Some reasoning for me picking

Some reasoning for me picking MKG. The guy has the desire and love of the game. Work ethic is sometimes overlooked when talking about prospects. The man provides leadership and although shot needs work MKG is a outstanding finisher at the rim. His 6'7 230 frame allows him to be a lockdown defender and has the potential to guard at 4 different positions. For me I honestly think Gerald Wallace is his floor. Him and Kyrie have previous played with one another as well which is also a plus.

With the 18th pick in the

With the 18th pick in the 2012 NBA draft, the Minnesota Timberwolves select Perry Jones, forward from Baylor.

Sewok15

"I am a big fan of his game in case you didn't know this already. I think someone will scoop him up before this spot but if he is available here take him over any other mentioned players outside of the obvious shooting guards. I can just picture him now catching lobs from Rubio and although the Wolves have a logjam on 3/4 hybrid players I think they would have enough size for a frontline of Love, DWilliams, Perry Jones III down the road"

Orlando Magic (Cheyenne Lawton) are on the clock

Reason

Mavs need help behind Dirk and while PJIII was available I feel the UK Jones brings more versatility and while he has had his own issues with consistency , I see a better motor and more versatility. With the potential to play both forward spots he could be a matchup nightmare at 6'9+ 250+ and a 7'2 wingspan. Hopefully can give them many of the things they were looking for from Lamar Odom when they picked him up lat year.

Sewok should trade the pick to Me

The T'Wolves get Iggy and the 54th pick

The Sixers get Brad Miller(Buy Out), Martell Webster and the 18th pick(Jared Sullinger/Perry Jones III)... \

it works on the NBA trade machine...

The Wolves get an lock down Sf to run with Rubio, Williams and Love...

The Sixers get an underrated rookie Pf in Sullinger/Jones III and a 3 point shooter in Webster, Miller would be bought out of his contract...

With the 19th pick, the Orlando Magic selects Moe Harkless

With Dwight on his way out, the Magic have time to pick a young guy and hope he improves while they're in the lottery. He can be a great glue-guy in the future if they build a contedor through the draft.

Denver Nuggets (couchgm) are on the clock.

Denver selects...

Is Sullinger still available?

If he is Denver takes him to be our scoring big. Three seven footers in McGee, Koufos and Mozgov can help to make up for some of his issues on D. He will help our half court offence by scoring on the block, from the perimeter and on offensive put-backs. Was a top 5 pick coming in so we take the risk despite the health concerns.

Pick 21-Andrew

Pick 21-Andrew Nicholson-versatile big that can score inside and out. Celtics need size after potentially losing Out on Bass and Green and dare I say perhaps KG?
Pick 22-Jeffery Taylor-NBA ready wing that is a very good athlete and defender. Good role player for the Celts. He's also an underrated shooter and hopefully his offensive skills will continue to develop.

With the 24th pick the Cavs select... Doron Lamb Sg UK

Wow does the Cavs need 3 point shooting badly! With the only serious 3 point threats being Kyrie Irving and Daniel Gibson. Lamb provides another 3 point shooter with solid size at 6'5 200 pounds. Like MKG played for nation championship team UK and provides excellent leadership.

Wow YSU, Jared Cunningham is a reach at 23

Royce White and Festus Ezeli would have been a smart choice to play Pf or C next to Horford...

@Zachb...You also passed on Royce White for an older Sf in Taylor, Why??? You could have drafted Taylor's team mate John Jenkins and that would have made more sense...Ray Allen is likely to leave in FA...

Doron Lamb and Royce White are going to be the best value picks

Along with PJ III and Sullinger...

TOL23, nice combo of Rivers and Henson, that would be very nice for Houston, but in reality I think Rivers and Henson go before The Rockets select at 14...

I knwe people would let bias and Hype get in the way of making smart moves...

Jared Cunninham at 23, maybe you think he'll have an Iman Shumpert type of impact on Defense...The Hawks just don't need a player like that...Wow...I'm amazed...

Rude Boy will have to choose between Wroten Jr and Teague

Royce White sliding this far is unbelieveable...People did hear about him dominating all the other Pf's in the class, and he's about as versatile as a college player gets...Now it looks like The Thunder, Bulls or Heat may get the guy...

Do people know how the Draft works??? You are supposed to draft the best player possible...

Several Players have leap frogged Royce White and for no good reason...Is it because he played at Iowa State???

@Legendary Poster

You're right you know everything (sarcasm). Did you think I forgot that Royce White and John Jenkins were on the board? Danny Ainge said that he is going to be aggresive in making one last run so KG and Ray Allen will return more likely than not. If you watched the Celtics you would see that 90% of the time the offense is initiated by either Rajon Rondo or Paul Pierce, so the Celtics wouldn't even be able to use Royce White's best abilites most of the time. There has been a revolving door of backup wings the last few years and Jeff Taylor would bring more stability there. I think Jeff Taylor's a top 20 prospect because he is, as I said, already an excellent athlete and an excellent defender that can guard multiple positions, and his offensive skills have significantly imrpoved while he was at Vandy and even though he was a 4 year player he still has a lot of potential in the NBA, especially learning behind a crafty scorer in Paul Pierce. So I think when Paul Pierce retires, Jeff Taylor can be the C's next starting SF, and even if Taylor doesn't develop, he can be a very good role player for a decade.

They desperately need a back-up point-guard that plays like Mike Conley and this could be huge help for them off the bench.

Yeah,

Yeah, I wasn't paying attention that White or Teague was still on the board , but I do believe that Cunningham will turn into a good nba player because of his ability to shoot from the perimeter, his ability to attack of the bounce, and his willingness to play defense and get his teammates involved.

Yea I would of taken Royce White at 20 for Denver if it was up to me. Though his anxiety issues do raise some red flags , ability wise he is a top 10 talent.

Seeing as Evan Fournier was the first player drk3351 mentioned in his war room, I'm guessing that is the player he was interested in the most.

The Thunder select Quincy

The Thunder select Quincy Miller with 28th pick, he has great length for an SF and will be great for certain match ups plus he may have versatility to play a position either side of SF in due course. Also he can allow KD to reduce his minutes per game a bit as and when required.

With the 29th pick in the 2012 NBA draft, the Chicago Bulls select, John Jenkins from Vanderbilt University.

It's been known for years that the Bulls need a SG. Rip Hamiliton is just a stop gap. Jenkins will help spread the floor for Rose and will give the Bulls a nice scoring option at the two. He's also said to have a great work ethic and will fit in well with Thibadeau's system.

With the 30th pick the Warriors select Fab Melo.

Melo is a big who can defend and pass. He can anchor a zone, and if he works on his conditioning and shot he can develop an offensive game.

I honestly didn't expect to see him here at this pick, but Melo's got some potential even with his questionable bball iq.

The biggest question I have

The biggest question I have is why would Golden St. take two centers in Leonard (7th) and Fab Melo (30th)? I also thought Jared Cunningham was a head scratcher. Can't believe Royce White fell that low with all the recent hype.

Choices

Never in a million years thought that at 20 Denver would have the choice of Sullinger, Royce White and Dorron Lamb. If the draft works out this way for us I will be extremely pleased. Honestly feel some of the guys drafted from mid-latter stages of the round could settle into the NBA quicker than some of those drafted 1-10.

biggest joke in this mock is

biggest joke in this mock is Wroten falling out of the first round. His shortcoming are well documented on this site and across the basteball universe, but he is one of the few guys in the draft outside of Anthony Davis who has a superstar cieling. I dont see him slipping past any of the teams with two first round picks, and I wouldnt be surprised if portland takes him at 11 next week. I cant beleive a single NBA GM has Jared Cunningham ahead of him on draft boards. Cunningham has all the same red flags- position questions, no jumper, turnover prone, with none of Wroten's upside.

Finally getting a chance to look at the draft! I liked this! Great selections and some surprises in there but its good to see this from a forum. I would love to see how this draft compares to the final mock and the actual draft. Maybe we should see how this ranks (or how many points it gets) on the draft contest.
