Jonathan Givony’s mock draft for ESPN has former Kansas men’s basketball star Ochai Agbaji going to the Cleveland Cavaliers with the 14th overall pick in Thursday’s NBA Draft.

Ahead of Thursday’s big night, Chipotle said it was working with Agbaji “to fuel his pre-NBA draft journey.”

That includes a chat with former Rockets/Clippers guard Cuttino Mobley in an Instagram video as part of Agbaji’s paid partnership with the fast-food chain.

Agbaji, the former Oak Park High School star, was asked about his most memorable moment in basketball.

“My freshman year when my redshirt got pulled (in 2019),” Agbaji said. “I wasn’t even supposed to play that season and people didn’t even know who I was and I kind of came out of the gates and that’s just kind of where my story started.”

Agbaji also was asked what he ordered at Chipotle. He gets white and brown rice, pollo asada, tomato salsa, queso blanco, sour cream and cheese, with a tortilla on the side.

Chipotle said it is now offering “The Ochai Agbaji Bowl” on its digital menu on the Chipotle app and at the restaurant’s website. It’s an even 1,00 calories and costs $10.90.
