Wardb12's mock 1.0
With all the mock draft posts, I tried to wait a little bit before I would post mine so as not to clog up the forum. I also wanted to do it an hour before the sweet sixteen starts today, so I am doing it an hour before it starts. If you need any explanations, just mention it. I threw the second round picks in whatever order without really any care because its very hard to predict these picks and they rarely turn out that well anyway.
Note: There will undoubtedly be some trades in the draft so 3 that I have included are Johnny Flynn to Utah for Raja Bell. Minny also trades Rubio rights (but I have no idea where he would go), since they end up taking Irving. Kahn finally realizes he's been a little unrealistic and decides to wise up before he looses his job and takes the real deal PG, Kyrie Irving
I also know that Houston desperately needs a Center. Unfortunately both Kanter and Jonas will probably be gone before Houston is on the block. This may be the only chance Houston gets at a good Center as they are very hard to find in any draft. So I think Houston will not pass this chance up and decide to trade their own pick (Brandon Knight) to Detroit for Jonas. Trade works out perfectly for both teams. Stuckey is more of a 2 guard, so he starts there instead of the 1.
Flynn to Utah for Raja Bell
Rubio's rights traded
Houston's, 14th pick and Terrance Williams to Detroit for 7th pick. (Williams would help Detroit recover from losing Prince which will probably be happen very soon)
Enjoy the mock
I like it but I think Utah takes Brandon Knight if he's still there at 12. The kid has to much potential to pass up.
^^^Yeah I have that feeling too. Utah's 2nd pick will be decided by workouts. Leonard or Knight, whichever one plays better gets the pick. Should be fun and good for both Leonard and Knight.
Great job with that mock draft, probally the best one Ive seen this year. I dont think Milwakee will select a SF because they have Mbah a Moute, Delfino, Magette at SF. I think Utah would pick Knight or Fredette over Kawhi and dont think Motie and Frye would work well. I would switch P.Jones and Valanciunas as well as bump faried up about 10 draft positions. Other then that its a very very solid draft and even without making those changes its very solid. Nice job.
