The order is set, the die is cast. Lets do this!
Previous mock drafts:
1st overall pick the Orlando Magic select: Chet Holmgren
20: 7’1 200 Big Gonzaga. Comp= smaller but better passing KP.
Orlando sticks to its identity by upgrading Bamba and focusing in on another defense first guy.
2nd overall pick the Oklahoma City Thunder select: Paolo Banchero
19: 6’9 240 Big Duke (Italy) Comp= Pistons Blake Griffin
The Thunder take Paolo and hope he helps fill the hole of anther creator next to SGA.
3rd overall pick the Houston Rockets select: Jabari Smith jr
19: 6’10 210 Front Court Auburn. Comp= Rashard Lewis ish
The rockets completely cover up Jabari’s weaknesses, I LOVE THIS FIT.
4th overall pick the Sacramento Kings select: Shaedon Sharpe
19: 6’6 200 Wing Kentucky (Canada). Comp= slower Zach LaVine.
NOTE TO MY EDITOR WHO IS A KINGS FAN AND ASKED FOR A WING DEFENDER: Sharpe is the best player available, you can’t really pass on him, I’m sorry.
Sharpe has some great potential especially as a shooter.
5th overall pick the Detroit Pistons select: Jaden Ivey
20: 6’4 200 Guard Purdue Comp= Donovan Mitchell
A second creator next to Cade is great. Cade throwing lobs to Ivey is going to be Top 10 Highlights weekly
6th overall pick the Indiana Pacers select: Adrian Griffin Jr.
19: 6’7 180 Wing Duke Comp= Jimmy Butler
The Pacers go with the best wing available. Hopefully his defense rebounds after all the injuries.
7th overall pick the Portland Trailblazers select: Jalen Duren
18: 6’10 241 Pivot Memphis Comp= More Athletic and Defense minded Jermaine O’Neal
Duren has the highest ceiling available. This also allows them to explore moving on from Nurkic.
8th overall pick the New Orleans Pelicans select: Bennedict Mathurin
20: 6’5 195 Wing Arizona (Canada). Comp= Kevin Martin.
The Pelicans looking to add role players around CJ, BI and Zion find a good one in Mathurin.
9th overall pick the San Antonio Spurs select: Keegan Murray
22: 6’8 215 Forward Iowa. Comp= Marcus Morris who isn’t a dirty player and plays real defense.
The Spurs pick the perfect Spur.
10th overall pick the Washington Wizards select: Johnny Davis
20: 6’5 200 Wing Wisconsin. Comp= Ron Harper.
Davis’s slide ends here where he will either take the spotlight from Beal when he is traded or try to help ease some of Beals load.
11th overall pick the New York Knicks select: Dyson Daniels
19: 6’8 180 Guard Ignite (Australia). Comp= Josh Green
NY is gonna try to play Dyson at the 1, Dyson should really hope he doesn’t go here.
12th overall pick the Oklahoma City Thunder select: Jeremy Sochan
19: 6’7 220 Forward Baylor (Poland) comp= taller Matisse Thybulle
The Thunder go with the weird player per usual. Sochan could be really interesting next to Paolo.
13th overall pick the Charlotte Hornets select: Mark Williams
20: 7’ 245 Big Duke (Nigeria). Comp= Derrick Favors
Charlotte needs a big just like Williams so hopefully he fits the bill.
14th overall pick the Cleveland Cavaliers select: Tari Eason
21: 6’8 215 Big LSU. Comp= James Johnson
Tari isn’t a positon of need but his defense will be invaluable.
15th overall pick the Charlotte Hornets select: Jaden Hardy
19: 6’5 185 Wing G-League. Comp= Smaller Jordan Clarkson
The Hornets take the spot up weapon they need next to Lamelo Ball.
16th overall pick the Atlanta Hawks select: Malaki Branham
19: 6’5 175 Wing Ohio St. Comp= Caris LeVert
Hawks need talent as the begin a simi rebuild and this will be how they start acquiring talent.
17th overall pick the Houston Rockets select: Tyty Washington
20: 6’3 175 Guard Kentucky. Comp= Brandon Knight Ish
Rockets shouldn’t reach for a maybe point guard with Ivey when they can get one here with Tyty.
18th overall pick the Chicago Bulls select: Ismael Kamagate
22: 6’11 230 Pivot Paris (France). Comp= Daniel Gafford with a jumper.
This will give the bulls another look on defense to hopeful throw at teams in the playoffs.
19th overall pick the Minnesota Timberwolves select: Ochai Agbaji
22: 6’5 215 Wing Kansas (Nigeria). Comp= Josh Richardson
20th overall pick the San Antonio Spurs select: Kendall Brown
19: 6’8 210 Wing Baylor. Comp= Smaller AK47
Brown is a great passing wing who will look much better outside of the Baylor System.
21st overall pick the Denver Nuggets select: Marjon Beauchamp
22: 6’7 225 Wing Ignite. Comp= Josh Howard
The Nuggets will love Marion’s cutting next to Jokic and his positional versatility on defense will really help.
22nd overall pick the Memphis Grizzlies select: Jake LaRivera
20: 6’8 200 Forward Wake Forrest. Comp= George Niang
The Grizzlies make their bench even more deadly.
23rd overall pick the Brooklyn Nets select: EJ Liddell
21: 6’7 240 Big Ohio St. Comp= Poor Man’s Tobias Harris
The Nets go for someone who should help with defense and hopefully a bit of scoring for them in the next few seasons as they try to keep playing small ball defense.
24th overall pick the Milwaukee Bucks select: Matteo Spagnolo
19: 6’6 190 Point/Wing Vanoli Cremona (Italy). Comp= Spencer Dinwiddie
The bucks need to stash a pick, but even if not Matteo could actually help them with his ball handling this coming season.
25th overall pick the San Antonio Spurs select: Bryce McGowens
19: 6’7 180 Wing Nebraska. Comp= Jamaal Crawford ish
The Spurs can swing for the fences with these picks and Bryce has Sky High potential.
26th overall pick the Dallas Mavericks select: Dalen Terry
20: 6’7 195 Wing Arizona. Comp= Bruce Brown.
Why not take the ball handler who can also defend really well and hope his shooting from the tournament was real?
27th overall pick the Miami Heat select: Blake Wesley
19: 6’4 170 Guard Notre Dame. Comp= Wes Mathews with less shooting and defense
The Heat take Wesley to hopefully learn how to play proper defense and grow into the perfect Heat.
28th overall pick the Golden State Warriors select: Leonard Miller
19: 6’10 200 Forward High School (Canada). Comp= Jeff Green
Miller is the biggest what if in the draft. GSW taking him is a great idea.
29th overall pick the Memphis Grizzlies select: Patrick Baldwin Jr.
19: 6’10 205 Forward Milwaukee. Comp= Davis Bertans
Baldwin was Horrible compared to pre season expectations, the Grizzlies gambled on Zaire and it payed off so hopefully this gamble will as well.
30th overall pick the Oklahoma City Thunder select: Nikola Jovic
19: 6’10 Forward Mega Basket (Serbia). Comp= Tom Chambers with handles
Why not take Poku but good?
31st overall pick the Indiana Pacers select: Ousmane Dieng
