DraftSite's comments: Dallas gets their Do-It-All Playmaker who will be the centerpiece of the team moving past the Dirk led Era

DraftSite's comments: It will be tough for the Sixers to fit ultra-athletic Jackson next to Simmons and Embiid without him developing a formidable jumpshot. But with the Sixers always focused on the long-term potential of players, Jackson is the pick here and watch out for the duo of Jackson and Simmons wreaking havoc in transition from the start.

    STRENGTHS -Good height for a wing at 6' 7...

DraftSite's comments: Celtics have been up at the top of the draft in recent years but have yet to come away with a bonafide starter. Harry Giles may just be the pick to get them over the hump, as long as his health checks out. It will be interesting to see his fit next to Horford, who is a great tandem at either the 4 or 5 position and can be paired up next to about any big men in the league.

DraftSite's comments: Josh Jackson might have the combination of speed and size that may have some scouts deeming him the best athlete in this year's draft but in my eyes Dennis Smith Jr. is the biggest freak in the class. One of the best in-gamer dunkers you will see, if he ever develops a consistent jumper to match his bull-dog defense and natural ability to get to rack then he may be the top player from this group 5 years from now.

DraftSite's comments: I know I called Dennis Smith the best in-game dunker and best athlete in the class but Bridges is a close second and even beats out Jackson. He is going to rise up draft boards with his early season performance and I really like him as a prospect at the next level. The only question mark with him, even though he's shown the ability to knock down jumpers early in his freshman season, is whether or not it is reliable enough to have him play the 3 in the NBA.

DraftSite's comments: A tweener who is one of those freaky athletes that someone always takes a chance on too early. Not saying Isaac will amount to anything or should not be picked here just that he fits the mold of the likes of Noah Vonleh, Perry Jones, and Ed Davis.

DraftSite's comments: Tatum has the old man, midrange game that has gotten devalued in recent years but with the rise of fellow Dukie Jabari Parker, Tatum cannot go overlooked. He will be one of the safest prospects to draft and the Suns need to hit on this pick after numerous questionable moves in past drafts.

DraftSite's comments: The smooth lefty has a ceiling as high as John Wall and that just goes to show you how deep this draft is, especially at the Point Guard position

DraftSite's comments: Early season riser who is currently lighting it up for Arizona. May not be able to supplant any of the top 9 prospects ahead of him, but in most drafts you normally are not getting near the value you are as here at 10 with Markkanen.

DraftSite's comments: The Human Highlight Reel. He's fun, flashy, and brings energy but I am just not a believer in that cross body release. He is currently shooting above 40% from behind the arc off sheer confidence in his shot early in the year but I do not think I could even trust his jumper if he shoots over 50% from 3 after his entire freshman season.

  • Scouting Report

    Pros: One of the best passers you will ever see he sees the floor very well...

DraftSite's comments: I like Rabb alot and think that it is not out of the question that he would have gone top 5 in last year's draft had he declared. But in a much deeper class, Rabb is a great value selection at #12 for a team that would love to find its frontcourt partner of the future for Myles Turner.

DraftSite's comments: Streaky shooter who is always looking for his which will remind Detroit Natives of past Pistons player Brandon Jennings. If he can deal with the transition to a role player off the bench early in his career, he could potentially grow into a quality 6th man like Jamaal Crawford.

DraftSite's comments: Big bodied center who has yet to suit up for Duke this year but is already labeled as the best Center in a weak draft for the position. Do not know what to expect from Bolden but I hope he does not turn into the 2017 version of Daniel Orton after putting up mediocre at best stats as a freshman for a championship caliber team.

DraftSite's comments: The most polarizing player in this draft and is also quite possibly the most infamous. With the recent success of JJ Reddick paving the way, I just do not think Grayson Allen can slip past this spot as he is a proven shooter and an even better athlete than Reddick.

DraftSite's comments: Great athlete who can defend NBA 2's and 3's from the start. Even if he never reaches his ceiling on the offensive end, I just cannot see this guy not giving a team at least a solid 10 minutes a game for the next 10 years to guard a team's star player on the wing.

DraftSite's comments: Thought about coming out last year but Syracuse's Tyler Lydon is out to prove he made the right decision. Feel as if he may have gotten picked higher last year in a weaker class but think overall it will be smart for Lydon to solidify his game for the next level.

DraftSite's comments: Bam is exactly what his name implies and that is an intense, Bull-in-a-China-Shop type of player who shows consistent effort on both ends. Do not know exactly what his game will be at the next level but teams will love to have this guy bring a spark off their bench against 2nd units.

ROUND 2

ROUNDS: 1 2

DraftSite's comments: After a great college career players like Hayes seem to always sneak into the back of the first round and give meaningful minutes to a contender early in their careers. Here, Hayes goes as the 1st overall pick in the 2nd round but look for a team to select him late in the 1st hoping to get quality minutes early from the seasoned college player.

  • Scouting Report

    Pros: Tremendous player with amazing upside but as many who follow him may know his numbers took a big dip towards the end of the season and that is due to a lack of confidence all tho the skill set was there he often looked to the bench to seek approval but that seems to be changing because this summer h went home for a few weeks and he transformed his body which will most likely affect his game especially on the boards instead of being pushed around he can compete for rebounds each time which will give time more court time besides that his size and speed allow him to guard all 5 positions with out being pushed around in the post or beat of the dribble but on the offensive end he has a fundamentally sound stoke he has amazing athleticism...

DraftSite's comments: Has shed alot of weight in the offseason in hopes of being able to play the 3 in the league and I just cannot count this guy out. Not saying he will be anywhere close to the player or athlete Draymond Green is but would just like to point out that crazier things have happened. Jenkins has great wrist action on his jumper for a bigger guy and I just love his game and hope he can pan out at the next level.
