Monk is one of the best shooters in this draft and an explosive scorer.  Any questions about that, check the tape from Kentucky's December game with North Carolina when Monk went off for 47 points including the game winning 3 pointer. He finished the season averaging 19 points per game and shot nearly 40% from 3 point land. This team passed on Devin Booker back in 2015.  Booker ...
