NBA Draft 2015: Pistons may take Devin Booker; likely won't fall past Hornets

Devin Booker could be the third Kentucky Wildcat to go in the top 10 of the 2015 NBA Draft.

When it comes to Kentucky, all of the attention in this year's NBA Draft is centered around (no pun intended) big men Karl-Anthony Towns and Willie Cauley-Stein.

Towns is expected to go No. 1 overall to the Minnesota Timberwolves. Cauley-Stein could go as high as No. 4 to the New york Knicks, but No 6 to the Sacramento Kings seems to be the likeliest landing spot.

However, we could see another Wildcat go in the top 10 if what CBS Sports' Jon Rothstein reports on Devin Booker is true:

Both the Detroit Pistons and Charlotte Hornets could use another perimeter shooter, as well as someone who can actually defend the perimeter. Booker is an underrated defender who is arguably the best shooter in this draft. That combination should get him drafted in the top 10, and it looks like Charlotte or Detroit are his likeliest landing spots now.
