Davion Mitchell, national champion and Naismith Defensive Player of the Year, was the No. 9 pick in the 2021 NBA Draft. The Sacramento Kings selected him.
Mitchell is Baylor’s first top 10 pick since Ekpe Udoh.
With the Kings nearly trading Buddy Hield today, I’d expect Mitchell to play a lot with De’Aaron Fox and Tyrese Haliburton.
