Player | Ht | Wt | Pos | Team | Age

Alex Len

  1. Cleveland | Alex Len | 7-1 | 255 | C | Maryland | 21

With McLemore and Noel's stock falling, one would think this pick comes down to Porter or Len, and I don't see them using the first pick on Porter.
Nerlens Noel

  2. *Orlando | Nerlens Noel | 6-11 | 206 | PF/C | Kentucky | 20

Well, someone has to take Noel. I think a trade takes place to snatch him up here.
Otto Porter

  3. Washington | Otto Porter | 6-9 | 200 | SF | Georgetown | 21

Porter is too solid to pass up at 3. And he's a local kid! Wizards get their guy.
Cody Zeller

  4. Charlotte | Cody Zeller | 7-0 | 230 | PF/C | Indiana | 22

I'm just not that big on Zeller and I feel teams are gonna overlook him a little, too. But he's too talented for the Blazers to pass on here.
Victor Oladipo

  5. Phoenix | Victor Oladipo | 6-4 | 213 | SG/SF | Indiana | 22

Once again, Noel and McLemore's stock is falling, and Oladipo is a pretty solid prospect. He'll give them that defensive edge that they need to complement their budding young offensive guys.
Trey Burke

  6. *New Orleans | Trey Burke | 6-1 | 190 | PG | Michigan | 22

I didn't like Burke to NO originally, but its looking more and more likely, imo. Noel and Davis wouldn't be a very good paiting and I don't think they'll trade this pick.
Anthony Bennett

  7. *Sacramento | Anthony Bennett | 6-7 | 240 | SF/PF | UNLV | 21

I just feel that Bennett is the kind of player Charlotte would draft. He's offensive-minded, he's got potential to be a great scorer in the NBA, and they need help at forward.
Ben McLemore

  8. Detroit | Ben McLemore | 6-5 | 190 | SG | Kansas | 21

Well, McLemore really bombed his workout in Phoenix, but they've seen what he can do in games and if he falls this far, its a steal. They get a smooth, athletic player that can finally give them some offense.
Kentavious Caldwell-Pope

  9. *Utah | Kentavious Caldwell-Pope | 6-6 | 205 | SG | Georgia | 21

KCP is another one of the safer picks in this draft. I hear the Wolves really like him so not much question here.
CJ McCollum

  10. *Portland | CJ McCollum | 6-3 | 197 | PG/SG | Lehigh | 23

Detroit could use shooting guard help, and I think that's what McCollum translates as. He's very talented and would not be a reach here.
Lucas Nogueira

  11. *Philadelphia | Lucas Nogueira | 7-0 | 220 | PF/C | Brazil | 22

OKC doesn't really need much help right now, but they certainly could use some long-term improvement inside. They're the kind of team that could let Nogueira take a few years to develop, and when he does, he could be their center of the future.
Steven Adams

  12. *Oklahoma Cty | Steven Adams | 7-0 | 255 | C | Pittsburgh | 21

Philadelphia needs an athletic big man, and Adams has loads of potential, which is much needed for Philadelphia to get out of the mediocre area they find themselves in.
Sergey Karasev

  13. *Boston | Sergey Karasev | 6-7 | 197 | SG/SF | Russia | 21

Apparently, the Hawks really like Karasev so I predict they forego bolstering their frontcourt and grab him.
Michael Carter-Williams

  14. *Minnesota | Michael Carter-Williams | 6-6 | 185 | PG | Syracuse | 23

Shane Larkin is said to be Utah's guy, but if Carter-Williams falls, I don't see them passing on him.
Shane Larkin

  15. Milwaukee | Shane Larkin | 5-11 | 171 | PG | Miami | 22

Milwaukee would like a point guard. Larkin is a very talented point guard who can bring a cohesiveness that Milwaukee has been lacking.
Dennis Schroeder

  16. *Atlanta | Dennis Schroeder | 6-2 | 168 | PG | Germany | 21

With this whole deal about a promise and whatnot, the Celtics should go with Schroeder, in my opinion. Maybe not the best fit, but his stock has gone back up recently and I think 16 is a good spot for him.
Shabazz Muhammad

  17. Atlanta | Shabazz Muhammad | 6-6 | 225 | SF | UCLA | 22

Muhammad has slid a lot and I predict that Atlanta trades this pick for someone eager to get their hands on him.
Kelly Olynyk

  18. *Dallas | Kelly Olynyk | 7-0 | 234 | C | Gonzaga | 23

Olynyk has fallen a bit here, so the Jazz get lucky a second time and take the BPA by a good margin, even if he isn't necessarily a great fit.
Giannis Adetokoubo

  19. *Cleveland | Giannis Adetokoubo | 6-10 | 205 | SF | Greece | 19

The Mavs are rumored to be shopping this pick. I think someone moves up to grab Giannis here.
Tim Hardaway Jr

  20. Chicago | Tim Hardaway Jr | 6-6 | 200 | SG | Michigan | 22

Personally, I think Hardaway would be a reach at 20, but the Bulls need SG help, as well as shooting, and I think Hardaway would fit in great with their play-hard, play-smart mentality.
Tony Mitchell

  21. *Minnesota | Tony Mitchell | 6-9 | 236 | SF/PF | North Texas | 22

Tony Mitchell could develop into the high-energy bench scorer that the Pacers need. I think the disciplined, veteran culture that the Pacers have will help Mitchell develop into the player he can be.
Tony Snell

  22. Brooklyn | Tony Snell | 6-7 | 198 | SG/SF | New Mexico | 23

Snell would help the Nets in their biggest area of need, wing players. He's a talented guy and I could see a team taking him this high, as he's been flying up draft boards.
Isaiah Canaan

  23. Indiana | Isaiah Canaan | 6-0 | 190 | PG | Murray St. | 23

Canaan is one of the better players available. I think he'd make a solid backup PG for the Cavs. Good value here. And its very possible that someone trades for this pick, in which case Canaan would be a safe choice.
Gorgui Dieng

  24. New York | Gorgui Dieng | 6-11 | 230 | C | Louisville | 24

Dieng slides a bit here, so I think New York will snap him up. They need help inside, as they don't have very much on their bench in the way of post players.
Reggie Bullock

  25. LA Clippers | Reggie Bullock | 6-7 | 200 | SG/SF | North Carolina | 23

The Cavs didn't get their small forward help at 1, so Bullock seems like a logical choice here, even if its a bit of a reach. He's a guy who can play within an offense that includes Irving and Waiters.
Rudy Gobert

  26. *Oklahoma Cty | Rudy Gobert | 7-2 | 238 | C | France | 22

Minnesota could use a backup Center, and I think Gobert has too much potential to pass up here.
Ricardo Ledo

  27. Denver | Ricardo Ledo | 6-6 | 197 | SG | Providence | 22

The Clippers worked out Ledo. He's an LA kind of guy. I think he could thrive on the Clippers. I see them surprising people and taking him here.
Jeff Withey

  28. San Antonio | Jeff Withey | 7-0 | 222 | C | Kansas | 24

San Antonio definitely will need to pick up a center this off-season, and I think WIthey would be a good fit. He fits the culture and can learn from Duncan how to be a more fluid player inside.
Glen Rice Jr.

  29. *Phoenix | Glen Rice Jr. | 6-6 | 211 | SG | USA | 23

I think OKC will surprise people and take Rice here. I've been big on him for a while and I think the OKC front office is smart and will take a good, proven, value player in Rice right here. Nogueira would be a project pick. This is a win-now move.
Nate Wolters

  30. *Golden St. | Nate Wolters | 6-5 | 196 | PG | South Dakota St. | 23

Wolters fits the Nuggets' up-tempo offense and they need a back-up point guard.
Jamaal Franklin

  31. *Cleveland | Jamaal Franklin | 6-5 | 191 | SG/SF | San Diego St. | 23

Franklin is thought to be a first round talent, so Houston gets a solid wing player here, which they need.
Mason Plumlee

  32. *Oklahoma Cty | Mason Plumlee | 6-11 | 238 | PF | Duke | 24

Plumlee has fallen a ways. He can get up and down the court, which fits the Suns' style, and they worked him out, so I think he'll just slip into the 1st round.
Erick Green

  33. Cleveland | Erick Green | 6-3 | 180 | PG/SG | Virginia Tech | 23

Alex Abrines

  34. *Houston | Alex Abrines | 6-6 | 190 | SG | Spain | 21

Allen Crabbe

  35. *Philadelphia | Allen Crabbe | 6-6 | 197 | SG | California | 22

Crabbe has really fallen in my mock, so he's gotta go. Detroit needs wing scorers and maybe they trade this pick.
Mike Muscala

  36. Sacramento | Mike Muscala | 6-11 | 230 | PF/C | Bucknell | 23

Sacramento needs discipline, and Muscala is a smart, efficient, disciplined guy who will give them needed front court depth and maybe even push Cousins to be better. They've worked out Muscala and I think he'd be a good pickup here.
DeShaun Thomas

  37. Detroit | DeShaun Thomas | 6-6 | 220 | SF/PF | Ohio State | 23

Hard to know what philly will do here. They just need depth. Thomas is a good scoring combo forward who knows how to fit in. I like him here.
Jackie Carmichael

  38. *Milwaukee | Jackie Carmichael | 6-9 | 240 | PF | Illinois State | 24

Archie Goodwin

  39. *Portland | Archie Goodwin | 6-5 | 189 | SG | Kentucky | 20

If the Cavs still have this pick, they might take their first SG of the draft, a guy who they've worked out and who has potential to be a steal here. Or, some other team could trade up this high to get a guy like Goodwin.
James Southerland

  40. Portland | James Southerland | 6-8 | 221 | SF/PF | Syracuse | 24

Pierre Jackson

  41. *Memphis | Pierre Jackson | 5-10 | 176 | PG | Baylor | 23

James Ennis

  42. *New Orleans | James Ennis | 6-7 | 200 | SG/SF | Long Beach State | 24

CJ Leslie

  43. *Dallas | CJ Leslie | 6-9 | 209 | SF/PF | NC State | 23

Kenny Kadji

  44. *Atlanta | Kenny Kadji | 6-10 | 242 | PF/C | Miami | 26

Lorenzo Brown

  45. *Portland | Lorenzo Brown | 6-5 | 189 | PG/SG | NC State | 24

Robert Covington

  46. Utah | Robert Covington | 6-7 | 209 | SF | Tennessee State | 23

Livio Jean-Charles

  47. *Denver | Livio Jean-Charles | 6-9 | 217 | SF/PF | France | 21

The Thunder, being a pretty solid team, can afford to take a foreign project like Jean-Charles. He's got talent and he'll give the Thunder more depth at the forward position, which will be needed of Perry Jones doesn't pan out.
Myck Kabongo

  48. LA Lakers | Myck Kabongo | 6-2 | 180 | PG | Texas | 22

Dewayne Dedmon

  49. Chicago | Dewayne Dedmon | 6-11 | 240 | C | USC | 25

Nemanja Nedovic

  50. *Miami | Nemanja Nedovic | 6-3 | 190 | PG/SG | Serbia | 23

Vander Blue

  51. *Orlando | Vander Blue | 6-5 | 197 | PG/SG | Marquette | 22

Solomon Hill

  52. *Minnesota | Solomon Hill | 6-7 | 226 | SF | Arizona | 23

Carrick Felix

  53. Indiana | Carrick Felix | 6-6 | 203 | SG/SF | Arizona St. | 24

Oleksandr Lypovyy

  54. *Philadelphia | Oleksandr Lypovyy | 6-8 | 200 | SF | Ukraine | 23

Janis Timma

  55. Memphis | Janis Timma | 6-8 | 226 | SF | Latvia | 22

Trevor Mbakwe

  56. *Detroit | Trevor Mbakwe | 6-8 | 236 | PF/C | Minnesota | 25

Grant Jerrett

  57. *Phoenix | Grant Jerrett | 6-10 | 232 | PF | Arizona | 21

Bojan Dubljevic

  58. San Antonio | Bojan Dubljevic | 6-9 | 235 | PF/C | Montenegro | 23

Joffrey Lauvergne

  59. *Minnesota | Joffrey Lauvergne | 6-11 | 240 | PF/C | France | 23

Andre Roberson

  60. *Memphis | Andre Roberson | 6-7 | 206 | SF/PF | Colorado | 22
