Ford: Mock Draft 8.1 | Big Board Top 30 | Top 100

1. Who is the best shooter in the draft?

Jay Bilas: I would tab Nik Stauskas of Michigan as the best overall shooter in the NBA draft. Stauskas has deep range, a quick and high release and the ability to get a shot off under duress. He moves without the ball, can rise up off the run, can catch and shoot and has the ability to pull up and hit with consistency. In a game of H-O-R-S-E, I would go with Oakland's Travis Bader. He may not get drafted, but Bader can stick in the NBA because of his ability to shoot the ball.
