Chriss, Murray to be drafted Thursday

Today is the day for Marquese Chriss and Dejounte Murray. The two Washington freshmen, who declared for the 2016 NBA Draft after their lone season with the Huskies was complete, will find out their professional fates Thursday night.

The draft, held at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, will be shown on ESPN at 7 pm ET/4 pm PT.

Both Marquese Chriss and Dejounte Murray have been invited to the NBA Draft ‘Green Room’, so expectation are both will be selected fairly high in the first round.

Below are links to 10 mock drafts, which have Chriss as a near-consensus top-10 pick, while Murray drafted anywhere from No. 10 to Milwaukee to Philadelphia with the No. 24 pick.

The last Washington player to be drafted was C.J. Wilcox, who went to the Los Angeles Clippers with the 28th overall pick in the first round of the 2014 draft.
