Pitt Guard Jaland Lowe Included in Early 2025 NBA Mock Drafts

Pitt Guard Jaland Lowe Included on Early 2025 NBA Mock Drafts. After the Panthers' guard Bub Carrington was selected, it is now Lowe's turn.

Could Pitt have a player drafted in back-to-back years?

Just one day after the 2024 NBA Draft concluded in Brooklyn, New York, basketball-covering outlets across the country are already releasing their 2025 NBA Mock Drafts. In the case of Yahoo! Sports and NBADraft.Net, some of those mock drafts include another Pitt guard — Jaland Lowe.

In Krysten Peek’s Yahoo mock draft that was released on Thursday night, she included the Houston native as the No. 25 overall pick.

In NBADraft.net’s piece from earlier this spring, the site has Lowe going No. 11 overall to the Chicago Bulls.

Lowe turned it on down the stretch for the Panthers in his rookie season, starting each of the final 19 games of the season at the point. He averaged 13.1 points per game upon being inserted into the lineup, forming a dynamic backcourt with Carrington. He then announced his return to Pitt for his sophomore campaign back in early April, shortly after Carrington declared for the NBA Draft.

Earlier this week, Carrington was selected No. 14 overall by the Washington Wizards in the First Round of this year’s NBA Draft.

Lowe put together perhaps his best game as a Panther against Florida State in March, pouring in 17 points on 7-of-12 shooting and adding 10 assists and five rebounds. Lowe’s play down the stretch for the Panthers points to his high upside next season.

He was originally a four-star recruit in the class of 2023, rated as the 89th-ranked recruit in the class by 247 Sports, and he committed to Pitt prior to a standout senior season at Fort Bend Marshall.

Let’s just go a little crazy and go for four years in a row with first round picks. After Lowe we need it to be Maleek Thomas and the year after that Cummings.

Everyone remembers Hinson going off against Duke in Cameron last year but it was Lowe who had the dagger that ended that game.

You know, I think I will just watch that game again just to make sure you are correct. Maybe a couple of times.
