Possibly My final Mock

Here is a look at what could possibly be my final mock. Click on the to the left. I decided to leave the comments because they just take too long to add and then when you change picks, you have to change the comment as well. So it just becomes useless to me. So if you have any questions and you need an explanation please ask in the comments and I will be happy to explain. I think this will be my final mock, I am very happy with it, but I am willing to change a few picks if absolutely necessary.

Hope you all like it.

Name one scorer on that

Name one scorer on that Roster, Frank Vogel needs some offensive punch on his Team.. Monk could come in and be a very solid scoring option for Orlando on day1.. I love Tatum in Orlando as well. I just dont see him around at 6

I just can't seee how Phoenix

I just can't seee how Phoenix takes Tatum over fox. Pairing fox and Booker in the back court could end up being a better version of wall & Beal

That may be the one change I make.

I've thought of that too, and that may be the one change I make. My dream scenario is that Jackson ends up in Phoenix. To me Jackson's defense would be perfect next to Booker. Unfortunately Boston ruined that by making those rumors that they really liked Jackson and then traded down to get him at 3. I still like scenario, so I'm hoping that by selecting Tatum, Phoenix can work out a trade with Boston to get Jackson. But I think my fantasy is getting the better of me. I just hope that TJ Warren fully develops. Because this team really looks pretty good. They could be very close to playoff caliber.

Fox really likes Kings, and cancelled workout with Suns.

I just found out from Chad Ford of ESPN that Fox has already cancelled a workout with the Suns, and doesn't plan on working out for that team by the time the Draft rolls around on Thursday. He really likes the idea of playing in Sacramento.

Would Phoenix select someone they haven't brought in for a workout? Right now its a very close decision between Tatum and Fox.

I've also heard that even though Tatum wouldn't play well with TJ Warren, the Suns do plan to trade Warren if they select Tatum at 4. We might have a draft day trade between the Suns and Kings in the works.

Minnesota picking Monk seems

Minnesota picking Monk seems very incoherent. Especially with Ntilikina or Isaac available, both way better fits with who they have and Thibs.

My thinking with the Minny pick

Here's my thinking with Minny picking Monk. I think Isaac is a bust. He didn't look that good at Florida St. to me. He disappeared too many times when the Seminoles needed him the most. He airballed a ton of shots. I just don't see the potential that so many other people have been raving about. And Isaac just seems to skinny and too weak to even play the PF, he's going to have to gain a lot of weight and I don't know if that will hold up. If I'm Minny I want a much safer, more defensive, and a bettter back to the basket big who can also stretch the floor next to KAT. And that isn't Isaac. Hasn't shown enough to me to be that. Ntilikina is also a little questionable and to me seems too similar to Lavine who they already have. Would that pairing really work?

So I have Monk there because I think he would be a good 6th man in the NBA today. I also know that Minny doesn't really like Dunn all that much. But I don't think they should give up on him quite yet. Monk was credited by Fox of developing a second skill to his shooting that no one really knew much about- his passing. He could become a better version of CJ McCollum. I have Monk there because Minny wants to challenge Dunn to become a better player. Select a couterpart and run that backup PG battle. See who becomes the better player and trade the lesser one. Also by doing this Minny finds their perfect 6th man and that's another need Minny has. Hopefully they are able to find there PF that fits next to Towns next year. (I'm praying its Jaren Jackson Jr.)

Isaac is a bust and he hasn't

Isaac is a bust and he hasn't played a pro game yet? whatever.

He is skinny for a pf, but so was Bosh coming into the league.

this guy has elite length and beautiful shot mechanics, you don't know much about him I am guessing. He should be able to guard 1-4 from day one. and even if he never develops a better handle, he will be regarded as one of the best defensive prospects of the past 5 drafts.,

If T-wolves pass on Isaac its because they want Zack Collins or Lauri Markkanen , which would be more reasonable than Monk. Unless you think Lavines career is over...not likely.
