Player | Ht | Wt | Pos | Team | Age

Nerlens Noel

  1. Cleveland | Nerlens Noel | 6-11 | 206 | PF/C | Kentucky | 20

People are coming around and realizing that despite the injury, Noel is not the best player in this draft. But he does have a very unique skillset. There have been a lot of lazy comparisons thrown around including Mutombo and even Bill Russell. Noel simply does not have the size of these historic centers. That being said he has elite agility, shot blocking and instincts for someone of his size. While he may not be the best player, he brings things to the table that few others can. Plus, it's sometimes good just to go with someone who everyone is high on just because then you can rest assured that the player has trade value. And for the record, I'm not going with this pick because of Phoenix's beloved medical staff. Just happens that he falls to them.
Victor Oladipo

  2. *Orlando | Victor Oladipo | 6-4 | 213 | SG/SF | Indiana | 22

Amongst any scout would say that Oladipo would be BPA at this point. Plus, he does fit a need. The Pelicans guards are not good defenders. And it may be a good investment to deal Gordon as he is disgruntled and never plays. Oladipo would give them a tenacious SG to help cover up Vasquez's defensive woes. They can target another PG down the road.
Anthony Bennett

  3. Washington | Anthony Bennett | 6-7 | 240 | SF/PF | UNLV | 21

The Bobcats could go several different ways here. But unless McLemore falls to 4, Bennett is the best bet for Charlotte. In the end they need scoring. Bennet will give them an inside-out option who will hopefully take the ball our of Byron Mullens hands.
Ben McLemore

  4. Charlotte | Ben McLemore | 6-5 | 190 | SG | Kansas | 21

There are legitimate question marks about McLemore's competitiveness. But even if he doesn't reach his potential, his shooting and defense will allow him to be a starter in the NBA. Ironically enough, I see his floor being similar to that of Aaron Afflalo- the person he would theoretically be replacing. Afflalo brings a veteran presence that any young team desperately needs, however, the Magic would be best served using Affalo to get an established PG such as Eric Bledsoe. Trey Burke is a possibility here, but it would be a stretch at the 2nd spot.
Alex Len

  5. Phoenix | Alex Len | 7-1 | 255 | C | Maryland | 21

Otto Porter

  6. *New Orleans | Otto Porter | 6-9 | 200 | SF | Georgetown | 21

Noel could be a pick here as well. But Washington is ready to make the playoffs, and their front court is shored up for the short-term. What they are still missing is a SF, and Porter is someone who can contribute right away as a starting 3. He will defend and hit open shots when they come to him. Poter will be with the Wizards for a while.
CJ McCollum

  7. *Sacramento | CJ McCollum | 6-3 | 197 | PG/SG | Lehigh | 22

Trey Burke

  8. Detroit | Trey Burke | 6-1 | 190 | PG | Michigan | 21

Kings need a PG and a leader. Burke sounds like he's a fit. He will help moderate the ethos that sometimes takes over the Sactown locker room while providing an instant upgrade for Thomas.
Kentavious Caldwell-Pope

  9. *Utah | Kentavious Caldwell-Pope | 6-6 | 205 | SG | Georgia | 21

Fits a need and does it in a comprehensive way. Good size, good handles, good shot, good athleticism.
Michael Carter-Williams

  10. *Portland | Michael Carter-Williams | 6-6 | 185 | PG | Syracuse | 22

Zeller is BPA, but doesn't fit a need necessarily. MCW is a need. He is a large, long guard who can focus on defense and distribution. His shot is a work in progress that can hopefully develop within the next couple of seasons.
Cody Zeller

  11. *Philadelphia | Cody Zeller | 7-0 | 230 | PF/C | Indiana | 21

If Zeller falls this far then the Wolves are kinda obligated to pick him up. Even though the Wolves would prefer a true center- Zeller gives them an offensive weapon who can run with Rubio. It will be intersting to see how Love and Zeller gel togeher on the court as they do similar things.
Kelly Olynyk

  12. *Oklahoma Cty | Kelly Olynyk | 7-0 | 234 | C | Gonzaga | 23

Sergey Karasev

  13. *Boston | Sergey Karasev | 6-7 | 197 | SG/SF | Russia | 20

Steven Adams

  14. *Minnesota | Steven Adams | 7-0 | 255 | C | Pittsburgh | 20

Shane Larkin

  15. Milwaukee | Shane Larkin | 5-11 | 171 | PG | Miami | 21

Shabazz Muhammad

  16. *Atlanta | Shabazz Muhammad | 6-6 | 225 | SF | UCLA | 21

Dennis Schroeder

  17. Atlanta | Dennis Schroeder | 6-2 | 168 | PG | Germany | 20

Lucas Nogueira

  18. *Dallas | Lucas Nogueira | 7-0 | 220 | PF/C | Brazil | 21

Tony Snell

  19. *Cleveland | Tony Snell | 6-7 | 198 | SG/SF | New Mexico | 22

Mason Plumlee

  20. Chicago | Mason Plumlee | 6-11 | 238 | PF | Duke | 24

Giannis Adetokoubo

  21. *Minnesota | Giannis Adetokoubo | 6-10 | 205 | SF | Greece | 19
