Player | Ht | Wt | Pos | Team | Age

DeAndre Ayton

  1. Phoenix | DeAndre Ayton | 7-0 | 260 | C | Arizona | 19

Ayton has the physical gifts to be a superstar in the league, and the Suns shouldn't pass on that.
Marvin Bagley

  2. Sacramento | Marvin Bagley | 6-11 | 235 | PF | Duke | 19

I could see the Kings going Bagley, Jackson or Doncic here. Reports are that Doncic is falling a little bit. That leaves Bagley and Jackson. I think they go Bagley here, who has one of the higher floors in the class. His defense must improve for the next level.
Luka Doncic

  3. Dallas | Luka Doncic | 6-8 | 225 | SG/SF | Slovenia | 19

Rumor is that the Hawks are leaning towards Doncic... He is arguably the safest player in the draft, and could make their unhappy point guard expendable.
Jaren Jackson Jr.

  4. Memphis | Jaren Jackson Jr. | 6-11 | 235 | PF/C | Michigan St. | 18

Bamba doesn't want to play in Memphis, so I could see them taking Jackson Jr. or trading down. Jackson Jr. could play alongside Gasol and has legit two-way upside.
Mohamed Bamba

  5. Atlanta | Mohamed Bamba | 7-0 | 225 | C | Texas | 20

This pick depends on whether or not the Mavs will make a run at Cousins in the offseason. If so, they would probably go a different route. Bamba has defensive POY upside, better-than-advertised offense, and is a very smart kid.
Michael Porter

  6. Orlando | Michael Porter | 6-11 | 210 | SF | Missouri | 19

Most people would think Young in this scenario, however this is John Hammond we're talking about--a GM who loves to swing for the fences. Aaron Gordon more than likely won't be with the Magic going forward. MPJ and Issac provide two intriguing forward options going forward for the Magic. Would also not be surprised if they select Young. Porter Jr. reportedly is moving down the board, but it could just be a smoke screen.
Wendell Carter

  7. Chicago | Wendell Carter | 6-10 | 250 | C | Duke | 19

Carter looks the part of a solid pro. Carter and Lauri compliment each other very well.
Mikal Bridges

  8. *Cleveland | Mikal Bridges | 6-7 | 210 | SG/SF | Villanova | 21

The Cavs take Bridges in hopes this convinces LeBron to stay. Bridges looks the part of a 3-and-D wing, who would help the Cavs against the Warriors and Rockets. The LeBron/IT experiment scares them away from taking Trae Young, IMO.
Trae Young

  9. New York | Trae Young | 6-2 | 180 | PG | Oklahoma | 19

The Knicks need a PG (Frank is more of a 2-guard). Young brings excitement to New York. I think he is tad overrated (he's not Curry) but he could become an electric scorer at the next level. How he adapts to the pro game and his defense will make or break his career.
Zhaire Smith

  10. *Phoenix | Zhaire Smith | 6-4 | 200 | SG | Texas Tech | 19

Reportedly, the '6ers covet Smith, who fills a need at the two-spot. This is a tad high for me, but he has legit upside and can dig in defensively.
Collin Sexton

  11. *LA Clippers | Collin Sexton | 6-2 | 185 | PG | Alabama | 19

With the trade of Howard, the Hornets are looking nearer to the reset button finally. The Hornets could look at a PG to develop behind Walker, even if he's not traded. I think MJ would like the way Sexton plays.
Kevin Knox

  12. Charlotte | Kevin Knox | 6-9 | 215 | SF/PF | Kentucky | 18

With two back-to-back picks, the Clippers can feel free to take the BPA, who is one of the youngest players in the draft.
Shai Gilgeous-Alexander

  13. LA Clippers | Shai Gilgeous-Alexander | 6-6 | 180 | PG | Kentucky | 19

The Clips need a PG and SGA is the best available. He has nice two-way potential.
Miles Bridges

  14. Denver | Miles Bridges | 6-6 | 220 | SF/PF | Michigan St. | 20

While the Nuggets seemingly have an overabundance at the 3/4 positions, I wouldn't be shocked to see many of those guys gone next year. Besides, Bridges is the BPA.
Robert Williams

  15. Washington | Robert Williams | 6-9 | 240 | PF/C | Texas A&M | 20

The Wizards should look to get younger and more athletic in their front court. Williams looks the part of an athletic lob target who can protect the rim.
Lonnie Walker

  16. *Philadelphia | Lonnie Walker | 6-5 | 195 | SG | Miami | 19

The Suns should look to bolster their defense, and Walker also happens to be BPA here. He could play alongside Booker as well.
Donte DiVincenzo

  17. Milwaukee | Donte DiVincenzo | 6-5 | 200 | SG | Villanova | 21

The Bucks should look to revamp the bench unit that was 4th worst in the NBA in terms of point production. I love DiVincenzo, and believe the trio of Brogdon/Delly/DiVincenzo would look great coming off the bench for Milwaukee at the guard spots. DiVincenzo could also play alongside Giannis, adding to his value.
Kevin Huerter

  18. San Antonio | Kevin Huerter | 6-7 | 195 | SG | Maryland | 19

Huerter can shoot the rock and is "deceptively athletic". Apparently the Spurs like him.
Mitchell Robinson

  19. *Atlanta | Mitchell Robinson | 7-1 | 225 | C | USA | 20

I could see Robinson going higher than this, or much lower. He is very hard to project, but he's apparently getting looks around this range. The Hawks need a 5 for the future.
Khyri Thomas

  20. *Minnesota | Khyri Thomas | 6-4 | 200 | SG | Creighton | 22

Thomas seems like a Thibs guy to me. He can defend and shoot, which the Wolves need.
Josh Okogie

  21. Utah | Josh Okogie | 6-4 | 210 | SG/SF | Georgia Tech | 19

Wouldn't shock me if Okogie went earlier than this, or much lower. He's hard to project, but I really like him as a prospect. The Jazz hit a homerun last year with a similar-ish player (in terms of rawness, length and athleticism).
Chandler Hutchison

  22. *Chicago | Chandler Hutchison | 6-7 | 195 | SG/SF | Boise State | 22

Hutchison has potential as a point forward type. The Bulls, apparently, have made him a promise.
Jerome Robinson

  23. Indiana | Jerome Robinson | 6-5 | 190 | SG | Boston College | 21

Some have Robinson before this, but I can't seem to find a good spot to put him. I could see the Pacers taking him, seeing as though they don't draft point guards and that he could play alongside 'Dipo.
Troy Brown

  24. Portland | Troy Brown | 6-7 | 210 | SG | Oregon | 18

Brown can initiate offense when McCollum (if he isn't traded) and Lillard are on the bench and he can also defend-- something the Blazers need.
Aaron Holiday

  25. *LA Lakers | Aaron Holiday | 6-1 | 185 | PG | UCLA | 21

Why not? The Lakers need a backup point.
Dzanan Musa

  26. Philadelphia | Dzanan Musa | 6-9 | 195 | SF | Bosnia & Herzegovina | 19

With a few picks, the '6ers could take a stash prospect. Musa will provide the '6ers floor spacing (which is a must next to Simmons and Embiid) once he comes over. Reportedly, he may come over right away, though.
Jacob Evans

  27. Boston | Jacob Evans | 6-5 | 200 | SG/SF | Cincinnati | 21

Here's a possible replacement for Smart.
Melvin Frazier

  28. Golden St. | Melvin Frazier | 6-6 | 200 | SG/SF | Tulane | 21

Frazier provides Golden State with a lengthy, switchy 3-and-D forward. He'll be a good pro. Reportedly, he had a good workout with them.
Keita Bates-Diop

  29. *Brooklyn | Keita Bates-Diop | 6-8 | 225 | SF/PF | Ohio State | 22

The Nets want and need a new-age stretch 4.
Elie Okobo

  30. *Atlanta | Elie Okobo | 6-2 | 180 | PG | France | 20

With a few first round picks, the Hawks can take a foreign player at some point. Okobo has length and potential as a combo guard. He and Doncic could play together, too.
Anfernee Simons

  31. Phoenix | Anfernee Simons | 6-3 | 185 | PG/SG | Undecided | 19

The Suns need a PG--that much is clear. Do they Brunson? At this juncture of the draft, I could see the Suns swinging for the fences with Simons.
Jalen Brunson

  32. *Memphis | Jalen Brunson | 6-2 | 200 | PG | Villanova | 21

Seems like a win-now pick for a team that doesn't believe in rebuilding. Brunson should be a solid pro.
Bruce Brown

  33. Dallas | Bruce Brown | 6-5 | 195 | SG | Miami | 21

A possible 3-and-D guy to eventually replace Mathews.
Omari Spellman

  34. Atlanta | Omari Spellman | 6-9 | 255 | PF/C | Villanova | 20

The Hawks need to invest more down low, and Spellman could be a stretch-5 at the next level.
De'Anthony Melton

  35. *Orlando | De'Anthony Melton | 6-3 | 195 | PG/SG | USC | 20

Melton's unknown status drops him to the second round and the guard-needy Magic swoop in with no second thoughts.
Grayson Allen

  36. *New York | Grayson Allen | 6-4 | 200 | SG | Duke | 22

I don't see the first round hype with Allen, but wouldn't it be fun to see him in New York?
Landry Shamet

  37. *Portland | Landry Shamet | 6-5 | 190 | PG/SG | Wichita State | 21

The Kings should look at guard depth, and Shamet can shoot and play both the 1 and 2.
Shake Milton

  38. *Philadelphia | Shake Milton | 6-6 | 205 | PG/SG | SMU | 21

Milton has potential as a 3-and-D guard, who could function as an off-ball 1.
Rawle Alkins

  39. *LA Lakers | Rawle Alkins | 6-4 | 220 | SG | Arizona | 20

Atkins could be a 3-and-D guard, something the Lakers need.
Gary Trent Jr.

  40. *Denver | Gary Trent Jr. | 6-5 | 205 | SG | Duke | 19

Trent provides shooting for the Nets, who may lose Harris.
Trevon Duval

  41. *Denver | Trevon Duval | 6-3 | 190 | PG | Duke | 19

If the Magic don't take Young in the first, I could see them taking two guards in the second, given how desperate they are.
Keenan Evans

  42. Detroit | Keenan Evans | 6-3 | 185 | PG/SG | Texas Tech | 21

Evans looks the part of a gritty backup guard.
Hamidou Diallo

  43. *Brooklyn | Hamidou Diallo | 6-5 | 195 | SG | Kentucky | 19

The Nuggets should continue to look for guys that can play defense. Diallo has upside, but is very raw.
Moritz Wagner

  44. Washington | Moritz Wagner | 6-11 | 240 | PF/C | Michigan | 21

The Wizards should look for a stretch big. I could see Wagner go earlier than this.
Brandon McCoy

  45. *Charlotte | Brandon McCoy | 7-1 | 250 | C | UNLV | 20

The Nets should look for depth at center.
Jevon Carter

  46. *Houston | Jevon Carter | 6-1 | 195 | PG | West Virginia | 22

Carter provides depth at the point and gives the Rockets a Beverley-type point. I like Carter at the next level.
Jarred Vanderbilt

  47. *LA Lakers | Jarred Vanderbilt | 6-9 | 215 | SF | Kentucky | 19

I think Walton takes Vanderbilt here in the hopes he can turn him into a small-ball 5.
Chimezie Metu

  48. Minnesota | Chimezie Metu | 6-10 | 220 | PF/C | USC | 21

The Wolves should look for depth down low.
Isaac Bonga

  49. San Antonio | Isaac Bonga | 6-9 | 200 | SF | Germany | 18

Bonga seems like a Spur, right?
Kevin Hervey

  50. Indiana | Kevin Hervey | 6-8 | 215 | SF/PF | Texas Arlington | 21

A potential switchy, stretch-4.
Tony Carr

  51. New Orleans | Tony Carr | 6-4 | 200 | PG | Penn State | 20

I'm not a huge fan of Carr, but he provides floor spacing for New Orleans, which is needed.
Justin Jackson MD

  52. Utah | Justin Jackson MD | 6-7 | 230 | SF/PF | Maryland | 21

The Jazz should look for a new-age 4.
Devonte Graham

  53. Oklahoma Cty | Devonte Graham | 6-1 | 185 | PG | Kansas | 23

The Thunder need to find a backup to Westbrook eventually, right?
Kenrich Williams

  54. *Dallas | Kenrich Williams | 6-7 | 200 | SF | TCU | 23

Reportedly, Williams is getting some late-second round looks.
Vanja Marinkovic

  55. *Charlotte | Vanja Marinkovic | 6-7 | 195 | SG/SF | Serbia | 21

There will be a few foreign guys picked sometime in the second.
Rodions Kurucs

  56. Philadelphia | Rodions Kurucs | 6-9 | 220 | SF | Latvia | 20

There will be a few foreign guys picked sometime in the second.
Devon Hall

  57. *Oklahoma Cty | Devon Hall | 6-5 | 205 | PG/SG | Virginia | 22

The Thunder need more two-way players.
Alize Johnson

  58. *Denver | Alize Johnson | 6-8 | 215 | PF | Missouri State | 22

Johnson is a skilled four who should get some late second round looks.
Donte Grantham

  59. *Phoenix | Donte Grantham | 6-8 | 215 | SF/PF | Clemson | 23

Grantham should also get late second round looks.
Kostas Antetokounmpo

  60. *Philadelphia | Kostas Antetokounmpo | 6-10 | 195 | SF/PF | Dayton | 20

Trust the Process.
