On Thursday, Sports Illustrated’s Jeremy Woo released his latest mock draft, which included Pitt forward Justin Champagnie.
Woo has the 6-foot-6 Champagnie going 43rd to the Raptors (Via Warriors). This prediction comes after Champagnie announced that he would officially be testing the draft process back on March 23.
“After talking it over with Coach Capel, my other coaches and my family, I have decided to test the NBA Draft process,” Champagnie said. “The feedback I will gain from meetings, workouts, and outside evaluations will shape the final decision on whether to remain in the draft or return to the University of Pittsburgh for my junior season. This process will only help my development and allow me to become a better player at Pitt or in the NBA.”
The First Team All-ACC Champagnie averaged 18 points and 11.1 rebounds per game for the Panthers in this his sophomore season. Champagnie put up two 20-point, 20-rebound games, and scored in double digits in every single game of the year. He also put up 20+ points in seven games, including a season-high 31 in Pitt’s win over Duke.
Earlier on Thursday, ESPN also released its latest mock draft, and the company did not have Champagnie getting drafted.
