Player | Ht | Wt | Pos | Team | Age

Andrew Wiggins

  1. Cleveland | Andrew Wiggins | 6-8 | 200 | SF | Kansas | 19

Best "upside guy" on the board. He and the Greek Freak are the new cornerstone in Milwaukee. Great athlete, unselfish (almost to a fault), and should bring some buzz to Brew Town.
Dante Exum

  2. Milwaukee | Dante Exum | 6-6 | 196 | PG/SG | Australia | 19

Last year they went with Victor Oladipo. The Magic complete their guard core by going with the best player left on the board.
Joel Embiid

  3. *Philadelphia | Joel Embiid | 7-0 | 250 | C | Kansas | 20

Possibly the next Hakeem or David Robinson. How do they pass him up? If LeBron returns, then Cleveland will start hanging up some banners.
Marcus Smart

  4. Orlando | Marcus Smart | 6-3 | 227 | PG | Oklahoma State | 20

This pick is going to New York as part of the Carmelo Anthony deal. Team Jackson gets its point guard of the future and the new face of the franchise. Can create, get to the rack, and defend.
Jabari Parker

  5. Utah | Jabari Parker | 6-9 | 240 | SF/PF | Duke | 19

Jabari can score. Either a 3 or a 4, but the guy can score.
Julius Randle

  6. *Boston | Julius Randle | 6-9 | 250 | PF | Kentucky | 19

Hard working, blue collar guy with strength and athleticism. He and Trey Burke can work something out in pick and rolls. Great complement to a big man like Enes Kanter or Favors. Ok, they probably don't complement each other at all, but Randle might just be the best guy still on the board.
Zach LaVine

  7. LA Lakers | Zach LaVine | 6-6 | 180 | PG/SG | UCLA | 19

The Lakers get a high flyer. He has an "it" factor. The key to the Post-Kobe Lakers.
Aaron Gordon

  8. Sacramento | Aaron Gordon | 6-9 | 220 | PF | Arizona | 19

This pick is going to Minnesota in a Kevin Love trade. The T Wolves get a freak athlete, and high motor defender to pair with Ricky Rubio. AG also starts a new hobby collecting Rubio's bricks.
Noah Vonleh

  9. *Charlotte | Noah Vonleh | 6-9 | 247 | PF | Indiana | 19

Drops a bit. Great complement to DeMarcus Cousins.
James Young

  10. *Orlando | James Young | 6-6 | 215 | SG | Kentucky | 19

MJ's Hornets get a great wing player to put with MKG. Young can shoot, score, and dunk. If Jordan can work with him, James Young could be an all-star.
Doug McDermott

  11. *Chicago | Doug McDermott | 6-7 | 220 | SF | Creighton | 22

Denver gets their new Carmelo Anthony? Alex English? Kiki Vandeweghe? Doug can score. He also completes my Chicken McDuggets nickname.
Rodney Hood

  12. *Philadelphia | Rodney Hood | 6-8 | 208 | SF | Duke | 22

He gives the Celtics, I mean Hawks, a guy who can spread the floor with his shooting. A solid pick here. Could create a marketing windfall with the Atlanta Hood jersey.
Gary Harris

  13. *Minnesota | Gary Harris | 6-4 | 205 | SG | Michigan St. | 20

Rubio needs a guy who can shoot.
Nik Stauskas

  14. *Phoenix | Nik Stauskas | 6-6 | 207 | SG | Michigan | 21

A shooter next to MCW. They can go with a three guard rotation too with MCW, Wroten, and Freak Nik.
Kyle Anderson

  15. *Atlanta | Kyle Anderson | 6-9 | 230 | SF | UCLA | 21

A playmaker and a guy that can play small forward. Multi-talented.
Cleanthony Early

  16. *Denver | Cleanthony Early | 6-7 | 210 | SF/PF | Wichita State | 23

This pick is going to Minny. Minny has already picked up Aaron Gordon and Gary Harris. Cleanthony Early gives them a small forward who can score and get out on the break.
Dario Saric

  17. *Boston | Dario Saric | 6-10 | 225 | SF/PF | Croatia | 20

With lots of young guys, and depth everywhere, the Suns can afford to wait on Saric if he doesn't come over right away.
Shabazz Napier

  18. *Phoenix | Shabazz Napier | 6-0 | 175 | PG | UConn | 23

Reminds me of Steph Curry. The Suns get another shooter and scorer, and a perfect third guard behind Dragic and Bledsoe.
Adreian Payne

  19. *Denver | Adreian Payne | 6-10 | 240 | PF | Michigan St. | 23

A pick and pop big man who can also block a few shots. This pick goes to the Knicks. Payne gives the Knicks a post Amare/Bargs/Chandler big man with range and hops. Phil bets he can run some triangle with Smart, Jimmy Butler (part of the Carmelo trade), Hardaway, Jr., and Payne. I bet he is right.
Tyler Ennis

  20. Toronto | Tyler Ennis | 6-2 | 180 | PG | Syracuse | 20

If the Raptors don't keep Kyle Lowry he could be the point guard of their future.
Elfrid Payton

  21. *Oklahoma Cty | Elfrid Payton | 6-4 | 185 | PG | Louisiana Lafayette | 20

The Thunder might need a floor leader. I love Russ and Reggie, but if this guy can run the team, then he would really fill a need. He could allow Russ to play off the ball and would give the Thunder another guy to throw at uber-talented western conference point guards like Chris Paul, Tony Parker, Steph Curry, and Mike Conley.
TJ Warren

  22. Memphis | TJ Warren | 6-8 | 220 | SF | NC State | 21

The Grizzlies need a new small forward. They also need another scorer. Hello, Mr. Warren.
KJ McDaniels

  23. *Utah | KJ McDaniels | 6-6 | 196 | SF | Clemson | 21

I haven't followed this guy but he is higher on some boards. Known as a great defender, the Clippers can use somebody to defend the likes of Kevin Durant, Kawhi Leonard, and Rudy Gay. Or, LeBron James if Ballmer's Two Billion Dollar Ballers can get to the Finals next season.
PJ Hairston

  24. *Miami | PJ Hairston | 6-5 | 228 | SG | USA | 21

A scorer. He and Dion Waiters will fight (literally?) for shots.
Glenn Robinson III

  25. Houston | Glenn Robinson III | 6-7 | 211 | SF | Michigan | 20

A good athlete with great lineage. Gordon Hayward insurance.
Jordan Adams

  26. Charlotte | Jordan Adams | 6-5 | 209 | SG | UCLA | 20

Jordan drafts Jordan. He splits time at the 2 with CDR.
Clint Capela

  27. *Phoenix | Clint Capela | 6-11 | 222 | PF/C | Switzerland | 20

Athletic, bouncy big man who fills their hole at power forward.
Thanasis Antetokounmpo

  28. LA Clippers | Thanasis Antetokounmpo | 6-6 | 205 | SF | Greece | 22

Another wing and the Greek Freak's bro. Why not take a chance at 27? With some many young players, the Suns go after a guy with a lot of upside.
Jarnell Stokes

  29. Oklahoma Cty | Jarnell Stokes | 6-8 | 260 | PF | Tennessee | 20

A solid, well-built, bruising power forward who can score, board, and has some range. He also has a Euro-step and a floater. Would give the Thunder a really good low post scorer. Can also team with Serge Ibaka in smaller lineups.
Jerami Grant

  30. San Antonio | Jerami Grant | 6-8 | 214 | SF | Syracuse | 20

A good athlete with some size. Fills the Thad Young spot if they trade Thad Young.
Jordan Clarkson

  31. Milwaukee | Jordan Clarkson | 6-4 | 186 | PG/SG | Missouri | 22

Best guy on the board? He and Monta could give other teams fits. Along with Calderon the Mavs could sport an effective three guard rotation next year.
Nick Johnson

  32. *Philadelphia | Nick Johnson | 6-3 | 198 | SG | Arizona | 21

Utah gets some point guard depth.
Mitch McGary

  33. *Cleveland | Mitch McGary | 6-10 | 266 | C | Michigan | 22

I guess teams forgot about this guy. Had a good run to the Final Four then hurt his back. The only thing more popular than beer right now is weed.
Cory Jefferson

  34. *New York | Cory Jefferson | 6-9 | 220 | PF | Baylor | 23

A good athlete with size. The Raptors are young and athletic. This guy is also young and athletic.
Markel Brown

  35. *Memphis | Markel Brown | 6-4 | 185 | SG | Oklahoma State | 22

Great athlete. The Pistons need depth at the 2 behind KCP.
Jusuf Nurkic

  36. *Milwaukee | Jusuf Nurkic | 6-11 | 280 | C | Bosnia & Herzegovina | 20

I have no idea who this guy is. Hopefully Philly does...
Semaj Christon

  37. *Toronto | Semaj Christon | 6-3 | 186 | PG | Xavier | 21

I don't follow this guy much. Xavier is usually a pesky team.
DeAndre Kane

  38. Detroit | DeAndre Kane | 6-4 | 200 | PG/SG | Iowa St. | 25

A tough, hard nosed player. Denver can use some help at guard. Kane is a guy who can defend and make life difficult for his opponents. Kane can guard the guy that Doug can't guard. That might be pretty much everybody.
LaQuinton Ross

  39. *Philadelphia | LaQuinton Ross | 6-8 | 240 | SF | Ohio State | 21

If Chandler Parsons leaves then this guy is still 6'8, 240.
Juvonte Reddic

  40. *Minnesota | Juvonte Reddic | 6-9 | 250 | PF/C | VCU | 22

This guy played at VCU. I like VCU. Shaka Smart is a good, young coach. Hopefully he stays there. Great mid-majors are great for college basketball. That's what it is about. Like the VCU defense. They really get after you there at Virginia Commonwealth. I wish VCU would join the American Athletic Conference. With Louisville gone, we could use another team. Who is coming back for VCU this year? Are they getting any hot recruits this year? Ok, enough about VCU. On to the 44th pick...
Alec Brown

  41. Denver | Alec Brown | 7-1 | 231 | PF/C | Wisconsin Green Bay | 22

You can't teach height. The Hornets drafted two wings. Now they go with a big guy. Cody Zeller needs a running buddy to hit the Charlotte area wine bars with.
Sean Kilpatrick

  42. *Houston | Sean Kilpatrick | 6-4 | 220 | SG | Cincinnati | 24

Good scorer. Bradley Beal can teach him some tricks.
Johnny O'Bryant

  43. Atlanta | Johnny O'Bryant | 6-8 | 257 | PF/C | LSU | 21

I think he is pretty good. And, at 48, that's pretty good. Another power forward for Philadelphia. This site says he can play center. WHERE?????
Patric Young

  44. *Brooklyn | Patric Young | 6-10 | 247 | PF/C | Florida | 22

I like his size especially if he embraces the rebounding, defending, enforcer role.
Jordan McRae

  45. Charlotte | Jordan McRae | 6-5 | 180 | SG | Tennessee | 23

This pick is either staying in Chicago or going to New York in the Carmelo trade. If the Bulls keep it, then McRae gives them an option on the wing. If Butler is dealt in that mega-trade, then McRae splits time with Tony Snell, and Kirk Hinrich at the 2.
Walter Tavares

  46. *LA Lakers | Walter Tavares | 7-3 | 260 | C | Spain | 22

I don't know who this guy is either, but he is taller, and supposedly a guy who can block shots and defend the pick and roll. The Suns can use an anchor on the inside. This could be that guy.
Spencer Dinwiddie

  47. *New Orleans | Spencer Dinwiddie | 6-6 | 205 | PG/SG | Colorado | 21

Versatile player is the best guy on the board.
Melvin Ejim

  48. *Atlanta | Melvin Ejim | 6-6 | 220 | SF/PF | Iowa St. | 23

This new Sixers team is full of hybrid players. They also aren't afraid of undersized power forwards. Anybody know what the D League scoring and rebounding record is?
Roy Devyn Marble

  49. Chicago | Roy Devyn Marble | 6-6 | 192 | SG | Iowa | 22

Cool name. Ricky Rubio and Roy Marble might not turn into the best backcourt in the history of the NBA but it SOUNDS like a good backcourt.
CJ Fair

  50. Phoenix | CJ Fair | 6-8 | 218 | SF | Syracuse | 23

How many small forwards did Syracuse have this year? CJ Fair is a pretty good player. Not sure he can play power forward though...
Joe Harris

  51. *New York | Joe Harris | 6-6 | 215 | SG/SF | Virginia | 23

Can shoot, score, play either wing spot. We won't know until after the draft if LeBron is staying in Miami. Harris gives Miami another shooter. He is a carbon copy of D Wade, except not at all. If LeBron leaves, the Heat are, umm, in big trouble. Harris went to Virginia. UVA is a good school. Maybe this guy is smart. Hopefully this kid can figure something out.
DeAndre Daniels

  52. *Philadelphia | DeAndre Daniels | 6-8 | 195 | SF | UConn | 22

A slender athlete with length who can shoot the 3 from the outside, and block shots and board some on the inside. He can help replace Shane Battier if he retires.
Khem Birch

  53. *Minnesota | Khem Birch | 6-9 | 209 | PF | UNLV | 22

The Spurs are reloading and they are going BIG. With Isiah Austin on board, the Spurs get another inside threat in Khem Birch. If James McAdoo could do anything, then he would have been the pick. But, unfortunately, he can't.
Xavier Thames

  54. *San Antonio | Xavier Thames | 6-3 | 187 | PG/SG | San Diego St. | 23

Solid pick up. Another guy who will tear up the D League.
James McAdoo

  55. *Charlotte | James McAdoo | 6-9 | 230 | PF | North Carolina | 21

If the Raptors miss Rudy Gay then this is a guy who should be able to play the 3, but is more of a 4.
Bogdan Bogdanovic

  56. *Orlando | Bogdan Bogdanovic | 6-6 | 205 | SG | Serbia | 22

Another guy who has been on the radar screen awhile. If he is here, then he might get drafted.
Andre Dawkins

  57. Indiana | Andre Dawkins | 6-5 | 205 | SG | Duke | 23

Vasilje Micic

  58. *Philadelphia | Vasilje Micic | 6-6 | 202 | PG | Serbia | 20

Russ Smith

  59. *Brooklyn | Russ Smith | 6-1 | 160 | PG/SG | Louisville | 23

OJ Mayo better watch out. There is a new undersized combo guard in town...
Jordan Bachynski

  60. *Brooklyn | Jordan Bachynski | 7-2 | 248 | C | Arizona St. | 25

How many Jordan's are in this draft? This could be a record... Hopefully next year we get a bunch of guys named Earvin and Larry...
