City of Palms Players lead the pack for upcoming 2018 NBA draft
More than a dozen former City of Palms players have a strong chance to hear their names called in next week’s NBA Draft. DeAndre Ayton, who came to the City of Palms twice with two different schools, is well-positioned to become the fifth City of Palms alumnus since 2010 to go first overall, and half of the top 10 in ESPN’s latest mock draft played in the City of Palms. Mohamed Bamba, another two-time City of Palms participant, set a draft combine record with a 7-foot-10 wingspan and is projected to go at No. 5. Much drama surrounds whether Duke star Grayson Allen, who played in the City of Palms in 2013 with Jacksonville Providence, will be taken in the first round and get the guaranteed money that goes with that or fall into the second.
