The 2011 NBA Draft is just 48 hours away, which is crazy. It also means that even since Ridiculous Upside posted rumors early Tuesday morning, there are enough for another batch just 12 hours later following a new batch of mock drafts and rumor posts from the big dogs.
Before we get to the rumors making their rounds, Jonathan Givony of Draft Express released his newest mock for Yahoo! and ESPN's Chad Ford put out his first two-round mock of the year. Just for fun, the excellent Eamonn Brennan also released a mock draft of his own, focusing solely on college production.
All sorts of good nuggets on information in those mocks, including the fact that Davis Bertans reportedly has a promise from the San Antonio Spurs, but it's probably best to just go read them rather than me trying to pick out the best stuff.
Speaking of Chad Ford, he also put out his own version of Ridiculous Upside's wildly popular NBA Draft rumors! Ford mentions quite a few potential trades, but the thing most interesting was his note regarding Iman Shumpert.
Shumpert, a point guard out of Georgia Tech who measured out very well physically and athletically at the NBA Combine, was apparently asked to quit working out with other teams after visiting the Knicks according to Ford. That didn't happen, however, partially because he could be drafted four picks ahead of New York if the Phoenix Suns take a gamble.
Aside from the above reading, it's probably not a bad idea to keep track of the rumors that Tom Ziller and company write about as they find them over at SB Nation's NBA Draft page.
