NYFLAVA2K9 2013 Mock Draft Version 1.0
Tell me what you think guys... Feedback is greatly appreciated!
Note: Draft picks are based on each teams needs as the draft order stands as of now. Will update once lottery is done and draft approaches.
No way Jeff Withey goes top 10. Mason Plumlee will likely go much higher.
I agree with you, just the Thunder's only glaring weakness is at Center and Withey seems to be the most NBA ready at that position (Olynyk, Adams etc.) for a team thats built to win now. Of course this is just based off of team needs at this current time, so my mock will drastically change as the draft nears. Mason I agree will shoot up boards probably landing in the mid-to-late teens range. +1 S/N: This has to be one of the hardest drafts I've followed, as there isn't much seperation at all and the highest rated prospect (Noel) probably wouldn't even sniff top 7 in next years draft.
Withey may be the most NBA ready today, but how often to people use lottery picks on the most ready player. If the Thunder got it into their heads that they wanted Withey, they could work something out and trade down for him since his upside doesn't warrant him being a lottery pick.
At this point I have to imagine the Thunder may be hoping the Raptors pick ends up being a top three pick so they can get the pick next year in a better draft.
Or at least I should say should go top 10.
Your first nine looks good to me. After that it goes downhill from there.
Yeah after that it's a coin toss. I personally feel MCW and KCP will go much higher once the draft rolls around.
Michael Carter-Williams won't drop that far, and most likely won't drop out of the top 15 as long as he doesn't blow it in the combine
I don't think the Celtics will pass up on Giannis Adetokoubo. Although I'm a Goodwin fan, they've already got 3 undersized 2 guards, and apparently Danny Ainge likes Giannis
