A few notes as we wait for the NBA Draft (4 p.m. ESPN; Solomon Hill and Grant Jerrett not expected to be taken until at least 6 p.m.)
- Draft Express moved Solomon Hill up to No. 39 on its new mock draft today, after Hill was in the 50s for most of the spring.
- ESPN's Chad Ford has Grant Jerrett at No. 39 (Portland) in his latest mock draft, with Hill at 56 (Detroit).
- NBADraft.net has Jerrett at 45 but Hill undrafted.
- Jerrett was listed as a second-rounder by two CBSSports analysts, but Hill was not.
