Roc Nation Sports 2017 NBA Draft Class
Roc Nation Sports has signed three players for the 2017 NBA Draft. Villanova guard Josh Hart, Florida State guard/forward Dwayne Bacon, and Oregon forward Chris Boucher have all turned to the Roc for representation. Joe Branch will represent Josh Hart, Roger Montgomery will represent Bacon and Sam Permut will represent Boucher.
Josh Hart played all four seasons at Villanova and was a crucial member of the 2015-16 National Championship team. Hart was the Big East Player of the Year and a consensus first-team AP & USA Today All-American. Hart is currently projected to be a second-round draft pick by DraftExpress.com.
Dwayne Bacon is a sophomore from Florida State that came to FSU as the most-heralded recruit in program history. Many thought Bacon would go pro last year alongside his freshman running-mate Malik Beasley (19th overall pick in 2016) but he decided to come back for his sophomore season. Bacon averaged 15.8 ppg as a freshman (FSU freshman record) and 17.2 ppg as a sophomore. Bacon is projected as a second-round draft pick by DraftExpress.com.
Chris Boucher is a senior from the University of Oregon that led the Pac-12 in blocked shots in 2015-16. Boucher was having another terrific senior season that was cut short when he suffered a torn ACL in the Pac-12 tournament. Boucher is currently not projected to be drafted by DraftExpress.com
