Player | Ht | Wt | Pos | Team | Age

Nerlens Noel

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

If Cleveland stays at #1, I think they will pick Noel. He has tremendous upside, and can be an elite defender for many years. However, I don't think he's the best player. His offense in the half-court is non-existant, and has poor post moves. With Irving in place, Cavs aren't in need of a franchise player, and can settle for more of a role player. Noel could anchor the Cav's defense. I still think there's chance a trade happens. *Comparison: Larry Sanders
Victor Oladipo

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

*TRADE* Minnesota trades Derrick Williams for the #3 pick from Washington. The T'Wolves covet Oladipo, who is a super-athletic SG that can causes havoc on defense and slash and attack the basket. His great work ethic is a great foundation to build off, and could really develop into a good player. Oladipo needs develop a three-point shot. *Comparison: Dwyane Wade
Otto Porter

  3. Washington | Otto Porter | 6-9 | 200 | SF | Georgetown | 21

New Orleans might be shocked to see Porter available, but the Pelicans can't pass him up, he's a great fit and value. Porter has the characterisitcs of a role player, does everything well, nothing great. Unselfish, works hard, good attitude. However, has the talent, ability and has shown he could be an all-star caliber player. *Comparison: Nic Batum
Ben McLemore

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

Great shooter that is very explosive. Orlando biggest need a PG for the long term, and the Magic could go with Trey Burke. However, McLemore has a much higher upside, and could be an elite player down the line. The biggest knock on McLemore is he can be a bit passive. *Comparison: Jason Richardson
Cody Zeller

  5. Phoenix | Cody Zeller | 7-0 | 230 | PF/C | Indiana | 21

*TRADE* With Zeller available, Phoenix trade Marcin Gortat and the #30 pick. for Portland's #10 pick. Phoenix adds Zeller to their foundation for the future. Zeller is a very skilled, and smart big-man, who runs the floor very well. Can play with his back to the basket, and face-up also. Zeller is one of those players who will be a very reliable player who you can depend on. *Comparison: LaMarcus Aldridge
Alex Len

  6. *New Orleans | Alex Len | 7-1 | 255 | C | Maryland | 21

Legit big guy, and very athletic for his size also. Len seems to be a risk/reward prospect, a lot of potential but despite that he has never dominated in college like he should. Charlotte has gotten very little production from their front-court, and will look to bolster their front-court with Len. Could be a low-end double-double guy. *Comparison: Jonas Valancunias
CJ McCollum

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

With Oladipo and McLemore, the Suns take McCollum who might end up the best scorer in this draft. He's a good shooter, with great all around skills on offense, however is more of a score first PG that a facilitator. *Comparison: Steph Curry
Trey Burke

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

It's been a looooong time since Sacramento has had a legit PG. Burke is a true PG, leadership, facilitating, and clutch shots. He may not be a franchise player, but he's got a winning attitude and give the King's a winning mentality. Burke might be able to turn the tide in Sacramento, and give the Kings a leader. Comparison: Mike Conley
Kentavious Caldwell-Pope

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

The 76ers would love a big man here, but the top bigs are gone at this point. Philly settles for the BPA in Caldwell-Pope, who is a good fit with Holiday and Turner. KCP is a very good scorer and shooter, that managed to score 18 ppg while being double teamed all year long. *Comparison: JR Smith
Anthony Bennett

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

Bennett has top 5 talent, but could be the odd man out and slip a bit. Like last year's draft with taking Drummond who slipped,Pistons have other needs, but Bennett is too talented to pass up here. Physical, explosive, undersized PF. Can Bennett overcome his lack of height? Most tweener forwards don't have a lot of success in the NBA. *Comparison: Paul Milsap
Steven Adams

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

Minnesota has options here, after securing their guy in Oladipo. T'Wolves swing for the fences and go for the high risk/reward Steven Adams. Adams has a lot upside but is very raw, legit 7 footer, who is very long and athletic. Has shown flashes of a low-post game, but still has lot of room for improvement. *Comparison: Andrew Bogut
Sergey Karasev

  12. *Oklahoma Cty | Sergey Karasev | 6-7 | 197 | SG/SF | Russia | 20

Another international man of mystery. Has a lot skill on offense, good shooter and ball-handler and could be lottery talent. May not see the NBA right away. but could be a great value pick down the line for Cleveland. *Comparison: Mike Miller
Dennis Schroeder

  13. *Boston | Dennis Schroeder | 6-2 | 168 | PG | Germany | 20

Rumor has it Schroeder has a promise in the lotto. Dallas struggled with PG last season, and could be interested in Schroeder. He's an international product, who has become a favorite on this site. Schroeder is as quick as a hiccup, can blow by defenders and is a ball-hawk on defense, and his 3 point shot is developing. *Comparison: Sebastian Telfair
Michael Carter-Williams

  14. *Minnesota | Michael Carter-Williams | 6-6 | 185 | PG | Syracuse | 22

Bucks could use a guard with Jennings, Ellis, and Reddick's futures all up in the air this summer. MCW is a great play-maker, but not a great athlete and weak 3 point shooter. *Comparison: Shaun Livingston
Giannis Adetokoubo

  15. Milwaukee | Giannis Adetokoubo | 6-10 | 205 | SF | Greece | 19

Another international enigma. Very athletic, and long, which gets a lot of people going. Has a lot of upside, but very raw. I doubt he's ready to play for another year or two, might be a draft and stache.
Kelly Olynyk

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

Olynyk isn't a dominate Center, but is highly skilled and an effective offensive player. Utah could add depth to their front-court and get potential lotto player.
Shabazz Muhammad

  17. Atlanta | Shabazz Muhammad | 6-6 | 225 | SF | UCLA | 21

Muhammad is this year's prospect who ultra talented but has red-flags drop him out of the lotto. The Celtics are rebuilding while still trying to be competitive. Muhammad can come in and be a much need scorer for Boston, and could excel spotting up shooting 3's with Rondo. *Comparison: Michael Redd
Gorgui Dieng

  18. *Dallas | Gorgui Dieng | 6-11 | 230 | C | Louisville | 24

Long, proven shot blocker, and solid rebounder, along with a descent jumper to boot. No low-post game to speak of. Only a Junior but already 23, upside is limited. Bulls take Dieng to be a solid defensive back-up center. *Comparison: Tiago Splitter
Reggie Bullock

  19. *Cleveland | Reggie Bullock | 6-7 | 200 | SG/SF | North Carolina | 23

Reminds me of another Tar-Heel, Danny Greene.
Tim Hardaway Jr

  20. Chicago | Tim Hardaway Jr | 6-6 | 200 | SG | Michigan | 22

NBA pedigree, can heat up and be effective from 3, and can handle the ball fairly well. Good size for a SG, Clippers need help with wing players.
Allen Crabbe

  21. *Minnesota | Allen Crabbe | 6-6 | 197 | SG | California | 22

Lucas Nogueira

  22. Brooklyn | Lucas Nogueira | 7-0 | 220 | PF/C | Brazil | 22

Tony Snell

  23. Indiana | Tony Snell | 6-7 | 198 | SG/SF | New Mexico | 22

A very smooth and skilled all-around player. Snell has a great jumper and can take defenders off the dribble and pass very well, also a very good on ball defender. Biggest knock is he can be a bit passive, and doesn't try to get his shot. *Comparison: Joe Johnson
Shane Larkin

  24. New York | Shane Larkin | 5-11 | 171 | PG | Miami | 21

Very athletic PG with great leadership. Took a Miami squad to their greatest season ever. Has good skills, can shoot very well, but his small frame could be an issue. Jazz need a PG. *Comparison: DJ Augustin
Ricardo Ledo

  25. LA Clippers | Ricardo Ledo | 6-6 | 197 | SG | Providence | 21

Mason Plumlee

  26. *Oklahoma Cty | Mason Plumlee | 6-11 | 238 | PF | Duke | 24

Thunder could look to bolster their front-court with Plumlee, who is a solid big, who will play hard and rebound for you. He's pretty athletic for a guy his size. Plumlee will be ready to play from the star. *Comparison: Nick Collison
Jamaal Franklin

  27. Denver | Jamaal Franklin | 6-5 | 191 | SG/SF | San Diego St. | 23

Was a do all player at San Diego St, lead team in Points, Rebounds, and Asists. Not much of a shooter, but can make plays and has great athletic abilities.
Erick Green

  28. San Antonio | Erick Green | 6-3 | 180 | PG/SG | Virginia Tech | 23

Rudy Gobert

  29. *Phoenix | Rudy Gobert | 7-2 | 238 | C | France | 22

The measurements on this guy were crazy. No doubt someone will fall in love with his potential in size. Not sure what kind of player he could be, but with size and speed, could at least provide shot blocking and rebounding. *Comparison: Javelle McGee
Glen Rice Jr.

  30. *Golden St. | Glen Rice Jr. | 6-6 | 211 | SG | USA | 23

Strong athletic SG, who has a solid jumper and attacks the basket fairly well. Has NBA pedigree and a lot upside.
Mike Muscala

  31. *Cleveland | Mike Muscala | 6-11 | 230 | PF/C | Bucknell | 23

Jeff Withey

  32. *Oklahoma Cty | Jeff Withey | 7-0 | 222 | C | Kansas | 24

Tony Mitchell

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

Athletic, tweener Forwards seem to be a dime a doze today. Has a lot upside, once considered a lotto talent. Word is New York is very interested in taking Mitchell. *Comparison: Thomas Robinson
Isaiah Canaan

  34. *Houston | Isaiah Canaan | 6-0 | 190 | PG | Murray St. | 23

Nate Wolters

  35. *Philadelphia | Nate Wolters | 6-5 | 196 | PG | South Dakota St. | 23

Pierre Jackson

  36. Sacramento | Pierre Jackson | 5-10 | 176 | PG | Baylor | 22

Colton Iverson

  37. Detroit | Colton Iverson | 7-0 | 263 | PF/C | Colorado St. | 25
