Player | Ht | Wt | Pos | Team | Age

Markelle Fultz

  1. *Philadelphia | Markelle Fultz | 6-4 | 190 | PG | Washington | 19

Philly completes its Big 3. Like the pick for them. Fultz fits in well.
Lonzo Ball

  2. LA Lakers | Lonzo Ball | 6-6 | 190 | PG | UCLA | 19

DLo out must mean Ball in, right? IMO Ball is overrated a tad, but he seems like a destined Laker.
Jonathan Isaac

  3. *Boston | Jonathan Isaac | 6-10 | 210 | SF/PF | Florida St. | 19

Jackson is refusing to workout and Tatum's iso/ball-stopping nature doesn't fit here with the Celtics looking to sign a star. That leaves Isaac who fits the new era of ball to a tee. He seems like another left field pick from Ainge.
Josh Jackson

  4. Phoenix | Josh Jackson | 6-8 | 205 | SG/SF | Kansas | 20

IMO Jackson's 1B in the draft and he goes 4. Phoenix should be good in a few years.
De'Aaron Fox

  5. Sacramento | De'Aaron Fox | 6-3 | 170 | PG | Kentucky | 19

Kings love Fox and should get him here. He's a gamer.
Jayson Tatum

  6. Orlando | Jayson Tatum | 6-8 | 205 | SF | Duke | 19

Some believe Payton showed enough to warrant another year as lead guard. Here's Tatum for a much needed scoring punch.
Dennis Smith

  7. Chicago | Dennis Smith | 6-2 | 195 | PG | NC State | 19

A Derrick Rose type PG for Thibs (NOTE: not saying he's prime D-Rose, just that he's another hyper-athletic PG for Coach Thibs). He should make Rubio expendable. Smith has as much potential as anyone.
Frank Ntilikina

  8. New York | Frank Ntilikina | 6-5 | 190 | PG | France | 18

Rumors are that the Knicks love Frank, who has crazy length and should be a decent fit for the triangle?
Zach Collins

  9. Dallas | Zach Collins | 6-11 | 230 | C | Gonzaga | 19

I think Dallas goes Collins over Markkanen because of Collins' superior upside and versatility.
Malik Monk

  10. *Portland | Malik Monk | 6-3 | 200 | SG | Kentucky | 19

Not out of the question Sacramento gets both Kentucky guards. With Monk on the board still, Kings should go with him as BPA.
Justin Jackson

  11. Charlotte | Justin Jackson | 6-8 | 200 | SF | North Carolina | 22

IMO Jackson should be picked around the late teens-early twenties, but this is MJ we're talking about. His aversion to drafting young players combined with the Tarheel connection make Jackson the pick.
Luke Kennard

  12. Detroit | Luke Kennard | 6-6 | 195 | SG | Duke | 21

The Pistons desperately need shooting, and Kennard fills that. He also has the ball skills to run the point in a pinch. This pick may be traded.
OG Anunoby

  13. *Utah | OG Anunoby | 6-7 | 235 | SF/PF | Indiana | 19

This site is sleeping on Anunoby who fits this era of basketball well. His defense, athleticism, and positional versatility make him an attractive pick for the Nuggets who desperately need defensive help.
Lauri Markkanen

  14. Miami | Lauri Markkanen | 7-0 | 230 | PF | Arizona | 20

Markkanen can shoot. Can he defend and rebound? Meh. If any system can hide his flaws, it's Miami who need help at the 4.
John Collins

  15. Sacramento | John Collins | 6-9 | 225 | PF/C | Wake Forest | 19

Collins is very athletic and young with a seemingly high floor. His defense is a huge question mark but the Trail Blazers need help down low.
Jarrett Allen

  16. *Minnesota | Jarrett Allen | 6-10 | 235 | C | Texas | 19

The rebuilding Bulls should go for upside, and Allen fits the bill. He also should provide a replacement (and hopeful upgrade) for Lopez at some point
Donovan Mitchell

  17. Milwaukee | Donovan Mitchell | 6-2 | 210 | SG | Louisville | 20

Mitchell is moving up a lot of draft boards right now, so seeing him at 17 may be a stretch. Mitchell is a guy who can catch fire and dominate on both ends. Consistency is an issue, but he has potential. The Bucks could use more firepower in their backcourt.
Bam Adebayo

  18. Indiana | Bam Adebayo | 6-10 | 245 | PF/C | Kentucky | 19

Bam provides depth down low for the Pacers. At the very least, Adebayo should serve as an energy big. However recent videos show he may have more skill than we thought.
Kyle Kuzma

  19. Atlanta | Kyle Kuzma | 6-9 | 225 | PF | Utah | 21

I don't necessarily think Kuzma should go this high, I just think the Hawks find a way to pick him as he's a great fit for their team.
Justin Patton

  20. *Sacramento | Justin Patton | 6-11 | 230 | C | Creighton | 20

Patton serves as insurance for the Blazers in case Nurkic leaves. He has developmental upside as their backup center if Nurkic stays.
TJ Leaf

  21. Oklahoma Cty | TJ Leaf | 6-10 | 225 | PF | UCLA | 20

The Thunder could use more shooting and a stretch-4. Here's both.
Harry Giles

  22. *Brooklyn | Harry Giles | 6-10 | 230 | PF/C | Duke | 19

The Nets, who lost Lopez, could use help down low and should swing for the fences for upside with their pick. I mean what do they have to lose?
Terrance Ferguson

  23. *Toronto | Terrance Ferguson | 6-7 | 185 | SG | USA | 19

Here's an upside pick for the Raptors who look like may in fact lose Lowry in the off-season. Toronto should look at Evans both Jackson too.
DJ Wilson

  24. *Denver | DJ Wilson | 6-10 | 235 | PF | Michigan | 21

Supposedly Utah promised Wilson, who is a versatile four with plenty of tools and a decent upside at both ends. He should push Lyles for minutes.
Ike Anigbogu

  25. *Philadelphia | Ike Anigbogu | 6-10 | 250 | C | UCLA | 18

New GM Hammond loves length and upside. Anigbogu has both, and could serve as the team's starting center in a few years with development and trades.
Anzejs Pasecniks

  26. *Portland | Anzejs Pasecniks | 7-1 | 220 | C | Latvia | 21

His workout video looks legit, and Portland should invest in a foreign talent with one of its three first rounders.
Semi Ojeleye

  27. *LA Lakers | Semi Ojeleye | 6-6 | 240 | SF/PF | SMU | 22

Walton may see some Draymond in Ojeleye, who has tools to become a multipostional defender and floor spacer.
Frank Jackson

  28. *Utah | Frank Jackson | 6-3 | 200 | PG/SG | Duke | 19

Walton loves using two guards who can handle the rock and score, and Jackson could serve as a replacement for Clarkson in case he's dealt.
Isaiah Hartenstein

  29. San Antonio | Isaiah Hartenstein | 7-0 | 250 | PF | Germany | 19

He's foreign. He's a big. He can shoot. #Spurs
Jawun Evans

  30. *LA Lakers | Jawun Evans | 6-0 | 185 | PG | Oklahoma State | 20

The Jazz may lose Hayward, and if they lose Hayward they'll probably lose Hill as well. Here's a PG for the Jazz in case.
Derrick White

  31. *New Orleans | Derrick White | 6-4 | 190 | PG/SG | Colorado | 22

White could play backup to Walker and play the 2 as well. I think he'll be a good pro.
Jordan Bell

  32. Phoenix | Jordan Bell | 6-8 | 225 | PF/C | Oregon | 22

Here's a shot blocker/energy big to replace Chandler when he inevitably leaves.
Cam Oliver

  33. *Orlando | Cam Oliver | 6-8 | 240 | PF | Nevada | 20

Hammond loves athletic players with long wingspans. Oliver also has stretch 4 potential... he could be a steal.
Tyler Lydon

  34. *Sacramento | Tyler Lydon | 6-9 | 215 | PF | Syracuse | 21

Lydon has stretch 4 potential, and should be an adequate off-the-bench big to play behind Skal at the 4.
Josh Hart

  35. *Memphis | Josh Hart | 6-5 | 210 | SG | Villanova | 22

Hart is this year's Brogdon, who was selected by new GM Hammond.
Johnathan Motley

  36. *Philadelphia | Johnathan Motley | 6-9 | 240 | PF | Baylor | 22

Motley should discover a role as an energy big who can rebound well. He fits the range, and could serve as depth for the '6ers.
Jonah Bolden

  37. *Boston | Jonah Bolden | 6-10 | 235 | PF | Australia | 21

Bolden has the skill Stevens looks for in bigs and has potential to be a solid two-way player. He also could be a steal.
Caleb Swanigan

  38. *Golden St. | Caleb Swanigan | 6-9 | 250 | PF/C | Purdue | 20

Swanigan should serve as a quality scoring big with a lot of rebounding ability. His atrocious defense and lack of athleticism limit his upside, however he should be a decent backup 4/5 in the league.
PJ Dozier

  39. *LA Clippers | PJ Dozier | 6-6 | 200 | PG/SG | South Carolina | 20

Dozier may not be a PG at the next level, but he won't need to be with Philly. He has potential as a multipositional defender who can be used as a secondary playmaker on the court.
Damyean Dotson

  40. Charlotte | Damyean Dotson | 6-6 | 205 | SG/SF | Houston | 23

The Hornets need help with floor spacing to ensure the AD/Cousins combo works. They also need help at basically any non-big position. Dotson fills both needs.
Tony Bradley

  41. *Atlanta | Tony Bradley | 6-10 | 250 | C | North Carolina | 19

The Hawks traded away Dwight. Here's a developmental replacement project for the rebuilding Hawks.
Wesley Iwundu

  42. *LA Lakers | Wesley Iwundu | 6-7 | 195 | SG/SF | Kansas State | 22

Iwundu could serve as a replacement to Ingles - as a secondary playmaker, floor spacer, and defender.
Ivan Rabb

  43. *Houston | Ivan Rabb | 6-10 | 220 | PF/C | California | 20

Houston could go BPA here and take the free-falling Rabb. Rabb should at least be a quality backup, despite a lack of a high ceiling.
Dwayne Bacon

  44. *New York | Dwayne Bacon | 6-6 | 220 | SG/SF | Florida St. | 21

Here's a scorer who seems to fit the New York mentality.
Frank Mason

  45. *Houston | Frank Mason | 6-0 | 190 | PG | Kansas | 23

The Rockets could maybe use depth at the point spot. Despite a lack of height and versatility, Mason has the skill level to be a quality backup point.
Sterling Brown

  46. *Milwaukee | Sterling Brown | 6-5 | 225 | SG/SF | SMU | 22

With Simmons around, Philly would be wise to invest in some floor spacers.
Tyler Dorsey

  47. Indiana | Tyler Dorsey | 6-4 | 185 | SG | Oregon | 21

The Pacers could use a scorer off the bench, and Dorsey fits the mold.
Davon Reed

  48. LA Clippers | Davon Reed | 6-6 | 205 | SG/SF | Miami | 22

Reed has 3-and-D potential and fits the profile the Bucks like (long and athletic). He especially fits a need if Snell walks.
Alec Peters

  49. *Denver | Alec Peters | 6-8 | 235 | PF | Valparaiso | 22

Another stretch 4 option for the Nuggets
Alpha Kaba

  50. *Philadelphia | Alpha Kaba | 6-10 | 235 | PF | France | 20

Philly could look to draft-and-stash a foreign player here.
Vlatko Cancar

  51. *Denver | Vlatko Cancar | 6-9 | 210 | SF/PF | Slovenia | 20

Another draft-and-stash option
Thomas Bryant

  52. *Indiana | Thomas Bryant | 6-11 | 250 | C | Indiana | 19

The Wizards should look to get younger inside. Bryant has excellent length and potential as a stretch 5, but character concerns and a lack of athleticism push him to the late second.
Sindarius Thornwell

  53. *Boston | Sindarius Thornwell | 6-5 | 210 | SG | South Carolina | 22

My favorite player in the draft, Thornwell should carve out a role as a gritty defensive player off the bench who can also shoot from the outside. Boston may lose Smart and/or Bradley, so a replacement may be needed.
Edmond Sumner

  54. *Phoenix | Edmond Sumner | 6-5 | 175 | PG/SG | Xavier | 21

Bledsoe may not be around for much longer, here's a potential replacement. Sumner has plenty of athleticism and upside, but a lack of an outside shot hurts him.
Kobi Simmons

  55. Utah | Kobi Simmons | 6-4 | 170 | PG/SG | Arizona | 19

Yes, the Jazz already took a PG, but Simmons has plenty of upside and can play the 1 and 2.
Mathias Lessort

  56. *Boston | Mathias Lessort | 6-9 | 235 | PF | France | 21

A draft-and-stash option
Devin Robinson

  57. *Brooklyn | Devin Robinson | 6-8 | 190 | SF/PF | Florida | 22

The Nets should continue the rebuild by taking the BPA - no matter of position. Robinson, although skinny, could potentially be a 3-and-D wing.
Jaron Blossomgame

  58. *New York | Jaron Blossomgame | 6-7 | 220 | SF | Clemson | 23

Last year, Blossomgame probably would've been a first round pick. He has potential as a 3-and-D wing, thanks to his athleticism/length and his shot that he showed as a junior. However, he is almost 24, he shot pretty poorly this last year, and is inconsistent defensively.
Dillon Brooks

  59. San Antonio | Dillon Brooks | 6-6 | 220 | SF | Oregon | 21

Brooks is a gamer and can shoot well. Seems like a Spurs pick to me.
Nigel Hayes

  60. *Atlanta | Nigel Hayes | 6-7 | 255 | PF | Wisconsin | 22

The Hawks will lose Millsap in free agency. Hayes has been compared to Millsap by some (and although that's generous), he has potential still. As a Badger fan who has watched him through all four years, I can tell you that he has upside as a multipositional defender and as an intriguing small-ball 4 offensive option. His inconsistency over the last few years as the #1 option tells me it's unlikely that he'll ever reach that ceiling, though.
