[size=120:1cptt9yx]NBA Mock Draft 2016: Washington's Marquese Chriss soars into top 10[/size:1cptt9yx]Washington's Marquese Chriss could go as high as No. 3, but this mock sees him going to the Kings at No. 8The more I talk with sources around the NBA, the more I'm convinced that Marquese Chriss - a former borderline top-60 prospect in his high school class who played only one so-so season at Washington before entering this draft - really is going to be selected in the top 10 this month. Yes, he could go third overall to Boston, in theory, like some are projecting. But multiple sources have told me somewhere outside of the top five, but inside of the top 10, seems more realistic.Either way, the point's the same: Chriss is going to be a lottery pick.I now have him going eighth to the Kings.http://www.cbssports.com/nba/news/nba-m ... to-top-10/
