Player | Ht | Wt | Pos | Team | Age

Nerlens Noel

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

Despite Noel's ACL Tear, he holds the top spot in this class. The Bobcats need a big guy that is a game changer and Noel is as close to that as you'll get in this draft.
Ben McLemore

  2. *Orlando | Ben McLemore | 6-5 | 190 | SG | Kansas | 21

Orlando is just looking for talent. After trading J.J. Redick at the trade deadline, they could use an off ball guard to score for them.
Alex Len

  3. Washington | Alex Len | 7-1 | 255 | C | Maryland | 21

Some what of a surprise pick, I think Alex Len can be something special in the NBA. He has the size and is just touching his potential. John Wall and Brad Beal would love to have a young big man to play with.
Cody Zeller

  4. Charlotte | Cody Zeller | 7-0 | 230 | PF/C | Indiana | 21

I just don't know about Cody Zeller. Everything you hear makes you want to beleive his as good as people say but when I watch him, he just doesn't have the physical side of being a NBA big man. I do like him to play with his brother Tyler in Cleveland, though.
Shabazz Muhammad

  5. Phoenix | Shabazz Muhammad | 6-6 | 225 | SF | UCLA | 21

The once contender for the #1 pick has slipped in mocks lately. His attitude when Larry Drew III made the game winning shot was not promising but at least he wanted the game winning shot. Has all the talent but something feels missing.
Marcus Smart

  6. *New Orleans | Marcus Smart | 6-3 | 227 | PG | Oklahoma State | 20

Marcus Smart doesn't fall anymore than this by default. The Kings need a leader and Smart is exactly that. He would also give them a legit starting PG and can make Tyreke Evans and the rest of the Kings crew better.
Anthony Bennett

  7. *Sacramento | Anthony Bennett | 6-7 | 240 | SF/PF | UNLV | 21

Anthony Bennett is a wild card right now for me. I haven't seen enough of him to come with a conclusion, but I know the Pelicans would love to have a beast that can play down low and on the wing
Victor Oladipo

  8. Detroit | Victor Oladipo | 6-4 | 213 | SG/SF | Indiana | 22

I project Victor Oladipo has a SG in the NBA. He is an explosive player and a defensive lockdown threat. Needs to improve shot but Minnesota needs a 2 guard.
Otto Porter

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

Otto Porter shouldn't fall this far at all but team needs are hurting him. Detroit needs a Small Forward bad and one that can do a little bit of everything. That basically describes Otto Porter
Trey Burke

  10. *Portland | Trey Burke | 6-1 | 190 | PG | Michigan | 21

Oklahoma City makes a bit of a splash here in selecting PG Trey Burke. Some say OKC already has a PG named Russell Westbrook, but he really is a SG. Moving him there helps Russell and the team while Burke can help run the show.
Mason Plumlee

  11. *Philadelphia | Mason Plumlee | 6-11 | 238 | PF | Duke | 24

After coach Doug Collin's rant about his players not trying hard enough, I slotted him a energy big man they could use. Plumlee can play both PF and C, backing up either Moultrie or Hawes off the bench. This will be even more useful if they let Bynum walk.
Willie Cauley-Stein

  12. *Oklahoma Cty | Willie Cauley-Stein | 7-0 | 240 | C | Kentucky | 21

Willie Cauley-Stein has so much potential, it's almost laughable. He has elite athleticism for his size and the size. Noel being out will probably help him in the long run. Dallas could use him because it's unlikely they will re-sign Chris Kaman.
Glenn Robinson III

  13. *Boston | Glenn Robinson III | 6-7 | 211 | SF | Michigan | 20

I give Phoenix GRIII here believing that Shabazz can play SG in the pros. Glenn Robinson has enormous ability that hasn't been put together yet. He needs to establish himself early in games to be effective.
Kentavious Caldwell-Pope

  14. *Minnesota | Kentavious Caldwell-Pope | 6-6 | 205 | SG | Georgia | 21

Charlotte got their future stud at #1 and is getting a very good complimentary player to Kemba Walker here. Caldwell-Pope is a good shooter that plays within himself. He is a hot and cold player but might be able to put it all together with the Bobcats
Michael Carter-Williams

  15. Milwaukee | Michael Carter-Williams | 6-6 | 185 | PG | Syracuse | 22

I'm personally not a fan of Michael Carter-Williams. I don't think his game translates to the NBA quite yet. He has great size for a PG and can make plays, though. Milwaukee might lose both Brandon Jennings and Monta Ellis so MCW is great value here
Kelly Olynyk

  16. *Atlanta | Kelly Olynyk | 7-0 | 234 | C | Gonzaga | 23

Kelly Olynyk will be nothing more than a hustle/role player in the NBA but he could be a very good one. Choosing Olynyk here allows Atlanta to move Al Horford down to the 4, that be if they get rid of Josh Smith because Smith can not play the 3 effectively.
Jamaal Franklin

  17. Atlanta | Jamaal Franklin | 6-5 | 191 | SG/SF | San Diego St. | 23

Jamaal Franklin is all over the place in mock drafts. I think he is a versitile player that is quite like SDS alum Kawhi Leonard. He can rebound, shoot, play defense. Franklin could be an eventual replacement to Paul Pierce, also.
CJ McCollum

  18. *Dallas | CJ McCollum | 6-3 | 197 | PG/SG | Lehigh | 22

I can't believe I have CJ McCollum going this far down. He really is a great basketball player but lack of needs for a PG pushes him down. He is out for the year but scouts know what he is about. Utah needs a smart PG.
Archie Goodwin

  19. *Cleveland | Archie Goodwin | 6-5 | 189 | SG | Kentucky | 20

Archie Goodwin is really talented, he really is. He just needs to mature a little more. Utah could use a guard off the bench and Goodwin could use a place where he doesn't have to start and produce right off the bat.
James McAdoo

  20. Chicago | James McAdoo | 6-9 | 230 | PF | North Carolina | 21

How far James McAdoo has fallen. I was never a huge fan of the Tar Heel and this year should have shown why. He doesn't have an offensive game and can check out on defense. He does have potential though, and I like him to play the 3 spot next to Horford and Olynyk in the front court.
Isaiah Austin

  21. *Minnesota | Isaiah Austin | 7-1 | 220 | PF/C | Baylor | 20

I'm not a fan of 7 footers who can't physically dominate a game inside but Austin might be the exception. He can really play on the outside but can't defend out there. He is sort of a round peg in a square hole but I like Chicago as a destination to replace Boozer and give them some shooters for D-Rose.
Tony Mitchell

  22. Brooklyn | Tony Mitchell | 6-9 | 236 | SF/PF | North Texas | 22

Tony Mitchell is such a confusing player. He should just absolutely DOMINATE at North Texas but he just doesn't. Hasn't made up his mind for what position to play but I like the Nets here so he can give either Gerald Wallace or Kris Humphries a breather depending on matchups.
Isaiah Canaan

  23. Indiana | Isaiah Canaan | 6-0 | 190 | PG | Murray St. | 23

The Pacers could use some extra help at PG and Isaiah Canaan could certainly help. He is a bulldozer down the lane and could easily compliment George Hill and could back him up if DJ Augustin leaves via free agency
Nate Wolters

  24. New York | Nate Wolters | 6-5 | 196 | PG | South Dakota St. | 23

Andre Miller is a great veteran player to have but he is getting up there in years. Nate Wolters is the kind of player that could be groomed for a year to back up Ty Lawson and then do a more than capable job of it. Lighting it up at South Dakota State.
Dario Saric

  25. LA Clippers | Dario Saric | 6-10 | 225 | SF/PF | Croatia | 20

Honestly, I don't know much about Dario Saric. I do know though, New York has enough depth where they could wait for Saric to come over from overseas to play and might pay off in the future.
Rudy Gobert

  26. *Oklahoma Cty | Rudy Gobert | 7-2 | 238 | C | France | 22

Gobert has a huge wingspan (7'9) and at 7-1, he is a giant. Minnesota could use a true center to help Kevin Love and Gobert has potential.. He might stay in France for a couple years but they have done this before with Ricky Rubio
Jeff Withey

  27. Denver | Jeff Withey | 7-0 | 222 | C | Kansas | 24

The Clippers really lack frontcourt depth. Jeff Withey is a smart player and a good leader. While DeAndre Jordan is out, Withey can help lead the 2nd unit to do their job and really help out the contender
Alex Poythress

  28. San Antonio | Alex Poythress | 6-8 | 239 | PF | Kentucky | 20

Alex Poythress has fallen this far to fault of his own. He isn't playing hard at Kentucky and is just riding the momentum from last years team to the NBA. While he is good value here, he will have to sit behind the likes of Alonzo Gee which could be a good thing for him
Allen Crabbe

  29. *Phoenix | Allen Crabbe | 6-6 | 197 | SG | California | 22

Oklahoma City would be getting a steal here with Allen Crabbe. He leads the Pac 12 in scoring and is quite good at it. He is a natural 2 guard that can come off the bench and provide instant offense for Russell Westbrook or Trey Burke.
Lucas Nogueira

  30. *Golden St. | Lucas Nogueira | 7-0 | 220 | PF/C | Brazil | 22

Lucas "BeBe" Nogueira is a crazy prospect. He has great size with long arms but is afraid of contact. He has athleticism and natural shot blocking ability. He is a typical late 1st round Spurs pick because they can stash him away in Brazil and let him develop and help themselves for the future.
Doug McDermott

  31. *Cleveland | Doug McDermott | 6-7 | 220 | SF | Creighton | 22

Tim Hardaway Jr

  32. *Oklahoma Cty | Tim Hardaway Jr | 6-6 | 200 | SG | Michigan | 22

Trevor Mbakwe

  33. Cleveland | Trevor Mbakwe | 6-8 | 236 | PF/C | Minnesota | 25

Lorenzo Brown

  34. *Houston | Lorenzo Brown | 6-5 | 189 | PG/SG | NC State | 23

Steven Adams

  35. *Philadelphia | Steven Adams | 7-0 | 255 | C | Pittsburgh | 21

Robert Covington

  36. Sacramento | Robert Covington | 6-7 | 209 | SF | Tennessee State | 23

Michael Snaer

  37. Detroit | Michael Snaer | 6-5 | 200 | SG | Florida St. | 24

AJ Hammons

  38. *Milwaukee | AJ Hammons | 7-0 | 260 | C | Purdue | 21

Kenny Kadji

  39. *Portland | Kenny Kadji | 6-10 | 242 | PF/C | Miami | 26

DeShaun Thomas

  40. Portland | DeShaun Thomas | 6-6 | 220 | SF/PF | Ohio State | 22

Gorgui Dieng

  41. *Memphis | Gorgui Dieng | 6-11 | 230 | C | Louisville | 24

Myck Kabongo

  42. *New Orleans | Myck Kabongo | 6-2 | 180 | PG | Texas | 22

LeBryan Nash

  43. *Dallas | LeBryan Nash | 6-7 | 235 | SF/PF | Oklahoma State | 22

Mike Muscala

  44. *Atlanta | Mike Muscala | 6-11 | 230 | PF/C | Bucknell | 23

Brandon Paul

  45. *Portland | Brandon Paul | 6-4 | 200 | SG | Illinois | 23

Phil Pressey

  46. Utah | Phil Pressey | 5-11 | 177 | PG | Missouri | 23

CJ Wilcox

  47. *Denver | CJ Wilcox | 6-5 | 201 | SG | Washington | 23

CJ Leslie

  48. LA Lakers | CJ Leslie | 6-9 | 209 | SF/PF | NC State | 23

Sean Kilpatrick

  49. Chicago | Sean Kilpatrick | 6-4 | 220 | SG | Cincinnati | 24

Adonis Thomas

  50. *Miami | Adonis Thomas | 6-6 | 232 | SF | Memphis | 21

Gary Harris

  51. *Orlando | Gary Harris | 6-4 | 205 | SG | Michigan St. | 19

Alex Oriakhi

  52. *Minnesota | Alex Oriakhi | 6-9 | 255 | PF/C | Missouri | 24

CJ Fair

  53. Indiana | CJ Fair | 6-8 | 218 | SF | Syracuse | 22

Reggie Bullock

  54. *Philadelphia | Reggie Bullock | 6-7 | 200 | SG/SF | North Carolina | 23

Kyle Anderson

  55. Memphis | Kyle Anderson | 6-9 | 230 | SF | UCLA | 20

Chris Obekpa

  56. *Detroit | Chris Obekpa | 6-9 | 240 | C | St. Johns | 20

Rodney Williams

  57. *Phoenix | Rodney Williams | 6-7 | 200 | SF | Minnesota | 23

Joel James

  58. San Antonio | Joel James | 6-10 | 280 | C | North Carolina | 20

Andre Roberson

  59. *Minnesota | Andre Roberson | 6-7 | 206 | SF/PF | Colorado | 22

Ray McCallum

  60. *Memphis | Ray McCallum | 6-1 | 190 | PG | Detroit | 23
