Player | Ht | Wt | Pos | Team | Age

Alex Len

  1. Cleveland | Alex Len | 7-1 | 255 | C | Maryland | 21

A real shocker here if Noel slid to #4, but IMO I'd go Len over Noel with Biyambo already on the roster. Len has the type of physical ability and post skills to be an NBA allstar down the line. Whether or not he could develop into that in Charlotte is a question, but one I think they would be worth risking.
Victor Oladipo

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

Back to back Indiana picks, Oladipo would be an excellent pick for any team but especially Sacramento. He brings athleticism, energy, rebounding, and fast break finish ability. Oladipo would compete for time immediately at either SG or SF.
Otto Porter

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

Although thought to be a no brainer with Noel, Len, and Bennett on the board I'd imagine the Wizards would love to move down a couple spots in this scenario but IMO even if Noel is available at #3 I feel Porter is the pick. It makes too much sense. He's a high character local boy, has the length and defense to make up for the somewhat short Beal, and he simply has the makings of an excellent role player. IMO a starting 5 with Wall/Beal/Porter/Okafor/Nene is a playoff team. They can address their stretch 4 with a later pick or via free agency.
Cody Zeller

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

Zeller has gone from really overrated to far too underrated. Alongside Anthony Davis he would build a formidable young front court to lead the Pelicans into the right direction.
Nerlens Noel

  5. Phoenix | Nerlens Noel | 6-11 | 206 | PF/C | Kentucky | 20

The slide ends here. The truth is that Noel is far more likely to go #1 then drop to 5 but in this scenario I feel teams will be incredibly leery of his torn up knee and the fact that even pre injury he had concerns of his basketball ability. At #5 however is would be far too much for Phoenix to pass up on whether or not Gortat fits in their future plans.
Trey Burke

  6. *New Orleans | Trey Burke | 6-1 | 190 | PG | Michigan | 21

Common sense says pick Noel to be the face of the franchise, but IMO Trey Burke gets the slight edge due to the concerns of Noel and Burke being the best player in the draft. Burke becomes an immediate starter of the Magic. Vucevic showed me enough and you can play either Harkless or Harris at PF at times to avoid being forced to draft Noel. Burke would immediately be the favorite for ROY.
Ben McLemore

  7. *Sacramento | Ben McLemore | 6-5 | 190 | SG | Kansas | 21

Tough spot here for Cleveland, do they go with the upside of Nerlens Noel, the "safe route" of Otto Porter, the "wildcard" of Anthony Bennett, or the best talent but log jam creator in McLemore. In the end I believe it comes down to McLemore or Porter. I simply don't feel the Cavs attraction to Noel being very strong and at the end of the day I believe you take the best player at #1. To me it's clearly McLemore. Although he seems to suffer from the same syndrome Rudy Gay and Bradley Beal had in college in terms of lack of assertion, McLemore is too good of a shooter and too athletic to not be a good pro and potential All Star. Although Waiters played well I still liken Waiters to a 6th man roll. At the worst you have a lethal trio of young guards in Irving, Waiters, and McLemore. I could even at times have Waiters at the point. I wouldn't be shocked though to see Len or Bennett at least get looks from the Cavs even in a trade down.
CJ McCollum

  8. Detroit | CJ McCollum | 6-3 | 197 | PG/SG | Lehigh | 22

The next Chauncey Billups or next Rodney Stuckey/Brandon Knight. Definitely a risky pick but I believe McCollum has enough PG skills to be an excellent starting PG in this league. I think hsi defensive potential makes him a standout compared to other "combo guards." I feel even a backcourt of him and Knight would be successful in spurts due to both of their ability to play off ball.
Kentavious Caldwell-Pope

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

The T'wolves need scoring and shooting badly. Pope is rising fast up draft boards and has the type of game to start immediately for the Wolves or at least as a 6th man and provide the team with immediate scoring. Definitely would be able to utilize Rubio's passing and set ups to stretch the floor.
Anthony Bennett

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

Steven Adams

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

Kelly Olynyk

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

Giannis Adetokoubo

  13. *Boston | Giannis Adetokoubo | 6-10 | 205 | SF | Greece | 19

A fast riser I feel this spot is perfect for Giannis. The sixers were hurt bad this year by the departure of Iguodala. Giannis would be perfect for the Sixers and brings a lot on both ends of the floor that Iguodala did. I prefer Turner to the 2 guard or backup PG, and Thaddeus Young is most succesful inside.
Shane Larkin

  14. *Minnesota | Shane Larkin | 5-11 | 171 | PG | Miami | 21

Sergey Karasev

  15. Milwaukee | Sergey Karasev | 6-7 | 197 | SG/SF | Russia | 20

Dennis Schroeder

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

  17. Atlanta | Michael Carter-Williams | 6-6 | 185 | PG | Syracuse | 22

Shabazz Muhammad

  18. *Dallas | Shabazz Muhammad | 6-6 | 225 | SF | UCLA | 21

Tony Snell

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

Lucas Nogueira

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

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

  24. New York | Ricardo Ledo | 6-6 | 197 | SG | Providence | 21

  25. LA Clippers | Rudy Gobert | 7-2 | 238 | C | France | 22

Tim Hardaway Jr

  38. *Milwaukee | Tim Hardaway Jr | 6-6 | 200 | SG | Michigan | 22

Erick Green

  39. *Portland | Erick Green | 6-3 | 180 | PG/SG | Virginia Tech | 23

Dewayne Dedmon

  40. Portland | Dewayne Dedmon | 6-11 | 240 | C | USC | 24

Trevor Mbakwe

  41. *Memphis | Trevor Mbakwe | 6-8 | 236 | PF/C | Minnesota | 25

Archie Goodwin

  42. *New Orleans | Archie Goodwin | 6-5 | 189 | SG | Kentucky | 19

Nate Wolters

  43. *Dallas | Nate Wolters | 6-5 | 196 | PG | South Dakota St. | 23

Ray McCallum

  44. *Atlanta | Ray McCallum | 6-1 | 190 | PG | Detroit | 23

Michael Snaer

  45. *Portland | Michael Snaer | 6-5 | 200 | SG | Florida St. | 24

Joffrey Lauvergne

  46. Utah | Joffrey Lauvergne | 6-11 | 240 | PF/C | France | 22

Augusto Lima

  47. *Denver | Augusto Lima | 6-10 | 234 | PF | Brazil | 22

Colton Iverson

  48. LA Lakers | Colton Iverson | 7-0 | 263 | PF/C | Colorado St. | 25

James Ennis

  49. Chicago | James Ennis | 6-7 | 200 | SG/SF | Long Beach State | 24

Seth Curry

  50. *Miami | Seth Curry | 6-2 | 180 | PG/SG | Duke | 23

Another SG in a PG's body. In the least he would provide the Spurs with just another perimter threat.
DeShaun Thomas

  51. *Orlando | DeShaun Thomas | 6-6 | 220 | SF/PF | Ohio State | 22

Alex Oriakhi

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

Myck Kabongo

  53. Indiana | Myck Kabongo | 6-2 | 180 | PG | Texas | 22

Kenny Kadji

  54. *Philadelphia | Kenny Kadji | 6-10 | 242 | PF/C | Miami | 26

Peyton Siva

  55. Memphis | Peyton Siva | 6-1 | 181 | PG | Louisville | 23

AJ Price simply is not the long term answer at backup PG to Wall. Siva would have to compete on the summer team and training camp to secure a roster spot but he has the intelligence and quickness you would look for in a backup for Wall.
Christian Watford

  56. *Detroit | Christian Watford | 6-9 | 230 | SF | Indiana | 23

Brandon Paul

  57. *Phoenix | Brandon Paul | 6-4 | 200 | SG | Illinois | 23

Ryan Kelly

  58. San Antonio | Ryan Kelly | 6-11 | 230 | PF | Duke | 23

Alex Abrines

  59. *Minnesota | Alex Abrines | 6-6 | 190 | SG | Spain | 20

Derrick Nix

  60. *Memphis | Derrick Nix | 6-9 | 270 | PF/C | Michigan St. | 23

Big bodied man who could learn a thing or two from Randolph and Gasol and could one day develop into a serviceable NBA big man.
