Andrew Wiggins

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

The 76ers have had their eye on Wiggins the entire year, and in this current mock he falls to them at 3. Wiggins is a great fit in Phillys fast paced offense, and would give the 76ers a two way wing with high upside, and a good fit to last years ROY Michael Carter-Williams. Ultimately, despite rumors of the Sixers interest in trading MCW and taking Exum, I don't buy it. I think they take the best of Parker or Wiggins, or Embiid if he falls past Cleveland or Milwaukee. The latter seems unlikely unless he gets a negative bill of health.
Jabari Parker

  2. Milwaukee | Jabari Parker | 6-9 | 240 | SF/PF | Duke | 19

The Bucks need help just about everywhere. Milwaukee, a team that some thought would be bad but not necessarily one of the tankers, ended up with the worst record in the NBA, and for their troubles the second overall pick. Embiid would likely be in play here if he's available. In this current mock, he's not, and so I think they look at either Jabari Parker, Andrew Wiggins and Dante Exum. Dante Exum would be a great fit with this roster, but is a bit of a reach here at 2. Andrew Wiggins is my second favorite prospect in this draft, though the gap between him and Parker is small, but reports are that the Bucks have Parker more highly rated. They already have an athletic two way SF in Giannis Antentokounmpo (I hope I spelt that correctly), who showed a ton of promise and intrigue last year for this team. Also, this team is in need of an offensive boost, and Parker could end up being the best offensive player of this rookie class.
Dante Exum

  3. *Philadelphia | Dante Exum | 6-6 | 196 | PG/SG | Australia | 19

Noah Vonleh

  4. Orlando | Noah Vonleh | 6-9 | 247 | PF | Indiana | 18

Julius Randle

  5. Utah | Julius Randle | 6-9 | 250 | PF | Kentucky | 19

Joel Embiid

  6. *Boston | Joel Embiid | 7-0 | 250 | C | Kansas | 20

The Cavs lucked out for the third time in four years, landing the number one pick. Three years ago, they nabbed PG of the future Kyrie Irving, and last year they surprised everyone and took highly criticized Anthony Bennett. There is a lot of pressure on this team to win with all the picks they've had lately, they had hopes of making the playoffs this year but couldn't do so, even in the awful eastern conference. With that added pressure, they could certainly look to take the less risky picks of Jabari Parker or Andrew Wiggins. There are certainly concerns with Joel Embiids back, and we all remember the travesty that Greg Oden became with his injury history. Nonetheless, Embiid has the highest upside in the draft, and is also the best fit for a Cavs team who's been looking for their center of the future for a while now. Embiid slides in nicely next to Tristan Thompson and Anthony Bennett, allowing them to play their more natural position. The still solid yet now 32 year old Anderson Varejao gives them some insurance if Embiid can't play right away. And Joel Embiid playing center also leaves them some room for a certain SF some come play at home if they did manage to convince him.
Aaron Gordon
