With the NBA Draft taking on Thursday night at 7:00, here is a rundown of some former Michigan High School Basketball players who could hear their names called.

Deyonta Davis, Muskegon – After spending just one year in college at Michigan State, the former Muskegon big man, who helped lead the Big Reds to the Class A state title in 2014, proved himself to be a sure-fire first round pick on Thursday night. Standing at 6-foot-11, Davis is considered to be a first round draft pick and could be selected as high as a late lottery pick in the 10-14 range on Thursday night.

Denzel Valentine, Lansing Sexton – Another player who helped lead his team to a state championship, Valentine had a highly successful NCAA career at Michigan State, where he won National Player of the Year last season. Valentine is a 6-foot-6 wing player, who is regarded as a versatile prospect and is projected to be drafted in the first round, as high as the mid-to-late teens on draft night.

Kay Felder, Detroit Pershing – One of the most exciting players in all of college basketball in the past couple seasons at Oakland University, Felder surprised many by declaring for the draft after his junior year. A 5-foot-9 point guard, Felder is expected to be drafted at some point in the second round, and his impressive showing at the NBA Draft combine and elite athleticism could help him get drafted in the early stages of round two.
