Mock Draft Take 2
Just your standard critique my mock thread with a different title. Help appreciated.
Good Mock, Not sure that Olynyk gets that high but you may be right. I have to say I struggle with Len at 1. He is simply not of that quality but then in this draft you could say that of any of the top 5. Whichever way the top 5 go Charlotte is going to need a quality big man and Noel or Len will be a good option for them
Overall your mock seems solid.
The one thing I doubt is the 76ers and the Thunder passing on Steven Adams if he's available. I think the intrigue regarding Steven Adams size, athleticism, willingness to be coached, and motor will get him selected no later than the 76ers or the Thunder personally. I think Adams will also benefit from the success of another ultra raw super athlete big guy from last years draft, Andre Drummond.
From everything I'm reading Mclmore is dropping, to aroung 5, As a Jazz fan, I'm not sure they go with a point guard at 14 unless MCW is available , and I'm not high on Snell, I think 21 is where the jazz take a point guard. We'll see but I see the Jazz going big at 14.
I changed Len to #1 yesterday because I don't think a guy like him being considered for #1 can be fabricated, I've changed my top pick heaps recently between my top 4 and I'll change it again before draft day.
I'm really high on Olynyk and I think it's stupid that he isn't projected to go lottery by other mocks. I'll put money on him being a success. You're right however in the fact he may drop Marcus.
220, your point is valid but as an NZer I don't want to be too optimistic about where he will land. I'll consider moving him up though as your Drummond point is valid.
Thanks for the help, keep it coming!
This would be the worst draft possible for the bucks they need guards and a small forward no more big men we have sanders ilyasova and Henson....
