2016 NBA Draft: Mountain West Viewer’s Guide and How To Watch

NBA: NBA Draft 2015 Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

The time has come.

After hundreds of mock drafts, rumors, and draft declaration articles, the 2016 NBA Draft is finally upon us. It is also an exciting time for the Mountain West, as two UNLV players - shooting guard Patrick McCaw and center Stephen Zimmeman - are expected to be drafted in the top 40 Thursday evening. Boise State’s James Webb III is not pegged nearly as high, but also has a realistic shot at hearing his name called during the draft.

In last year’s NBA Draft, UNLV’s Rashad Vaughn was taken with the 17th overall pick and Wyoming’s Larry Nance Jr. with the 27th overall pick. The Mountain West has had at least two draft selections in each of the past three seasons, including four in the 2013 draft.
