ROUND 1

ROUNDS: 1 2

DraftSite's comments: Simmons is a perfect fit for a Philadelphia team that needs some instant offense. His attitude may drop him a spot though.

DraftSite's comments: Ingram, Russell, and Randle gives you a nice young core to build on. Add in a likely resigned Jordan Clarkson and a good young coach in Luke Walton, and they may be two years away from contending for that 8th spot.

  • Scouting Report

    At 6-foot-9½ with the standing reach of an NBA center, an excellent handle, the fluidity of a guard and the stroke of a sharpshooter, the Durant comparisons look less and less ludicrous...

DraftSite's comments: Jaylen Brown's workouts have been too good and he's beginning to look like too good of a prospect to pass up. It may be moving from a 2-person draft to a 3.

DraftSite's comments: As bad as Phoenix was last year, they have a ton of nice young pieces all over, especially at guard. Getting a raw European to groom over the next few years would be a great move for the Suns.

DraftSite's comments: Minnesota just needs another year of maturity, rather than another draft pick. No one necessarily makes perfect sense here so getting a guy who knows how to win and produce, to come off the bench might be a great move.

DraftSite's comments: New Orleans wanted Jrue Holiday to be their point guard of the future, but after two years, they may be ready to go in another direction.

DraftSite's comments: Denver is another roster stocked with young's at all positions so getting the best guy on the board might their best bet.

DraftSite's comments: Sacramento's situation won't be cleared up until after free agency, but either way they really need solid depth at guard. At the same time, Cousins is such a question mark that they may want insurance in case they have to trade him. Getting Arvydas' son would be a start.

DraftSite's comments: If Deyonta Davis can learn to score in a short period of time, he might fit in perfectly to that Toronto roster.

DraftSite's comments: Do they need another John Henson? Probably not, but Hammond loves to draft lengthy players and Skal fits the mold.

DraftSite's comments: If they continue to start Aaron Gordon at power forward, then Orlando really doesn't have a lot of needs. So it would be hard to ignore a productive senior who averaged 18/7.5/7.8 that could help bring a more mature, winning attitude to the team.

DraftSite's comments: Getting a young power forward who doesn't need to start right away would give them some nice depth.

DraftSite's comments: They have their starting core locked up for a few years in Drummond, Harris, Reggie, KCP, and Marcus Morris, with Stanley Johnson chomping at the bits. So getting a guard who could mix in at PG and SG, would be perfect.

DraftSite's comments: The Clippers probably don't feel that they need much help besides getting healthy, but they do. Bembry would give them a mature, productive small forward who could start at SF in another year.
