Player | Ht | Wt | Pos | Team | Age

Karl-Anthony Towns

  1. Minnesota | Karl-Anthony Towns | 7-0 | 250 | C | Kentucky | 19

Has the best elbow moves since Bill Cartwright. And I am not talking about a spot on the floor. Towns ability to ignite the break with blocks makes him the pick here. Has the outside game to compliment Randle. I have him at two because he seems physically kind of stiff and you can never equate a players adjustment to the speed of the NBA game until they are in it. The big question: Is there a roster spot for Karlito?
D'Angelo Russell

  2. LA Lakers | D'Angelo Russell | 6-4 | 195 | PG/SG | Ohio State | 19

Big charismatic guard who really shoots it. Vision for days. Looked huge in college. Will he look huge in the show? Is he a point guard?
Jahlil Okafor

  3. Philadelphia | Jahlil Okafor | 6-11 | 270 | C | Duke | 19

A low post nightmare. A free throw line nightmare as well. His mobility is kind of freakish for his size and the league is getting smaller. In the NBA grind he must shed some pounds to avoid injury.
Trey Lyles

  4. *New York | Trey Lyles | 6-10 | 240 | PF | Kentucky | 19

For me, he's the most underrated player at this point in the process. So skilled. So big. Has some Dirk in him. Attacks off the dribble as well as any big in the draft.
Justise Winslow

  5. Orlando | Justise Winslow | 6-6 | 222 | SG/SF | Duke | 19

Is he Jimmy Butler 2.0?
Emmanuel Mudiay

  6. Sacramento | Emmanuel Mudiay | 6-5 | 200 | PG | Congo | 19

A freak athlete with pure point instincts. The shooting always improves with all the extra reps available in the show. Should grow into a complete ball-hawk.
Mario Hezonja

  7. Denver | Mario Hezonja | 6-8 | 215 | SG/SF | Croatia | 20

Sharp shooting European that will probably go higher than this. Some say he needs an attitude adjustment.
Stanley Johnson

  8. Detroit | Stanley Johnson | 6-6 | 242 | SF | Arizona | 19

Stanley Johnson is a beast and a gamer. More of a three than Justice Winslow. This guy I can envision guarding Carmelo. Or KD. Ouch...
Frank Kaminsky

  9. Charlotte | Frank Kaminsky | 7-1 | 230 | C | Wisconsin | 22

Alvin Adams for the 21st Century. Can play high or low, is a character, and will look cool in purple.
Devin Booker

  10. Miami | Devin Booker | 6-6 | 205 | SG | Kentucky | 18

Has all the skills that make you a star in the 21st century NBA. Again, where would Klay Thompson go in his redrafted class? An effortless scorer. Defense may be the issue. I don't think he defends as well as Thompson, yet. His combine workouts, especially agility, will be essential. He killed them.
Willie Cauley-Stein

  11. Indiana | Willie Cauley-Stein | 7-0 | 242 | C | Kentucky | 21

Defense. Lots of blocked shots to ignite the fast break. From here on he's the first pick you make if you are serious about winning.
Myles Turner

  12. Utah | Myles Turner | 6-11 | 240 | C | Texas | 19

Skilled but brittle? Good catch and shoot player who appears to be running on teacups. Combine could dispel or confirm physical issues for him and really move him one way or the other on the draft board. He's got great next level size. He should be able to swing between the four and five.
Kristaps Porzingis

  13. Phoenix | Kristaps Porzingis | 7-1 | 230 | PF | Latvia | 19

Too skinny. Wonderfully skilled. Just a teenager. His lack of exposure to American front court players worries me. Yi Jian Lian looked amazing in workouts too.
Cameron Payne

  14. Oklahoma Cty | Cameron Payne | 6-2 | 185 | PG | Murray St. | 20

Still climbing. Would Sacramento dare? Maybe not. Elfrid Payton went at ten last year. Where would he go if they had a do-over?
Bobby Portis

  15. *Washington | Bobby Portis | 6-11 | 245 | PF | Arkansas | 20

A face up big for a team with decent bigs. Not super athletic, but skilled and has good size. Can shoot it. In the first round you should always draft a player who plays the position that is overstocked in that particular draft. This year it's the bigs. In a normal year for bigs Portis would be a top ten pick for a team with a real need. If not, see below.
Montrezl Harrell

  16. Boston | Montrezl Harrell | 6-8 | 255 | PF | Louisville | 21

Elite pick and roll defenders are hard to come by and becoming more and more valuable with the new changes in how the game is officiated. Think Carroll (Hawks) or Leonard (Spurs) but bigger. A nice compliment to Otto Porter. With Draymond Green's emergence he may go higher.
Rashad Vaughn

  17. Milwaukee | Rashad Vaughn | 6-5 | 200 | SG | UNLV | 18

Coming out a year too early? A prototype. May end up one of those Xavier Henry guys that bounces around a bit. A solid get here.
Tyus Jones

  18. *Houston | Tyus Jones | 6-1 | 185 | PG | Duke | 19

Plays a lot like Steve Nash when you think about it. May be shorter than Mark Cuban.
Kevon Looney

  19. *New York | Kevon Looney | 6-9 | 222 | PF | UCLA | 19

Multidimensional forward for a team loaded at the bottom and top.
Rondae Hollis-Jefferson

  20. Toronto | Rondae Hollis-Jefferson | 6-7 | 210 | SF | Arizona | 20

He's being under rated right now. Kinda reminds me of a young Dennis Johnson. The Seattle-Phoenix Dennis with the defense, scoring, and good hops.
Delon Wright

  21. Dallas | Delon Wright | 6-5 | 180 | PG/SG | Utah | 23

A play now combo guard for a win now squad.
Justin Anderson

  22. Chicago | Justin Anderson | 6-6 | 230 | SG/SF | Virginia | 21

Rugged wing for a rugged team. Injuries last season prevented him from hitting his stride.
Sam Dekker

  23. *Brooklyn | Sam Dekker | 6-9 | 220 | SF | Wisconsin | 21

Great pick for a team in need of three point shooting.
Terry Rozier

  24. *Minnesota | Terry Rozier | 6-2 | 190 | PG | Louisville | 21

You know why. Defense to offense in the blink of an eye.
Jarell Martin

  25. Memphis | Jarell Martin | 6-9 | 240 | PF | LSU | 21

A bit of a throwback, in a good way.
RJ Hunter

  26. San Antonio | RJ Hunter | 6-6 | 185 | SG | Georgia St. | 21

Bombs away. Range to the parking lot. If he looks short at the combine he falls to the second round. If he looks bigger... maybe higher than here.
Christian Wood

  27. *LA Lakers | Christian Wood | 6-10 | 215 | PF | UNLV | 19

Wonderful get here. Maybe came out a year early so the Spurs get a gem. They can wait.
Kelly Oubre

  28. *Boston | Kelly Oubre | 6-7 | 205 | SF | Kansas | 19

Came out a year early, maybe. A ridiculous get here. Another example of the rebirth of the three.
Jerian Grant

  29. *Brooklyn | Jerian Grant | 6-4 | 200 | PG | Notre Dame | 22

Talented guard who can play with or without the ball. Need more scoring? Grant can create easy shots for others and make tough ones himself.
Chris McCullough

  30. Golden St. | Chris McCullough | 6-9 | 200 | PF | Syracuse | 20

Will go higher if he is medically cleared before the draft. Rail thin.
Pat Connaughton

  31. *Cleveland | Pat Connaughton | 6-5 | 215 | SG | Notre Dame | 22

Two sport guy who has peaked at just the right time to draw the attention of GMs league wide.
Jordan Mickey

  32. *Houston | Jordan Mickey | 6-8 | 240 | PF | LSU | 20

A freak athlete with a good motor. May be one of those guys that make a better pro player than college guy. A fast break four for a running team.
Nikola Milutinov

  33. *Boston | Nikola Milutinov | 7-0 | 225 | PF/C | Serbia | 20

An athletic European big. Who knew? Could go higher. Maybe to Detroit.
Cliff Alexander

  34. *LA Lakers | Cliff Alexander | 6-8 | 240 | PF/C | Kansas | 19

Lay some wood on somebody, Big Fella. Will grow and get better and have a long career.
Olivier Hanlan

  35. *New York | Olivier Hanlan | 6-4 | 185 | PG/SG | Boston College | 22

Solid swing guard for a team with back court needs.
Norman Powell

  36. *Cleveland | Norman Powell | 6-4 | 215 | SG | UCLA | 22

Looks like he's thirty. The Heat love these plug-right-in guys.
Dakari Johnson

  37. *Philadelphia | Dakari Johnson | 7-0 | 260 | C | Kentucky | 19

Big. Could he turn into another Bynum? Wouldn't that be funny.
Rakeem Christmas

  38. Detroit | Rakeem Christmas | 6-9 | 245 | PF/C | Syracuse | 23

Kendrik Perkins turned inside out. Boosted his stock by hitting shot after shot at the combine 5-on-5.
Guillermo Hernangomez

  39. *Brooklyn | Guillermo Hernangomez | 6-11 | 250 | PF/C | Spain | 21

Who? Multi-skilled big to play the inside out game. Could be Milutinov or Guven.
Brandon Ashley

  40. Miami | Brandon Ashley | 6-8 | 230 | PF | Arizona | 20

A talented, multi-skilled, slightly undersized big. I think he may be a power three. Think Tobias Harris.
Joseph Young

  41. *Portland | Joseph Young | 6-2 | 185 | PG/SG | Oregon | 23

Point guards must score these days.
JP Tokoto

  42. Utah | JP Tokoto | 6-6 | 195 | SG/SF | North Carolina | 21

A lunch bucket guy for the wing spot. Great defense, but also good in transition and can shoot it.
Terran Petteway

  43. Indiana | Terran Petteway | 6-6 | 210 | SF | Nebraska | 22

Defense and scoring? Maybe a first round pick, if he was a sophomore. How weird is that?
Mouhammadou Jaiteh

  44. *Memphis | Mouhammadou Jaiteh | 6-11 | 250 | C | France | 20

Another long athletic project. Will make a good backup rim protector.
Treveon Graham

  45. Boston | Treveon Graham | 6-6 | 220 | SG | VCU | 21

Strong SG with a good stroke who is used to playing hard. Love this guy.
Tyler Harvey

  46. *Toronto | Tyler Harvey | 6-4 | 180 | SG | Eastern Washington | 21

Bombs away. Has some Michael Redd in him. Is he athletic enough? How big is he really? The combine will help or hurt him.
Richaun Holmes

  47. *Philadelphia | Richaun Holmes | 6-9 | 245 | PF | Bowling Green | 21

A chippy, athletic ball of energy.
Anthony Brown

  48. Oklahoma Cty | Anthony Brown | 6-7 | 210 | SG/SF | Stanford | 22

Good, seasoned wing for a young team that already has just about everything they'll need.
Keifer Sykes

  49. Washington | Keifer Sykes | 6-0 | 170 | PG | Wisconsin Green Bay | 21

Zoom. Lightning quick PG for a team with a real need.
Branden Dawson

  50. *Atlanta | Branden Dawson | 6-7 | 230 | SF/PF | Michigan St. | 22

Reminds me of all the current Hawks forwards.
Aaron Harrison

  51. *Orlando | Aaron Harrison | 6-6 | 210 | SG | Kentucky | 20

The happy twin with the knock down jump shot.
Josh Richardson

  52. Dallas | Josh Richardson | 6-6 | 200 | SG | Tennessee | 21

Freak defender with an improving shot.
Larry Nance Jr.

  53. *Cleveland | Larry Nance Jr. | 6-9 | 230 | PF | Wyoming | 22

A project. Great instincts. Good bloodline.
Vince Hunter

  54. *Portland | Vince Hunter | 6-8 | 210 | SF/PF | UTEP | 20

Motor guy coming off the bench. Had a fantastic combine.
Cedi Osman

  55. San Antonio | Cedi Osman | 6-8 | 215 | SF | Turkey | 20

Loves to attack off the dribble and in transition and it is all about getting easy shots in transition these days. Looks really thin.
Andrew Harrison

  56. *LA Clippers | Andrew Harrison | 6-6 | 215 | PG/SG | Kentucky | 20

Potty mouthed twin who can play two positions. Had the most mature point game at the combine. If not here then he's a Pelican. For me, he does not have an attitude problem, he's already a professional. He's a giant Mo Cheeks.
Chris Walker

  57. *Denver | Chris Walker | 6-10 | 210 | PF | Florida | 20

Athletic project.
Aaron White

  58. *Philadelphia | Aaron White | 6-9 | 220 | SF/PF | Iowa | 22

Has some McRoberts in him. Is he this years Chandler Parsons or this years Kyle Singler?
Michael Frazier

  59. Atlanta | Michael Frazier | 6-5 | 200 | SG | Florida | 21

Talented prototype SG. Had a nice combine and can shoot it.
Quinn Cook

  60. *Philadelphia | Quinn Cook | 6-1 | 180 | PG | Duke | 22

Bombs away shooter in a point guards body. Think D-Fish.
