If you haven't checked out our latest mock, there's clearly been some momentum by a few players -- mainly Nevada's Luke Babbitt, Texas' Avery Bradley and Fresno State's Paul George.

At this point, it's looking more and more likely that both Babbitt and Bradley will be lottery picks. The Utah Jazz (at No. 9) and the Memphis Grizzlies (at 12) have both been high on Babbitt for a while, and the consensus continues to grow daily. I'm not sure whom Babbitt will guard in the league, but NBA teams like players who are ready to come in and score right away, and Babbitt fits the description.

Bradley also has gotten more positive reviews in the past few weeks as teams have gone back and looked at more video. The Clippers at No. 8, the Indiana Pacers at 10 and the Toronto Raptors at 13 are considering him.

George is another player whose stock is on the rise. That's in part the result of strong workouts in San Antonio and Chicago against Kansas' Xavier Henry. Sources say that George wowed onlookers in both workouts. Look for the Timberwolves to get to him ahead of the Spurs or Bulls. They've been looking for a long, athletic 2 who can spread the floor.
