Which SEC players will be lottery picks In the 2024 NBA Draft?

With the 2024 NBA Draft this week, I decided to take a look at the three SEC players that I expect to be lottery picks.

Rob Dillingham (Guard- Kentucky)

Another one of Kentucky's top options off the bench, Dillingham was the SEC's Sixth Man of the Year this year.

A three-level scorer and strong ball-handler, there is a lot to like offensively for Dillingham. He can be a rookie that comes in and plays early as a scorer off the bench. He has the potential to continue to develop from there and could be a quality starting guard for someone one day.

As with a lot of high-level college scorers, Dillingham's defense is the biggest concern (as well as his size (6'1, 164) and him not starting for Kentucky). He will also need to continue to develop as an off-ball player.

However, there are not many players with the offensive tape that Dillingham put forward this past season.

In his lone year in Lexington, Dillingham averaged 15.2 PPG, 2.9 RPG, and 3.9 APG on 47.5% shooting from the field and 44.4% three-point shooting.

I believe Dillingham will go anywhere between picks 8 and 15.
