Kentucky guard Rob Dillingham is one of the top prospects in the 2024 NBA Draft. An ankle issue has derailed his predraft process but he will get back on track well before the draft kicks off.

Dillingham will conduct the rest of his activities at the Los Angeles Lakers practice facility on Friday, according to Jonathan Givony of ESPN. It's a requirement he has to fulfill before hearing his name called on draft day. Not being able to participate in much of the predraft workouts was unfortunate but it hasn’t seemed to hurt his draft stock.

Along with fellow projected lottery pick Reed Sheppard, Dillingham represents the last products of John Calipari's Kentucky guard pipeline that has produced a bunch of great NBA players.

Rob Dillingham projected to be lottery pick in 2024 NBA Draft

Dillingham is slated to be drafted 11th overall by the Chicago Bulls in ClutchPoints' latest mock draft. Various other mock drafts have the Kentucky product somewhere in the lottery, as his ability to shoot and score off the bounce is strong.

In 32 games this past season, Dillingham averaged 15.2 points, 3.9 assists, 2.9 rebounds and 1.0 steals per game. He shot 47.5 percent from the field, 44.4 percent from deep and 79.6 percent from the free-throw line. He won the SEC Sixth Man of the Year award and was named to the All-SEC Second Team and the conference's All-Freshman Team along with Sheppard.

Dillingham is a pure bucket, a guard who can light up the scoreboard and shoot from long distance. Any team that gets him will have an instant floor spacer who can shoot off the dribble or spot up. He may be super skinny but he isn’t afraid to attack defenses and try to score against bigger defenders. His playmaking isn’t great but he still had plenty of nice moments where he set up teammates. He could be a nice on-ball defender if he buys into such a role but at 6-foot-2, his impact can only go so far.

Dillingham would fit really well on any team that has a big man to draw attention to the paint and let Dillingham shoot, such as the San Antonio Spurs. But he said that he’ll take on any role that a team asks of him. Teams looking to land a potential star scorer should be interested in Dillingham.

The 2024 NBA Draft is scheduled for Wednesday, June 26 and Thursday, June 27 at Barclays Center. As long as everything goes to plan, Rob Dillingham will be among the top dozen or so players to be selected.
