Villanova's Josh Hart is already rising up ESPN's NBA mock draft

Hart is going to have a very tough decision to make.

When Josh Hart and Kris Jenkins declared to the NBA Draft the popular opinion was that they were taking advantage of the new rule that allows players to receive as much information as possible about their NBA prospects without risking eligibility.

H/T to Will on being on top of this one - ESPN's Chad Ford now has Hart as a late first round/early second round pick in his latest mock draft ($). And you really won't like the team he's going to, which seems to be one of the few NBA franchises that valuables basketball players over measurables.

Now, there's a long way to go with the combine and with team workouts until the date (May 25) when Hart and Jenkins would need to remove their names, so things could change. But it would appear as if Hart is going to have a very tough decision to make. His stock may be at an all-time high right now following Villanova's National Championship run, during which he played a starring role.

For what it's worth, Ford also has Mikal Bridges, Jalen Brunson and Ryan Arcidiacono listed on his Top 100 ($), but no Daniel Ochefu or Kris Jenkins.
