Chad Ford, ESPN's top NBA mock draft hound, has the Charlotte Bobcats selecting Kansas forward Thomas Robinson with the No. 2 pick, setting up a cascade of decisions that lands Bradley Beal with the Washington Wizards, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist with the Cleveland Cavaliers and, stunningly, Andre Drummond with the Sacramento Kings, or whichever team ends up with the Kings' pick.
Ford also has Ohio State forward Jared Sullinger slipping all the way down to No. 22, and Baylor's Perry Jones III unbelievably dropping to No. 24. Jones may have been a top-five pick had he entered the 2011 NBA draft, and has been projected to land in the lottery for the past year. Falling all the way to No. 24 would be a disastrous drop for Jones, though he would end up in a decent situation.
