Player | Ht | Wt | Pos | Team | Age

Andrew Wiggins

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

The highest touted prep player since LeBron. The Cavs draft the 2nd Canadian ever selected #1 overall one year after taking the first, Anthony Bennett. Wiggins and Kyrie form Cleveland's duo of the future. *Vince Carter/Rudy Gay
Jabari Parker

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

Parker says the Bucks have given him a promise if he doesn't go #1. He's the go-to scorer/franchise player this team desperately needs. The Greek Freak would pick up Jabari's defensive slack. *Carmelo Anthony
Dante Exum

  3. *Philadelphia | Dante Exum | 6-6 | 196 | PG/SG | Australia | 19

Exum is very much an unknown quantity, 2014's "international man of mystery". Tall and versatile. The Sixers could pair him with MCW for a long athletic backcourt. *Penny Hardaway
Noah Vonleh

  4. Orlando | Noah Vonleh | 6-9 | 247 | PF | Indiana | 19

Vonleh's got a good motor and bangs on the glass, very physical on both sides of the floor. Surprisingly strong, he can hold his own against players much bigger than him. The Magic are rumored to be zeroing in on Vonleh to join Vucevic in the frontcourt. *Chris Bosh
Aaron Gordon

  5. Utah | Aaron Gordon | 6-9 | 220 | PF | Arizona | 19

Gordon's a freak athlete with a lot of potential, but very raw. My Jazz get a defensive stopper who'd stretch the defense and allow Favors to play the 5 more. Kanter becomes the 6th man. *Kenneth Faried/Shawn Marion
Joel Embiid

  6. *Boston | Joel Embiid | 7-0 | 250 | C | Kansas | 20

He'll be out 5-6 months with an injury so I believe his stock will drop out of the top 3. I don't see him falling past the Celtics, who need a C of the future to pair with Sully. *Hakeem Olajuwon/Andrew Bynum
Julius Randle

  7. LA Lakers | Julius Randle | 6-9 | 250 | PF | Kentucky | 20

Randle is huge for his age, the baby Zach Randolph comparison gets tossed around. He impressed in his workout with the Lakers, who aren't concerned about his impending foot surgery. They like him to replace Pau Gasol as their PF of the future. *Zach Randolph
Marcus Smart

  8. Sacramento | Marcus Smart | 6-3 | 227 | PG | Oklahoma State | 20

Refused to work out for my Jazz, that and his punching incident from the regular season gives him a punk vibe, falls out of the top 7. Becomes Sactown's new franchise PG. *Baron Davis
Doug McDermott

  9. *Charlotte | Doug McDermott | 6-7 | 220 | SF | Creighton | 22

McDermott has good size for his position, can shoot the lights out, and has improving ballhandling skills. An excellent leader and a coach's son. Charlotte gets a go-to scorer to pair with Kemba Walker & Big Al. *Wally Szczerbiak
Nik Stauskas

  10. *Orlando | Nik Stauskas | 6-6 | 207 | SG | Michigan | 21

The Hornets are targeting Dougie McBuckets or Stauskas at #9. Philly will reportedly take whoever Charlotte does not. Stauskas would replace Evan Turner as Philly's scoring punch off the bench. *Kevin Martin
Dario Saric

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

Just signed a new contract that'll keep him in Europe for the next 2 seasons, but he'll be in New York on Thursday, indicating that he has a 1st round/lottery promise, reportedly from the Nuggets. *Hedo Turkoglu
Elfrid Payton

  12. *Philadelphia | Elfrid Payton | 6-4 | 185 | PG | Louisiana Lafayette | 20

This kid is one of my 2014 NBA Draft sleepers; he's a dark horse lottery pick a la Damian Lillard. The Magic will probably let free agent Jameer Nelson leave this summer. Payton becomes their new franchise PG. *poor man's Rajon Rondo
Gary Harris

  13. *Minnesota | Gary Harris | 6-4 | 205 | SG | Michigan St. | 20

Harris' scoring ability and athleticism fit the Wolves' lineup perfectly. *Gerald Henderson
Kyle Anderson

  14. *Phoenix | Kyle Anderson | 6-9 | 230 | SF | UCLA | 21

Has SF size but PG-like ball handling skills. Struggles to create his own shot. One of the best rebounders in college basketball. He'd become a solid contributor on the new-look Suns. *Jalen Rose
Rodney Hood

  15. *Atlanta | Rodney Hood | 6-8 | 208 | SF | Duke | 22

Mississippi State transfer who's an athletic, lanky forward who can put the ball on the floor. A slasher who's not afraid to take a turnaround shot. Atlanta needs a 3 who can score. DeMarre Carroll is a defensive scrapper. *Michael Finley
James Young

  16. *Denver | James Young | 6-6 | 215 | SG | Kentucky | 19

Athletic with a good feel for scoring. The Bulls need some more scorers to take some of the pressure off of D Rose. *Arron Afflalo
Zach LaVine

  17. *Boston | Zach LaVine | 6-6 | 180 | PG/SG | UCLA | 19

LaVine could end up being one of the steals in the draft. Very raw but some of the highest potential among the younger players. The Celtics swing for the fences. Possible replacement for Rondo if he's traded? *Russell Westbrook (best)/Josh Selby (worst)
Jusuf Nurkic

  18. *Phoenix | Jusuf Nurkic | 6-11 | 280 | C | Bosnia & Herzegovina | 20

A huge but raw European big man. The Suns need help everywhere. They celebrate (almost) making the playoffs by taking a gamble on Nurkic. *Zaza Pachulia
Shabazz Napier

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

His stock rose to the first round after leading UConn to its second National Championship in his college career. D Rose just isn't the same after his 2nd ACL surgery. Thibs brings Napier in for a legit young protege. His championship pedigree fits this team currently chasing an NBA Title. *Mark Jackson
Tyler Ennis

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

With Kyle Lowry a free agent, Masai Ujiri reportedly might target the Canadian Ennis as his PG of the future. Good PR move by Ujiri going with the Canadian kid. *Mike Conley, Jr.
Adreian Payne

  21. *Oklahoma Cty | Adreian Payne | 6-10 | 240 | PF | Michigan St. | 23

An athletic 4 with a good shooting touch and passing ability. The Thunder get a great value here. Payne is a more offensively inclined big man, change of pace from Ibaka. KD & Russ need scoring help. *Rasheed Wallace
TJ Warren

  22. Memphis | TJ Warren | 6-8 | 220 | SF | NC State | 21

A proficient scorer who's got a lot of potential, could be a steal down the line. Bench scoring is the Grizzlies' biggest weakness. Warren becomes their new offensive specialist. *Michael Beasley (now)/Caron Butler (eventually)
Cleanthony Early

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

Cleanthony Early is one of the most athletic players in the draft, a slashing jack of all trades type who makes his teammates better. He gives my Jazz a valuable 6th man and possible replacement for Hayward. *Alonzo Gee
KJ McDaniels

  24. *Miami | KJ McDaniels | 6-6 | 196 | SF | Clemson | 21

An athlete with good court vision and improving offensive abilities. Charlotte adds a defensive presence after grabbing a scorer at 9. *Gerald Green
Clint Capela

  25. Houston | Clint Capela | 6-11 | 222 | PF/C | Switzerland | 20

Houston stashes this long, lanky forward for depth later on. They plan to make a run at LeBron and Melo. *Amir Johnson
Mitch McGary

  26. Charlotte | Mitch McGary | 6-10 | 266 | C | Michigan | 22

A bruiser who missed most of last season with an injury, then declared for this draft after being suspended for failing a drug test. This is a transitionary phase for the Heat. I could see McGary replacing Birdman for Miami. *Tyler Hansbrough
Jordan Adams

  27. *Phoenix | Jordan Adams | 6-5 | 209 | SG | UCLA | 20

A good physical specimen. Has a nice perimeter game. Moves well off the ball, quick hands. The Suns get another nice young 2 guard to develop into a contributor. *Nick Young
Walter Tavares

  28. LA Clippers | Walter Tavares | 7-3 | 260 | C | Spain | 22

An absolute giant, a monster under the glass. The Clips could use a legit big man to backup DeAndre Jordan, but they're so deep and talented that they can afford to wait on Tavares. *Peter John Ramos
Bogdan Bogdanovic

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

A typical European slasher/shooter. Typical Thunder draft-and-stash or could come over right away and replace free agent Thabo Sefolosha. *a poor man's Marco Belinelli
Jarnell Stokes

  30. San Antonio | Jarnell Stokes | 6-8 | 260 | PF | Tennessee | 20

A monster on the glass who's a little overweight. I think he could've used one more year but his stock seems to be doing alright. 38 year-old Tim Duncan just won his 5th NBA Championship and plans to return next season. The Spurs draft Stokes for a potential replacement. *Zach Randolph/Michael Sweetney
CJ Wilcox

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

Wilcox is an athletic scorer who also excels in catch-and-shoot situations. The Bucks get another scorer to take more of the pressure off of the Greek Freak and Jabari. *Anthony Morrow
Jerami Grant

  32. *Philadelphia | Jerami Grant | 6-8 | 214 | SF | Syracuse | 20

Has the size, length and frame to guard multiple positions at the college level. Capable of playing stretch 4 behind Thad Young. *Al-Farouq Aminu
Jordan Clarkson

  33. *Cleveland | Jordan Clarkson | 6-4 | 186 | PG/SG | Missouri | 22

A transfer from Tulsa who's capable of playing either guard position. The Cavs get a longterm backup/replacement for Kyrie. *Rodney Stuckey
PJ Hairston

  34. *New York | PJ Hairston | 6-5 | 228 | SG | USA | 21

Maintained his stock in the D League after being kicked off of UNC in December. Has great potential as a team's offensive specialist. The Knicks are targeting Hairston at 34 after getting this pick in the Tyson Chandler trade. *Jordan Crawford
Vasilje Micic

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

Micic is a true PG with terrific ballhandling skills, ability to change speeds and good footwork. My Jazz were pleased with Diante Garrett backing up Trey Burke last season, but they draft-and-stash Micic anyway in case Garrett's season was a fluke. *Jose Calderon
Thanasis Antetokounmpo

  36. *Milwaukee | Thanasis Antetokounmpo | 6-6 | 205 | SF | Greece | 22

Thanasis is the older brother of Bucks swingman Giannis Antetokounmpo. Great PR move by Milwaukee to add more athleticism and scoring ability to the team. *Bruce Bowen
Glenn Robinson III

  37. *Toronto | Glenn Robinson III | 6-7 | 211 | SF | Michigan | 20

A solid scorer who didn't improve much in his second season in Ann Arbor. He's still a work in progress. Terrence Ross will be a free agent next season. GR3 is a potential replacement. The son of 1994 #1 overall pick Glenn "Big Dog" Robinson *Trevor Ariza
DeAndre Daniels

  38. Detroit | DeAndre Daniels | 6-8 | 195 | SF | UConn | 22

Daniels emerged as a legit NBA prospect in this Tournament. Word is that Stan Van wants the Pistons to draft a SF who'd possibly take Josh Smith's starting spot. Smith is the subject of a trade rumor to the Kings. *Cliff Robinson/Boris Diaw
Damien Inglis

  39. *Philadelphia | Damien Inglis | 6-9 | 240 | SF/PF | France | 19

An intriguing player. Great physical specimen who could play some point forward. Draft and stash for Philly, could be a contributor later on. *Ryan Gomes
Spencer Dinwiddie

  40. *Minnesota | Spencer Dinwiddie | 6-6 | 205 | PG/SG | Colorado | 21

Another guy who I think made a mistake coming out this season. Could challenge Rubio as part of a rebuild if/when K Love is traded. *Aaron McKie
Semaj Christon

  41. Denver | Semaj Christon | 6-3 | 186 | PG | Xavier | 22

A slashing PG who likes to drive to the basket but can't make a free throw worth a damn. Needs to work on all aspects of his game. Lots of untapped potential, a former projected top 10 pick. Not gonna replace Ty Lawson, but back him up. *John Wall (best)/Ramon Sessions (worst)
CJ Fair

  42. *Houston | CJ Fair | 6-8 | 218 | SF | Syracuse | 23

A work in progress on most facets of his game. One of my 2nd round sleepers. The Rockets get some wing depth. *a smaller Brandon Bass
Markel Brown

  43. Atlanta | Markel Brown | 6-4 | 185 | SG | Oklahoma State | 22

An athletic 2 guard with a solid feel for the game. The Hawks get a steal here, the go-to scoring SG they've missed since trading Joe Johnson. *Khalid Reeves
Nick Johnson

  44. *Brooklyn | Nick Johnson | 6-3 | 198 | SG | Arizona | 21

A scoring combo guard who's got some tantalizing potential. The Wolves get a value pick. The nephew of the late NBA veteran Dennis Johnson. *Avery Bradley
Cory Jefferson

  45. Charlotte | Cory Jefferson | 6-9 | 220 | PF | Baylor | 23

One of my favorite players in the draft. This is one kid who I just want to see get drafted. Charlotte gets some good frontcourt depth behind Zeller & Big Al. *Rodney Rogers
Deonte Burton

  46. *LA Lakers | Deonte Burton | 6-1 | 193 | PG/SG | Nevada | 23

Arguably the most athletic PG in the draft, excels in multiple areas. A very good frame for the position. Washington develops Burton as John Wall's longterm backup while Andre Miller finishes his career. *Troy Bell
Ondrej Balvin

  47. *New Orleans | Ondrej Balvin | 7-2 | 280 | C | Czech Republic | 22

A space eater. Massive with a 7'2" 260 lb. frame. This is the point in the draft where I think the Sixers will make a lot of draft-and-stashes. *Zydrunas Ilgauskas
Ojars Silins

  48. *Atlanta | Ojars Silins | 6-9 | 210 | SF | Latvia | 21

Does a little bit of everything, an athletic wing with a good shooting stroke. Needs to get more aggressive and tends to disappear in big games. The Bucks select a draft-and-stash.
Cameron Bairstow

  49. Chicago | Cameron Bairstow | 6-10 | 252 | PF | New Mexico | 24

A good jump shooter with great size for his position. Moves well without the ball. Plays soft defense so he'll need to work on that at the next level. Carlos Boozer and Nazr Mohammed probably won't be back next season. Bairstow gives the Bulls frontcourt depth behind Noah & Gibson.
Nikola Jokic

  50. Phoenix | Nikola Jokic | 6-11 | 255 | PF/C | Serbia | 19

Disappointed in the Hoop Summit but looked like a lottery pick in practices. Draft-and-stash frontcourt depth to bring over in a few years.
Patric Young

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

A great athlete but still pretty raw even at 22 years old. The Knicks make out like bandits with their 2 second rounders, grabbing their top 2 prospect targets. Develop Young to replace Amar'e. *Jason Maxiell
Jabari Brown

  52. *Philadelphia | Jabari Brown | 6-4 | 215 | SG | Missouri | 21

Oregon transfer who is most productive in catch-and-shoot situations. A strong defensive player with good agility. Moves well off the ball. Another scoring SG, look for the Sixers to trade this kid if their draft goes exactly like I have it going. *Bobby Phills
Johnny O'Bryant

  53. *Minnesota | Johnny O'Bryant | 6-8 | 257 | PF/C | LSU | 21

A great rebounder with the potential to be a solid interior scorer in the future. K Love is the hottest name on the trade market currently. Minnesota should spend a pick or two replacing Love's depth or Love himself (Payne @ #13?) for if/when he's dealt. *Andray Blatche
Alessandro Gentile

  54. *San Antonio | Alessandro Gentile | 6-7 | 230 | SG/SF | Italy | 22

A physical slasher, he's been called the "Italian Melo". You can't expect the Sixers to spend all of their 2nd round picks on college players who'd join the team immediately. Draft and stash this guy overseas for a few years. *Bonzi Wells
Joe Harris

  55. *Charlotte | Joe Harris | 6-6 | 215 | SG/SF | Virginia | 23

Moves well off the ball and thrives in catch-and-shoot situations. Doesn't look like much of an NBA player but some team could take a flyer on him in the mid-late 2nd round. The Heat draft a young scorer behind D Wade.
Ronald Roberts

  56. *Orlando | Ronald Roberts | 6-8 | 215 | PF | St. Joseph's | 23

One of the best athletes in the draft with a rudimentary back-to-the-basket game. He'll definitely spend some time in the D League before carving out an NBA niche.
Russ Smith

  57. Indiana | Russ Smith | 6-1 | 160 | PG/SG | Louisville | 23

You know I had to squeeze him in here somewhere. Russ Smith doesn't project as a great NBA player, but he's definitely got the talent and drive to carve out a niche. He'd fit in to the Pacers' championship culture. Russ would contribute playing behind George Hill. *Patrick Beverley
Ioannis Papapetrou

  58. *Philadelphia | Ioannis Papapetrou | 6-9 | 233 | SF | Greece | 20

Here's one of a few random international players we'll be scratching our heads over if he actually gets drafted.
Sim Bhullar

  59. *Brooklyn | Sim Bhullar | 7-5 | 360 | C | New Mexico St. | 22

The first predominantly Indian player to be drafted by an NBA team. Maybe some team will take him with a late 2nd rounder so he can achieve that milestone. *Slavko Vranes
Nemanja Dangubic

  60. *Brooklyn | Nemanja Dangubic | 6-8 | 195 | SG | Serbia | 21

The Spurs get another international draft-and-stash to come over in a few years.
