NBA Draft 2011: Latest Mocks Have Bismack Biyombo Heading To Charlotte Bobcats

The 2011 NBA Draft is mere hours away, and we're close to the final editions of the mock NBA Drafts that will no doubt be torn up very shortly into tonight's proceedings. But two of the more prominent draftniks are predicting the same first six picks.

That would be ESPN.com's Chad Ford ($) and DraftExpress' Jonathan Givony, who each have a top six that begins with the Cleveland Cavaliers selecting Kyrie Irving with the first overall pick in the 2011 NBA Draft and ends with Czech big man Jan Vesely being selected by the Washington Wizards.

Ford and Givony diverge at the seventh pick, now Charlotte's after the Bobcats' draft day trade with the Sacramento Kings and Milwaukee Bucks. Ford thinks the Bobcats will select Texas forward Tristan Thompson, while acknowledging that Bismack Biyombo — who Givony thinks is bound to be a Bobcat — impressed Michael Jordan at a workout in Charlotte on Wednesday.

If Jordan's history of spotty personnel decisions is any indication, though, Bobcats fans over at Rufus on Fire have some right to be worried about Biyombo coming to Charlotte.
