a clear role as a defensive agitator and three-point shooter on a talented Maryland team last season. That's essentially what he would be asked to do at the next level.
Aggressiveness and confidence are the lingering question with Layman, though the versatility with his mix of height and athleticism will intrigue teams.
