Player | Ht | Wt | Pos | Team | Age

Nerlens Noel

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

I know there has been talk around Cleveland taking Len #1 overall but I can't see him going 1. They might trade down to get him which I think would be a good deal for them but if they keep the pick Noel is the best option in this draft. TT's offense is coming around so they can work together at the 4 and 5. This also allows them to trade Verejao at next years trade deadline once Noel is healthy for another solid piece.
Ben McLemore

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

They need to start the rebuilding phase and Mclemore is a solid player to pair with Vucevic who showed a lot of promise last year. By no means will McLemore get them in the playoffs so you can expect them to have another top 5 pick next year which will get them smart, wiggins, randle, parker, or harrison.
Otto Porter

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

One of the safest picks in the draft and fills a need for Washington. Porter is a guy that does not need the ball in his hands to be effective. Putting him with Wall and Beal is a solid young core.
Victor Oladipo

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

Great defender with the potential to be a solid scorer in the NBA. I am not sold on Walker yet but putting him together with MKG sets you up for a great perimeter defensive team.
Anthony Bennett

  5. Phoenix | Anthony Bennett | 6-7 | 240 | SF/PF | UNLV | 21

Phoenix needs a lot of help. The SF position is a big need for them now and Bennett has the most potential at this point. They will be in the top 5 again next year to grab a great player to put with him.
Alex Len

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

I love the idea of putting Len alongside Davis. Great frontcourt for many years.
Trey Burke

  7. *Sacramento | Trey Burke | 6-1 | 190 | PG | Michigan | 21

Isiah Thomas is a decent PG but they can't have him playing with Evans. Not enough shots for everyone. They need a true PG to feed the ball into Cousins and hit the open jumper which Burke is more than capable of.
Michael Carter-Williams

  8. Detroit | Michael Carter-Williams | 6-6 | 185 | PG | Syracuse | 22

I like the idea of MCW and Knight playing together in the backcourt. Williams can cover the 2 with his size and he is a pass first PG which Knight is not. Knight will be more affective playing off the ball.
Kentavious Caldwell-Pope

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

KCP is a pure shooter which minny needs desperatly alongside Rubio. He will be a starter from day 1 for a team fighting for the playoffs if healthy.
Shabazz Muhammad

  10. *Portland | Shabazz Muhammad | 6-6 | 225 | SF | UCLA | 21

A lot of drafts have McCollum going hear but him and Lilliard don't seem like the best option. Muhammad should be playing SG and he would be a great offensive weapon for this team.
Cody Zeller

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

Bynum was an awful pickup for them and Hawes doesn't always play like a starting center. Zeller gives them the option to play both the 4 and 5 position with the potential to be an abover avg scorer with a good basketball IQ.
CJ McCollum

  12. *Oklahoma Cty | CJ McCollum | 6-3 | 197 | PG/SG | Lehigh | 22

Not sure if McCollum will drop this far but if he does OKC has to take a look at thim. I don't see Martin staying around too long so CJ, Lamb, and Jackson would give them a great PG,SG rotation off the bench. They can all score in bunches.
Mason Plumlee

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

Plumlee is a big bodie that can really run the floor. Not sure if he is the best fit for Dallas but they could use some help in the frontcourt.
Kelly Olynyk

  14. *Minnesota | Kelly Olynyk | 7-0 | 234 | C | Gonzaga | 23

Great piece to put with Favors and Kanter as he can play the 4 and 5. He won't start for them but will be a great big off the bench. I think Jefferson and Millsap are both gone.
Shane Larkin

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

Finally get a point gaurd that likes to pass. Ellis will be gone so Larkin and Jennings can share the backcourt.
Rudy Gobert

  16. *Atlanta | Rudy Gobert | 7-2 | 238 | C | France | 22

Gobert has crazy length which will be needed for Boston (if a trade for Jordan doesn't happen).
Giannis Adetokoubo

  17. Atlanta | Giannis Adetokoubo | 6-10 | 205 | SF | Greece | 19

Smith may be gone so why not replace him with a similar type player for 1/10 of the cost. Atlanta might have to start rebuilding.
Gorgui Dieng

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

I have wanted Horford to play the 4 for years and Dieng seems NBA ready and would allow him to do this.
Sergey Karasev

  19. *Cleveland | Sergey Karasev | 6-7 | 197 | SG/SF | Russia | 20

Cleveland seems high on Karasev and he fills a need for them.
Tim Hardaway Jr

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

Chicago needs a good SG that can knock down shots. Hardaway has good size for the 2 and is a great athlete to put alongside Rose.
Dennis Schroeder

  21. *Minnesota | Dennis Schroeder | 6-2 | 168 | PG | Germany | 20

Utah got a frontcourt rotation player in the lotery so now they can address another need which is the PG position. Schroeder has some questions surrounding him but he has good potential at the PG spot.
Lucas Nogueira

  22. Brooklyn | Lucas Nogueira | 7-0 | 220 | PF/C | Brazil | 21

They could use some more size to put with Lopez. If he pans out having 2 7 footers would sure be a benefit for a team in the east that has to go up against MIA.
Steven Adams

  23. Indiana | Steven Adams | 7-0 | 255 | C | Pittsburgh | 20

Good backup for Hibbert. Since Hibbert is manning the ship it gives Adams time to develop.
Tony Mitchell

  24. New York | Tony Mitchell | 6-9 | 236 | SF/PF | North Texas | 22

NY seems high on Mitchell and with Amare being the only decent PF on the team they need help here.
Allen Crabbe

  25. LA Clippers | Allen Crabbe | 6-6 | 197 | SG | California | 22

LA can always use another shooter with CP3 and BG on the floor.
Tony Snell

  26. *Oklahoma Cty | Tony Snell | 6-7 | 198 | SG/SF | New Mexico | 22

AK47 is getting old and Snell has potential to be a solid NBA player. i don't like the comparisons to Leanard because he doesn't have the same defensive instict but he is a good shooter to put with Rubio, Love, and KCP (9th pick).
Reggie Bullock

  27. Denver | Reggie Bullock | 6-7 | 200 | SG/SF | North Carolina | 23

Iggy might be gone so they could use some help and they seem to like shooters in Denver.
Nate Wolters

  28. San Antonio | Nate Wolters | 6-5 | 196 | PG | South Dakota St. | 23

As shown in the finals they need a solid backup PG. Wolters is the best option at this point.
Jeff Withey

  29. *Phoenix | Jeff Withey | 7-0 | 222 | C | Kansas | 24

Possible replacement for Perkins in a year or 2.
Ricardo Ledo

  30. *Golden St. | Ricardo Ledo | 6-6 | 197 | SG | Providence | 21

Phoenix needs help almost everywhere. Ledo is a solid SG that could give minutes off the bench.
Erick Green

  31. *Cleveland | Erick Green | 6-3 | 180 | PG/SG | Virginia Tech | 23

Glen Rice Jr.

  32. *Oklahoma Cty | Glen Rice Jr. | 6-6 | 211 | SG | USA | 23

I don't know if OKC will keep this pick but GR jr would be a good bench player.
Livio Jean-Charles

  33. Cleveland | Livio Jean-Charles | 6-9 | 217 | SF/PF | France | 20

Jamaal Franklin

  34. *Houston | Jamaal Franklin | 6-5 | 191 | SG/SF | San Diego St. | 23

CJ Leslie

  35. *Philadelphia | CJ Leslie | 6-9 | 209 | SF/PF | NC State | 23

James Southerland

  36. Sacramento | James Southerland | 6-8 | 221 | SF/PF | Syracuse | 24

Archie Goodwin

  37. Detroit | Archie Goodwin | 6-5 | 189 | SG | Kentucky | 19

Robert Covington

  38. *Milwaukee | Robert Covington | 6-7 | 209 | SF | Tennessee State | 23

DeShaun Thomas

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

Isaiah Canaan

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

James Ennis

  41. *Memphis | James Ennis | 6-7 | 200 | SG/SF | Long Beach State | 24

Michael Snaer

  42. *New Orleans | Michael Snaer | 6-5 | 200 | SG | Florida St. | 24

Alex Abrines

  43. *Dallas | Alex Abrines | 6-6 | 190 | SG | Spain | 20

Lorenzo Brown

  44. *Atlanta | Lorenzo Brown | 6-5 | 189 | PG/SG | NC State | 23

Bojan Dubljevic

  45. *Portland | Bojan Dubljevic | 6-9 | 235 | PF/C | Montenegro | 22

Myck Kabongo

  46. Utah | Myck Kabongo | 6-2 | 180 | PG | Texas | 22
