After not hearing his name being called in the NBA Draft it was most certain he would be picked up for a summer roster.
Mouton had some impressive performances at two pre-draft camps. At the Portsmouth Invitational in Virginia, he averaged 22 points and 7.5 rebounds in two games. Later at the NBA's main pre-draft camp in Chicago, he averaged 13 points while shooting 59 percent from the floor. He believed those numbers, along with his constant energy and defensive effort, would make him at least a second-round pick.
