Round Pick   Team Player Position School Height WeightComments
Dallas Markelle Fultz *** PGWashington6' 5"190Dallas gets their Do-It-All Playmaker who will be the centerpiece of the team moving past the Dirk led Era
Philadelphia Josh Jackson *** SFKansas6' 8"205It 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.
Boston Trade Icon Harry Giles *** PFDuke6' 10"240Celtics 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.
Miami Dennis Smith *** PGNC State6' 2"195Josh 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.
Minnesota Miles Bridges *** SFMichigan State6' 7"230I 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.
Washington Jonathan Isaac *** PFFlorida State6' 10"210A 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.
Phoenix Jayson Tatum *** SFDuke6' 8"205Tatum 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.
New Orleans De'Aaron Fox *** PGKentucky6' 3"175The 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
Orlando Frank Ntilikina PGFrance6' 5"190It may sound like a broken record but Ntilikina is another one of those prospects who has nearly all the intangibles except a proven jumper.
Denver Lauri Markkanen *** PFArizona7' 0"230Early 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.
Sacramento Lonzo Ball *** PGUCLA6' 6"190The 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.
Indiana Ivan Rabb ** PFCal6' 10"220I 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.
Detroit Malik Monk *** SGKentucky6' 3"200Streaky 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.
Philadelphia Trade Icon Frank Jackson *** PGDuke6' 3"215Bouncy guard who is tough and well-rounded. One of my favorite prospects but I do not know if he can run the point efficiently at the NBA level.
Portland Marques Bolden *** CDuke6' 11"245Big 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.
Milwaukee Grayson Allen * SGDuke6' 5"205The 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.
New York OG Anunoby ** SFIndiana6' 8"235Great 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.
Utah Tyler Lydon ** SFSyracuse6' 9"220Thought 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.
Oklahoma City Terrance Ferguson SGAustralia6' 7"185Playing overseas now in Australia but is long and a pretty consistent shooter. Would definitely be wise to take a flyer on a guy like Ferguson after the lottery.
Charlotte Bam Adebayo *** PFKentucky6' 10"255Bam 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.
Houston Jaron Blossomgame SFClemson6' 7"220Senior who is just a gamer and may be the front runner for Naismath Player of the Year. I do not think he will take over College Basketball quite like Buddy did but who knows what could happen.
Chicago Isaiah Hartenstein CGermany6' 11"245
Denver Trade Icon Kostja Mushidi SGGermany6' 5"205
Brooklyn Trade Icon Edmond Sumner ** PGXavier6' 5"185
Toronto DJ Hogg ** SFTexas A&M6' 8"220
Atlanta Josh Hart SGVillanova6' 5"205Just a great teammate and player who every coach would want on their team. The Hawks love to pick players like Hart and I could see him being a better Thabo Sefolosha in the NBA one day rather soon.
San Antonio Rodions Kurucs SFLatvia6' 8"190
Cleveland Jarrett Allen *** CTexas6' 11"224
Toronto Trade Icon Rawle Alkins *** SGArizona6' 4"225
Utah Trade Icon Thomas Bryant ** PFIndiana6' 10"255
Dallas Nigel Hayes PFWisconsin6' 8"240After 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.
New Orleans Trade Icon LaGerald Vick ** SGKansas6' 5"180Coming together a little bit now in his 2nd year at Kansas and could really have a bright future if he keeps putting in the work to get better.
Atlanta Trade Icon Malik Pope * PFSan Diego State6' 9"220
Memphis Trade Icon Luke Kennard ** SGDuke6' 5"200Kennard will most likely not enter the draft after the year but I just want a guy like him to succeed so bad in the NBA and I think he has a real chance with his uncanny ability to knock down tough shots game after game.
Boston Trade Icon Terry Larrier ** SGUConn6' 8"195
Washington Alpha Kaba PFFrance6' 10"220
Phoenix Devonte' Graham * PGKansas6' 2"175Great at getting to the rim and finishing which could translate into a superb backup PG in the league.
New Orleans Sviatoslav Mykhailiuk SGKansas6' 8"191A very young college junior who may benefit from going all 4 years as he has not quite brought it all together yet in his career.
Orlando V.J. Beachem SFNotre Dame6' 8"200
Houston Trade Icon Luke Kornet CVanderbilt7' 1"250Stretch 4 who could play Center but I just do not know who Kornet can guard in the league. A very underrated college player who would benefit drastically by gaining an addition 30 pounds.
Sacramento Robert Williams *** PFTexas A&M6' 9"237
Indiana Alec Peters SFValparaiso6' 9"230
Philadelphia Trade Icon Wenyen Gabriel *** SFKentucky6' 9"200
LA Lakers James Blackmon Jr. * SGIndiana6' 4"195
Houston Trade Icon Allonzo Trier ** SGArizona6' 5"199
Milwaukee Justin Jackson * SFUNC6' 8"200Smooth mid range shooter who has seemingly been at UNC for longer than his 3 years there as he was a Day 1 contributor for many good teams.
New York Isaiah Briscoe ** PGKentucky6' 3"218Tough guard who may not be quite athletic enough to guard or get by NBA PG's. Wish he was a little taller and had a chance at playing the 2 in the NBA game.
Utah Dillon Brooks * SFOregon6' 7"225
Denver Trade Icon Abdul-Malik Abu * PFNC State6' 8"240
Charlotte BeeJay Anya * CNC State6' 9"295
Houston Omer Yurtseven *** CGeorgetown7' 0"245
New York Trade Icon Kennedy Meeks CUNC6' 9"280
Denver Trade Icon Cameron Oliver ** PFNevada6' 8"225
Brooklyn Trade Icon Monte Morris PGIowa State6' 3"175
Toronto Kris Jenkins SFVillanova6' 6"240Has 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.
San Antonio Trade Icon Isaiah Hicks PFUNC6' 8"230
San Antonio Frank Mason III PGKansas5' 11"185Tough as they come and the Spurs can afford to take a chance on a great college player who will work guys in Camp for a roster spot. Can finish over bigs with great body control and is another guy that I just cannot count out.
Boston Trade Icon Melo Trimble * PGMaryland6' 3"190Melo has taken a dive in NBA Draft Circles but some team will take a chance on a scoring lead guard who can get in the paint at will.
Boston Trade Icon E.C. Matthews * PGRhode Island6' 5"205
Utah Trade Icon Tyler Dorsey ** SGOregon6' 4"180
