New Mock Draft
Did a new Mock Draft, this time with comments explaining my reasons for some picks that may seem a little crazy. Let me know what you guys think!
I really doubt the 76ers take CJ McCollum or any other point guard considering its their strongest position. I understand the thought that they could play together, but if the 76ers bring back Evan Turner they have two guys who need the ball to flourish in Turner and Holliday. Overall I really doubt the 76ers would pass on Alex Len if he was available when they pick.
I think Anthony Bennett is a poor fit for Sacramento. The Kings have not proven any ability to effectively develop young talent and don't have a great veteran presence on the team, so I think they need an NBA-ready rookie who has a professional mentality. Guys like Oladipo, Burke, or Zeller would be better fits. They already have too many young scorers on the roster. I think Bennett would just get lost in the shuffle and not develop well, as he is a player who is in dire need of going to a well-coached, veteran team that will hold him accountable for his lack of effort and awareness on the court at times.
Was probably one of the hardest teams for me to mock for the reasons you stated. Sacramento is a mess of an organization. I think a move to Seattle would be beneficial and the Maloof brothers need to step down and they need to hire a veteran HC, kind of like what Minnesota did with the hiring of Rick Adelman.
The draft is before free agency, which I think is kind of weird, but Mavs can't pick based on who they miss out on in free agency since it won't have happened yet.
