Player | Ht | Wt | Pos | Team | Age

Andrew Wiggins

  1. Cleveland | Andrew Wiggins | 6-8 | 200 | SF | Kansas | 19

#1 on my big board, I don't question his assertiveness. He needs reps on his J and ball handling but those can be refined. His physical gifts can not be taught. I see him in the mold of a Dominique Wilkins and Carmelo Anthony. Score and rebound but not a creator for others. He will also learn to guard the other team's premiere wing players. Think he is a special talent that will make 10 or more all star appearances. Milwaukee plays him at the 2 next to Giannis. It may not be pretty early on but I think they both become capable shooters and eventually form one of the toughest 2\3 combos in the league.
Jabari Parker

  2. Milwaukee | Jabari Parker | 6-9 | 240 | SF/PF | Duke | 19

I am sold on Jabari. He may struggle early on(all rooks do) but this guy I think is the surest bet to be a 25ppg guy in his career in this draft. I think he is more Paul Pierce than Melo but he has good qualities of both. Philly gets probably the surest bet to be a star and a good chance of producing back to back ROY.
Joel Embiid

  3. *Philadelphia | Joel Embiid | 7-0 | 250 | C | Kansas | 20

Embiid has all the tools. Cavs need a C of the future. Embiid has Patrick Ewing in his game and in a league short of quality big men JoJo can dominate.
Dante Exum

  4. Orlando | Dante Exum | 6-6 | 196 | PG/SG | Australia | 19

I think this kid will be great. John Wall like and his shot doesn't look terrible to me. Just another guy that will struggle at first but will show the flashes of what he will become. High teens and 8-9apg in his prime probably 4-5 rebounds as well. Plus he could form a good defensive backcourt with Oladipo.
Aaron Gordon

  5. Utah | Aaron Gordon | 6-9 | 220 | PF | Arizona | 18

I am not sure how likely this is. Heard he has been shooting the corner 3 well in workouts. Could be a guy that gets minutes at the 3 and 4 early until he settles into a position.
Marcus Smart

  6. *Boston | Marcus Smart | 6-3 | 227 | PG | Oklahoma State | 20

A guard that gives Boston some flexibility with Rondo and Bradley. This makes Boston a strong tough defensive backcourt
Julius Randle

  7. LA Lakers | Julius Randle | 6-9 | 250 | PF | Kentucky | 19

BPA. Not an immediate need but Charlotte is lucky he dropped and scoops him up. Learns from Big Al who was similar at the same stage.
Noah Vonleh

  8. Sacramento | Noah Vonleh | 6-9 | 247 | PF | Indiana | 19

Sacramento gets a steal as Vonleh drops due to the Gordon and Levine spikes in this latest version. Perfect fit in theory next to Demarcus. Not a big difference maker at first but could form a deadly frontcourt in a few years.
Gary Harris

  9. *Charlotte | Gary Harris | 6-4 | 205 | SG | Michigan St. | 19

A team deprived of guard play, Harris gives them someone that can get his own shot. He is a little smaller than you like but it won't hurt him too much.
Nik Stauskas

  10. *Orlando | Nik Stauskas | 6-6 | 207 | SG | Michigan | 20

Stauskas is 2 guard I think that has the highest floor of the upperclass 2s in this draft. He does not have the ceiling but I think his steady play and shooting is what this young team needs.
Dario Saric

  11. *Chicago | Dario Saric | 6-10 | 225 | SF/PF | Croatia | 20

A bit of a drop but the talent is there. Atlanta takes a chance and picks up a guy that will help when he comes over being next year or a year later.
Rodney Hood

  12. *Philadelphia | Rodney Hood | 6-8 | 208 | SF | Duke | 21

Adds a shooter to the team. I am not sure about Hood but he could be a nice player.
Zach LaVine

  13. *Minnesota | Zach LaVine | 6-6 | 180 | PG/SG | UCLA | 19

Maybe not the smartest move but the Lakers go with potential. He learns from both Nash and Kobe and could be the future.
Elfrid Payton

  14. *Phoenix | Elfrid Payton | 6-4 | 185 | PG | Louisiana Lafayette | 20

Sometimes I am high on him and sometimes a bit lower. Here I am a bit lower. Doesn't look to be a guy that will be a good shooter. Good change of pace guard from Burke and could play with him in spurts.
James Young

  15. *Atlanta | James Young | 6-6 | 215 | SG | Kentucky | 19

A little streaky for my taste but has a good amount of potential. Needs to refine his ball handling and gain more consistency before he can be the elite 2 guard of this class.
Jusuf Nurkic

  16. *Denver | Jusuf Nurkic | 6-11 | 280 | C | Bosnia & Herzegovina | 20

Noah won't be playing forever and Chicago has a history of drafting International guys. High potential pick and won't come over right away. Chicago sticks to its ways.
Doug McDermott

  17. *Boston | Doug McDermott | 6-7 | 220 | SF | Creighton | 22

Adds a shooter and a guy that can post up many starting SFs and most bench ones. I think he will have a solid pro career.
Adreian Payne

  18. *Phoenix | Adreian Payne | 6-10 | 240 | PF | Michigan St. | 23

A Channing Frye replacement. Payne can be a tough post defender and can knock down shots while adding some athleticism. Good pickup for Phoenix.
Shabazz Napier

  19. *Denver | Shabazz Napier | 6-0 | 175 | PG | UConn | 23

Experienced in big games, Shabazz gives the Bulls a guy that create for himself and others. Fierce competitor and I think he is a good sixth man for the Bulls.
Tyler Ennis

  20. Toronto | Tyler Ennis | 6-2 | 180 | PG | Syracuse | 20

A little Lowry insurance. A better backup than Vazquez as he can shoot at a more consistent rate.
TJ Warren

  21. *Oklahoma Cty | TJ Warren | 6-8 | 220 | SF | NC State | 20

Warren falls to the second round and is a steal for Cleveland. He could be their starting SF one day.
Clint Capela

  22. Memphis | Clint Capela | 6-11 | 222 | PF/C | Switzerland | 20

The Clippers need some help but think they have their core locked up and will add pieces via FA. They can stash Capela a few years and maybe he can help in a year or two.
Jordan Adams

  23. *Utah | Jordan Adams | 6-5 | 209 | SG | UCLA | 20

Bench spark plug. Could play right away for Charlotte.
Glenn Robinson III

  24. *Miami | Glenn Robinson III | 6-7 | 211 | SF | Michigan | 20

GR3 is a guy that I like despite lack of production but he showed he can be a good glue guy his freshman year. Jeff Taylor is coming off major surgery and MKG is a solid guy but there is no standout at the 3. I like GR3 shooting form though and has good defensive potential.
Artem Klimenko

  25. Houston | Artem Klimenko | 7-0 | 245 | C | Russia | 20

Jerami Grant

  26. Charlotte | Jerami Grant | 6-8 | 214 | SF | Syracuse | 20

Tough for Grant as he falls to 2nd round. Detroit takes a chance.
Damien Inglis

  27. *Phoenix | Damien Inglis | 6-9 | 240 | SF/PF | France | 19

In Spurs fashion, they draft and stash. Inglis looks really good on tape and could be a heck of a player down the road.
KJ McDaniels

  28. LA Clippers | KJ McDaniels | 6-6 | 196 | SF | Clemson | 21

Maybe a bit of a reach but an athletic wing defender is sorely needed in Houston. Needs to become a consistent shooter to be most effective.
Bogdan Bogdanovic

  29. Oklahoma Cty | Bogdan Bogdanovic | 6-6 | 205 | SG | Serbia | 22

Stash
Kyle Anderson

  30. San Antonio | Kyle Anderson | 6-9 | 230 | SF | UCLA | 20

Finally!! Anderson is off the board and in the 1st round. Think this is probably as good a fit as it gets. Shooters, athletes and slashers everywhere. Anderson can take his pick of who to pass to. Hopefully they can find someone for him to guard so he can stay on the court.
CJ Wilcox

  31. Milwaukee | CJ Wilcox | 6-5 | 201 | SG | Washington | 23

Adds shooting to a team that needs it. Hopefully can become a good defender. Think he could be the best shooter of the draft class.
Cleanthony Early

  32. *Philadelphia | Cleanthony Early | 6-7 | 210 | SF/PF | Wichita State | 23

An athletic guy that can spell Durant and also play with him in small lineups. A glue guy that can score and hit an open jumper. Needs more consistency but could be ready with a good regular season to produce in the playoffs.
Mitch McGary

  33. *Cleveland | Mitch McGary | 6-10 | 266 | C | Michigan | 22

A 1st rounder in most other years, Philly gets a good young big. A bruiser to pair with or spell Noel.
Jordan Clarkson

  34. *New York | Jordan Clarkson | 6-4 | 186 | PG/SG | Missouri | 22

This could be a steal. Milwaukee needs a bunch of help and Clarkson should produce as a rookie.
Vasilje Micic

  35. *Memphis | Vasilje Micic | 6-6 | 202 | PG | Serbia | 20

Lots of picks and Micic may not last this long so good value. Help in a couple year.
Spencer Dinwiddie

  36. *Milwaukee | Spencer Dinwiddie | 6-6 | 205 | PG/SG | Colorado | 21

Some people have him as a late first round pick. Think he is a good player but coming off the injury he falls. Local guy gives the Nuggets guard help.
Jarnell Stokes

  37. *Toronto | Jarnell Stokes | 6-8 | 260 | PF | Tennessee | 20

Stokes sneaks into the 1st. Doesn't seem like an OKC pick but I think it makes sense. A guy that can get some post points. Could be a huge get for the Thunder.
Dwight Powell

  38. Detroit | Dwight Powell | 6-11 | 235 | PF | Stanford | 23

Dwight cracks the first round with his athleticism, shooting and shot blocking. Looks like he could be a late bloomer that keeps getting better. If the Big 3 stay together, Powell could be a nice piece for them keep contending.
Walter Tavares

  39. *Philadelphia | Walter Tavares | 7-3 | 260 | C | Spain | 22

Stash pick. Needs a couple more years but has potential as he hasn't been playing the game long. Solid instincts
Semaj Christon

  40. *Minnesota | Semaj Christon | 6-3 | 186 | PG | Xavier | 21

A guy that has 1st round talent. This could be falling for him but he goes to a good spot in SA where Patty Mills might be playing his way to a decent contract elsewhere.
PJ Hairston

  41. Denver | PJ Hairston | 6-5 | 228 | SG | USA | 21

Falls due to character concerns. Think he is more spark plug bench guy than starter but Minnesota could use the shot maker.
Nick Johnson

  42. *Houston | Nick Johnson | 6-3 | 198 | SG | Arizona | 21

Could replace Jeremy Lin. May not make it but a smart player that has improved every year. Could be a good rotation player one day.
Cameron Bairstow

  43. Atlanta | Cameron Bairstow | 6-10 | 252 | PF | New Mexico | 23

Could be a tough nosed bench guy that can knock down a mid range J. Could get some minutes as a rookie. Not spectacular but could stick around for many years.
DeAndre Daniels

  44. *Brooklyn | DeAndre Daniels | 6-8 | 195 | SF | UConn | 22

Minny takes a chance on a guy that could be a good 3 and D guy down the road. Didn't do much until the tournament. Falls a bit further than expected.
Johnny O'Bryant

  45. Charlotte | Johnny O'Bryant | 6-8 | 257 | PF/C | LSU | 21

Back up big for Nene and Gortat. I like him but he will have to work to get minutes.
Khem Birch

  46. *LA Lakers | Khem Birch | 6-9 | 209 | PF | UNLV | 21

Hopefully turns into a tough energy big off the bench. Good shot blocker and rebounder and most teams could use one.
Alessandro Gentile

  47. *New Orleans | Alessandro Gentile | 6-7 | 230 | SG/SF | Italy | 21

stash
Thanasis Antetokounmpo

  48. *Atlanta | Thanasis Antetokounmpo | 6-6 | 205 | SF | Greece | 22

Stash pick. Hope he develops into something.
Russ Smith

  49. Chicago | Russ Smith | 6-1 | 160 | PG/SG | Louisville | 23

Spark plug. May not get a ton of minutes but I think he works his way into a rotation one day.
Ondrej Balvin

  50. Phoenix | Ondrej Balvin | 7-2 | 280 | C | Czech Republic | 21

Stash
Patric Young

  51. *New York | Patric Young | 6-10 | 247 | PF/C | Florida | 22

Toughness. At least he will push guys in camp.
Will Sheehey

  52. *Philadelphia | Will Sheehey | 6-7 | 195 | SF | Indiana | 22

I like the shooting and athleticism. Could make the team with Allen getting older and Miller being gone.
Bryce Cotton

  53. *Minnesota | Bryce Cotton | 6-0 | 165 | PG | Providence | 22

Keith Appling

  54. *San Antonio | Keith Appling | 6-1 | 180 | PG/SG | Michigan St. | 22

Smart upperclassmen that could make the team and get some backup minutes.
Roy Devyn Marble

  55. *Charlotte | Roy Devyn Marble | 6-6 | 192 | SG | Iowa | 21

Dallas seems to have a very old team and Roy gives them shooting.
Josh Huestis

  56. *Orlando | Josh Huestis | 6-8 | 215 | SF/PF | Stanford | 22

DeAndre Kane

  57. Indiana | DeAndre Kane | 6-4 | 200 | PG/SG | Iowa St. | 25

Well if Stephenson is gone, Kane could be insurance. Not the talent but more steady.
Melvin Ejim

  58. *Philadelphia | Melvin Ejim | 6-6 | 220 | SF/PF | Iowa St. | 23

Good scorer and SA just finds fits for guys like this.
Andre Dawkins

  59. *Brooklyn | Andre Dawkins | 6-5 | 205 | SG | Duke | 22

Jordan Bachynski

  60. *Brooklyn | Jordan Bachynski | 7-2 | 248 | C | Arizona St. | 24

Could be a roster guy.
