Player | Ht | Wt | Pos | Team | Age

Andrew Wiggins

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

With a ball dominant point guard and a trigger happy wing, I don't think they'd get the most out of Jabari Parker. Wiggins' best asset right now is his athleticism. This pick will allow Kyrie to get out in transition more often. If Waiters weren't already there, or if they're able to find a trading partner for him, I think putting the Dukies together would give them a better chance of winning right now.
Jabari Parker

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

They have a grand total of zero consistent capable scorers. This really should be the only direction that Milwaukee looks in.
Joel Embiid

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

They waited for Noel for a whole year. They're still not a playoff team. Wait on Embid, get great value at 10, and call it a successful lottery
Dante Exum

  4. Orlando | Dante Exum | 6-6 | 196 | PG/SG | Australia | 19

I can't wait to see this guy play. Orlando is starting to build a team with nice young talent
Noah Vonleh

  5. Utah | Noah Vonleh | 6-9 | 247 | PF | Indiana | 18

The stretch 4 has become a potent position in todays game. They have some young talent down low. This is a pick that makes sense for them.
Aaron Gordon

  6. *Boston | Aaron Gordon | 6-9 | 220 | PF | Arizona | 18

He just seems like a Danny Ainge kind of player. Defense, energy and athleticsm have always been important attributes to him. Offense is much easier to develop than attitude.
Marcus Smart

  7. LA Lakers | Marcus Smart | 6-3 | 227 | PG | Oklahoma State | 20

Kobe has a rep for being tough on rookies because they usually don't understand how hard you have to work to become successful in the league. Smart's greatest asset is his passion and work ethic. I think this is a good direction for the Lakers and Kobe could actually be excited to play with him
Doug McDermott

  8. Sacramento | Doug McDermott | 6-7 | 220 | SF | Creighton | 22

Even if they keep Rudy Gay, this is a great pick for them. They're creating lots of space for Cousins to create. I think McDermott could have success on most teams based on the number of ways he can score the ball. He's a much different player than Morrison and Reddick coming out of college and doesn't deserve those comparisons just because he's a white shooter.
Nik Stauskas

  9. *Charlotte | Nik Stauskas | 6-6 | 207 | SG | Michigan | 20

I can't find a better pick for Charlotte than this one. They've gotten better with the addition of Al Jefferson. Like Sacramento's pick, when your best player plays in the post, you need shooters around him. Stauskus is more than just a shooter and I can see him having a smooth transition into the league based on the number of things he can do to contribute to his team's success.
Julius Randle

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

Even if there were not foot problem, I could see Randle falling to this spot anyhow as the 2 PF's that went before him fit their respective rosters better. With that being said, this pick would become a huge steal for Philly and give Randle a chance to win ROY this year.
James Young

  11. *Chicago | James Young | 6-6 | 215 | SG | Kentucky | 18

I think Young is underrated. He's got a great stroke, great athleticism and length. He seems like the prototypical contemporary wing. He should be able to find minutes right away and creates a nice pairing with Gallo on the wing (assuming he's healthy)
Elfrid Payton

  12. *Philadelphia | Elfrid Payton | 6-4 | 185 | PG | Louisiana Lafayette | 20

I haven't seen Payton go here in any mock drafts. With this pick, they have a nice 3 guard rotation for the future as well as a nice 3 SF/PF rotation too. Add in their big man and they're 7 deep. If they can get a nice asset in return for Afflalo, Orlando isn't too far away from returning to the playoffs in a weak Eastern Conference. If you don't like this pick, I think you'll be hard pressed to find a better player and a better fit at this point
Adreian Payne

  13. *Minnesota | Adreian Payne | 6-10 | 240 | PF | Michigan St. | 23

I always classified Payne as a lottery pick. With Love on his way out, this pick fills a necessary void.
Dario Saric

  14. *Phoenix | Dario Saric | 6-10 | 225 | SF/PF | Croatia | 20

So he's just signed a 3 year contract in Europe. Phoenix has 3 first round picks. They've said they won't use all of them, but drafting and stashing Saric keeps them talented for the future and allows them to use both picks if they'd like later in the first round.
Rodney Hood

  15. *Atlanta | Rodney Hood | 6-8 | 208 | SF | Duke | 21

Why would Atlanta move Horford back to the 4 when Millsap proved his worth there this year. Millsap is definitely not a 3. Adding another shooter allows Teague to run pick and roll with Horford or Millsap a million times per game with Korver on one wing and Hood on the other
Shabazz Napier

  16. *Denver | Shabazz Napier | 6-0 | 175 | PG | UConn | 23

After watching him dominante the tournament this year, I wondered why it took so long for Napier to move up the boards. I've had Napier in this spot for a month now and it just so happens that Chicago has recently professed their love for him. Great pick.
TJ Warren

  17. *Boston | TJ Warren | 6-8 | 220 | SF | NC State | 20

He is the anti-Aaron Gordon. With multiple picks in the first rounds, its nice to go in multiple directions
Gary Harris

  18. *Phoenix | Gary Harris | 6-4 | 205 | SG | Michigan St. | 19

There is always someone every year that is a projected in the lottery and ends up taking a minor nose dive. He's not 6-4 and isn't a great shooter. The guards that went before him will be able to help their respective teams more than Harris. Denver seems to be a sexy destination for Harris, but I like Young's pro game a lot more.
PJ Hairston

  19. *Denver | PJ Hairston | 6-5 | 228 | SG | USA | 21

They definitely need another shooter. Thibs can coach anyone. Nuff said.
Zach LaVine

  20. Toronto | Zach LaVine | 6-6 | 180 | PG/SG | UCLA | 19

They could lose Kyle Lowry, but I don't see them passing on this kind of talent if he's available. Drafting homegrown Ennis doesn't improve their basketball team. At this point, LaVine is the most talented player available.
Jusuf Nurkic

  21. *Oklahoma Cty | Jusuf Nurkic | 6-11 | 280 | C | Bosnia & Herzegovina | 19

So what if this kid isn't ready to play yet. They have time to wait as OKC's top talent is still there. This isn't a bad plan though for when they are ready to say bye bye to Shaqtin a fool champ
Tyler Ennis

  22. Memphis | Tyler Ennis | 6-2 | 180 | PG | Syracuse | 19

I know he's been invited to the green room, but i just don't see Tyler Ennis with top tier pg potential to his game. However, he would be a great fit off the bench for Memphis.
Kyle Anderson

  23. *Utah | Kyle Anderson | 6-9 | 230 | SF | UCLA | 20

They've never really been a run and gun team. They still aren't. If you focus on Anderson's pros, as opposed to his cons, this is a good fit for both teams
Clint Capela

  24. *Miami | Clint Capela | 6-11 | 222 | PF/C | Switzerland | 20

For some reason, I can just see Michael Jordan liking a kid like this. He reminds me of some of the players that he's busted on in the past.
Glenn Robinson III

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

I think they'll lose Parsons. Actually, now that I think about it, these 2 players have similar skill sets. He could be a good fit here.
Jordan Clarkson

  26. Charlotte | Jordan Clarkson | 6-4 | 186 | PG/SG | Missouri | 22

Gosh they need help at the pg. If he's gone, it could be Dinwiddie.
KJ McDaniels

  27. *Phoenix | KJ McDaniels | 6-6 | 196 | SF | Clemson | 21

Pretty underrated player at this point in the draft. It seems like his workouts have been good enough to push him into the first round. He seems like a Phoenix kind of guy
Bogdan Bogdanovic

  28. LA Clippers | Bogdan Bogdanovic | 6-6 | 205 | SG | Serbia | 21

Lights out shooter. With Paul and Griffin here long term, this is a good fit for both.
Jordan Adams

  29. Oklahoma Cty | Jordan Adams | 6-5 | 209 | SG | UCLA | 20

Mitch McGary

  30. San Antonio | Mitch McGary | 6-10 | 266 | C | Michigan | 22

The guys that run the show for SAS, never mess up the draft. Once again, they're able to find lottery talent at the end of the first round. What a freaking surprise :)
Spencer Dinwiddie

  31. Milwaukee | Spencer Dinwiddie | 6-6 | 205 | PG/SG | Colorado | 21

Cleanthony Early

  32. *Philadelphia | Cleanthony Early | 6-7 | 210 | SF/PF | Wichita State | 23

Jerami Grant

  33. *Cleveland | Jerami Grant | 6-8 | 214 | SF | Syracuse | 20

They're always looking for more talent coming off the bench. Seems like good value here for OKC.
Walter Tavares

  34. *New York | Walter Tavares | 7-3 | 260 | C | Spain | 22

Thanasis Antetokounmpo

  35. *Memphis | Thanasis Antetokounmpo | 6-6 | 205 | SF | Greece | 22

Jarnell Stokes

  36. *Milwaukee | Jarnell Stokes | 6-8 | 260 | PF | Tennessee | 20

Patric Young

  37. *Toronto | Patric Young | 6-10 | 247 | PF/C | Florida | 22

Joe Harris

  38. Detroit | Joe Harris | 6-6 | 215 | SG/SF | Virginia | 22

DeAndre Daniels

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

Damien Inglis

  40. *Minnesota | Damien Inglis | 6-9 | 240 | SF/PF | France | 19

Vasilje Micic

  41. Denver | Vasilje Micic | 6-6 | 202 | PG | Serbia | 20

Khem Birch

  42. *Houston | Khem Birch | 6-9 | 209 | PF | UNLV | 21

CJ Wilcox

  43. Atlanta | CJ Wilcox | 6-5 | 201 | SG | Washington | 23

Artem Klimenko

  44. *Brooklyn | Artem Klimenko | 7-0 | 245 | C | Russia | 20

Nikola Jokic

  45. Charlotte | Nikola Jokic | 6-11 | 255 | PF/C | Serbia | 19

Semaj Christon

  46. *LA Lakers | Semaj Christon | 6-3 | 186 | PG | Xavier | 21

Nick Johnson

  47. *New Orleans | Nick Johnson | 6-3 | 198 | SG | Arizona | 21

Johnny O'Bryant

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

Dwight Powell

  49. Chicago | Dwight Powell | 6-11 | 235 | PF | Stanford | 23

Cristiano Felicio

  50. Phoenix | Cristiano Felicio | 6-10 | 250 | PF/C | Brazil | 22

LaQuinton Ross

  51. *New York | LaQuinton Ross | 6-8 | 240 | SF | Ohio State | 21
