The NBA combine is a thing of the past and so is the draft lottery, leaving just the draft little more than a month away for the pair of outgoing South Carolina basketball hopefuls.
PJ Dozier and Sindarius Thornwell are seeing their names in mock drafts that have two rounds, with both generally falling in the second round of projections.
NBADraft.net is the most favorable for the former Gamecocks, pegging Dozier as a late first-round pick and Thornwell as an early second-round pick.
Dozier — No. 28, Los Angeles Lakers
Thornwell — No. 38, Chicago Bulls
Dozier — No. 47, Indiana Pacers
Thornwell — No. 57, Brooklyn Nets
Dozier — No. 50, Philadelphia 76ers
Thornwell — No. 52, Washington Wizards
Dozier elected to leave South Carolina after his sophomore season, during which he averaged 13.9 points per game.
Thornwell was the SEC player of the year after having 21.4 points and 7.1 rebounds per game.
