Player | Ht | Wt | Pos | Team | Age

Alex Len

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

I really don't want to mock Len to the Cavs, but where there's smoke, there's often fire, and the Cavs have a history of making questionable choices in drafts recently (Tristan Thompson over JoVal, Waiters (despite not even working him out) over Drummond/Barnes/etc.). Len is not a good value pick at #1, and if the Cavs make this pick, they could be looking at one of the all time #1 busts.
Nerlens Noel

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

The Magic said they'd snatch up Noel if he isn't picked by the Cavs, and that'd be a great choice for them. He and Vucevic complement each other really well, and if they trade Aflallo for Bledsoe, have the makings of a good young team.
Otto Porter

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

Great fit alongside Beal and Wall. Also helps that he's a local product who can put butts in the seats.
Anthony Bennett

  4. Charlotte | Anthony Bennett | 6-7 | 240 | SF/PF | UNLV | 21

They need to take the BPA regardless of position, because Walker and MKG (and MAYBE Biyombo) are the only decent pieces on this team. Bennett may have Larry Johnson potential, and the Cats can afford to take a swing for the fences, as they're gonna suck regardless of who they take.
Victor Oladipo

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

Phoenix also just needs to take the BPA. 'Dipo can step in and be a leader in the clubhouse.
Trey Burke

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

Can't seem to come up with a compelling reason why they'd go with anyone but Burke here. They really need a point guard (Vasquez, while he improved a ton, should be a back-up), and Burke has everything needed to be a good starting PG in the NBA.
CJ McCollum

  7. *Sacramento | CJ McCollum | 6-3 | 197 | PG/SG | Lehigh | 23

Heard that Sacto really likes McCollum (they've worked him out more than once), so I can see them pulling the trigger on CJ. He can bring leadership and possibly a true PG (if he is capbable) to the Kings.
Michael Carter-Williams

  8. Detroit | Michael Carter-Williams | 6-6 | 185 | PG | Syracuse | 23

Let's be real: Brandon Knight is NOT an NBA PG. He's a 2 guard trapped in a 1's body. MCW would be a great pick for them here at 8 because they really need a true PG to make Drummond and Monroe even more terrifying. It would be a dream if Burke were to fall this far, but MCW is a good consolation prize.
Ben McLemore

  9. *Utah | Ben McLemore | 6-5 | 190 | SG | Kansas | 21

The first big surprise of the night is that McLemore falls. I've heard his workouts have not been very good, and that teams are worried about his passivity. Minnesota should be insanely excited if McLemore falls to them, because he fits what the team needs perfectly. He wouldn't be expected to be the #1 option, he can shoot the lights out, and he has good size for a 2.
Kentavious Caldwell-Pope

  10. *Portland | Kentavious Caldwell-Pope | 6-6 | 205 | SG | Georgia | 21

I've heard Portland really likes KCP. He makes sense, giving them a prototypical 2 guard that can play 2 ways.
Cody Zeller

  11. *Philadelphia | Cody Zeller | 7-0 | 230 | PF/C | Indiana | 22

A perfect fit. Philly desperately needs size and athleticism, and Zeller is both. He also has the potential to be the best player in this draft, and he would immediately be in the ROY race.
Steven Adams

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

He's already better than Perk defensively, and he has the potential to be the best big from this draft offensively.
Sergey Karasev

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

Heard that Dallas is liking this guy if they keep the pick, also there are rumors that Cleveland is gonna try and trade up to this pick to nab Sergey.
Dennis Schroeder

  14. *Minnesota | Dennis Schroeder | 6-2 | 168 | PG | Germany | 21

Utah desperately needs a true point. I hear they like Shane Larkin, but I have a hard time believing they'll pass up Schroeder if he's available here, as he's the most talented PG on the board.
Shabazz Muhammad

  15. Milwaukee | Shabazz Muhammad | 6-6 | 225 | SF | UCLA | 22

Lucas Nogueira

  16. *Atlanta | Lucas Nogueira | 7-0 | 220 | PF/C | Brazil | 22

Giannis Adetokoubo

  17. Atlanta | Giannis Adetokoubo | 6-10 | 205 | SF | Greece | 19

Kelly Olynyk

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

Wouldn't surprise me to see them try to trade this pick. If they stand pat, they're taking a big. A big that can score. Kendrick Perkins had a NEGATIVE PER in the playoffs, and I have no idea why they wouldn't amnesty him this year. Olynyk is the most offensively skilled big in the draft, and would help right away.
Tim Hardaway Jr

  19. *Cleveland | Tim Hardaway Jr | 6-6 | 200 | SG | Michigan | 22

Gorgui Dieng

  20. Chicago | Gorgui Dieng | 6-11 | 230 | C | Louisville | 24

Shane Larkin

  21. *Minnesota | Shane Larkin | 5-11 | 171 | PG | Miami | 22

Mason Plumlee

  22. Brooklyn | Mason Plumlee | 6-11 | 238 | PF | Duke | 24

Tony Mitchell

  23. Indiana | Tony Mitchell | 6-9 | 236 | SF/PF | North Texas | 22

Tony Snell

  24. New York | Tony Snell | 6-7 | 198 | SG/SF | New Mexico | 23

Allen Crabbe

  25. LA Clippers | Allen Crabbe | 6-6 | 197 | SG | California | 22

Ricardo Ledo

  26. *Oklahoma Cty | Ricardo Ledo | 6-6 | 197 | SG | Providence | 22

  28. San Antonio | Erick Green | 6-3 | 180 | PG/SG | Virginia Tech | 23
