Round Pick   Team Player Position School Height WeightComments
Phoenix DeAndre Ayton *** CArizona7' 0"220Ayton is too perfect of a fit for their current roster, and he has all the potential of a #1 pick, so they wouldn't be reaching for filling a need. Yet they still may surprise people and go Doncic. The connection with their coach is just too clear.
Sacramento Luka Doncic SGSlovenia6' 8"220Reports say that Doncic won't go to Sacramento yet the owner's son posted a picture with him and Vlade. I'm not convinced yet that Bagley is the pick given the way they want to play on defense. Porter is just too risky given that they selected Harry Giles last year and received no return.
Atlanta Marvin Bagley III *** PFDuke6' 11"220I could see Atlanta surprising people and picking Trae Young, but for now sticking with Bags. Bamba easily could be the pick too.
Memphis Mohamed Bamba *** CTexas7' 0"216Bamba doesn't want to go to Memphis, but leaving him here for now as Chicago or another team may trade up to get him.
Dallas Jaren Jackson Jr. *** PFMichigan State6' 11"225I'm one of the few people who doesn't like Jaren Jackson. There are players like him in every draft who don't yet produce in college yet tease teams with his talent and don't produce in the NBA either. When I say this about Jackson, people always send me a video.
Orlando Trae Young *** PGOklahoma6' 2"180Orlando has been looking for a point guard even after they drafted Elfrid Payton. You can't convince me that they wouldn't draft Trae Young if he made it to them.
Chicago Michael Porter Jr. *** SFMissouri6' 10"215Porter has been linked to nearly every team, so it wouldn't surprise me if he got taken at 2 or fell all the way to 13. A back injury is debilitating and so is a hip. Team's get scared by injuries every year. Wendell Carter or Mikal Bridges could easily be the pick here too.
Cleveland Trade Icon Wendell Carter Jr. *** PFDuke6' 9"255Cleveland has been tied to everyone and that may be because they have no idea what this offseason is going to look like for them. If they go for youth and potential Wendell Carter could be a cornerstone for them if he's allowed to develop. Easily could be Bridges or Knox here too.
New York Mikal Bridges * SFVillanova6' 7"210The 3 hour dinner with Lonnie Walker has me tempted to put him here, but Mikal Bridges always felt like a natural fit, especially since the Knicks will need to be in win-now mode next year.
Philadelphia Trade Icon Kevin Knox *** SFKentucky6' 9"206Knox is overlooked because of how good this draft class is, but if he gets the opportunity, he'll make a team look pretty smart. If Philly goes best available, this would be the direction.
Charlotte Lonnie Walker *** SGMiami6' 4"206A Walker and Walker back-court just seems like too much fun.
LA Clippers Trade Icon Robert Williams ** PFTexas A&M6' 9"237Robert Williams is a little underrated in this draft an earlier team could fall in love with him. Yet I've always felt like a natural fit here given their needs in the front court after they traded Blake, and if they get rid of DeAndre. Now that he's had a few workouts there, I'll probably leave this pick along, unless I hear otherwise.
LA Clippers Shai Gilgeous-Alexander *** PGKentucky6' 5"185SGA is another player who could go anywhere depending on if an earlier team decides to draft by PG need. While Collin Sexton would be a better fit for these Clippers, Shai might be the better prospect.
Denver Dzanan Musa SFBosnia and Herzegovina6' 9"195Not sure why I've always tied Denver to a foreign player in the mock, but it just seems natural given their solid starters and lack of glaring need besides time and health.
Washington Mitchell Robinson *** CUnited States7' 0"220Gortat's days are over and Mitchell Robinson has as much potential as they could hope for the center position.
Phoenix Trade Icon Collin Sexton *** PGAlabama6' 3"175Phoenix needs a point guard to pair with Ayton, Booker, Jackson, Warren, and while they'd prefer a less ball-dominant one, it would be hard to pass on Sexton.
Milwaukee Zhaire Smith *** SGTexas Tech6' 5"195Milwaukee drafts length and Smith has it. While he only scored 11 ppg in college, teams love him and his defense, so he could even go earlier.
San Antonio Miles Bridges ** SFMichigan State6' 7"230Undersized power forwards tend to fall every year. While we list him as a SF, teams may just not know what to do with him.
Atlanta Trade Icon Anfernee Simons SGIMG Academy (HS-Florida)6' 3"165Atlanta is not in a rush to succeed right away, so getting Simons feels like a good long-term play.
Minnesota Trade Icon Gary Trent Jr. *** SGDuke6' 5"200It would just be a good story for Minnesota to take the son of a former player of theirs. Not to mention that he's probably a better prospect, and underrated in a deep class.
Utah Kevin Huerter ** SGMaryland6' 7"190Only because they may have promised him they'd pick him here
Chicago Trade Icon Chandler Hutchison SFBoise State6' 7"193Only because they may have promised him they'd pick him here
Indiana Trevon Duval *** PGDuke6' 3"191Indiana could use a point guard next to Oladipo and Duval can grow nicely into that role.
Portland Troy Brown Jr. *** SFOregon6' 7"215Could he be the answer at the 3 that Lillard is looking for? Probably not, but they might try again.
LA Lakers Trade Icon Josh Okogie ** SGGeorgia Tech6' 4"215He's long and could help on defense in the back court where Lonzo Ball might help
Philadelphia Jerome Robinson * SGBoston College6' 6"191He's one of the better scorers in this draft and would give the 76'ers some nice extra punch off the bench
Boston Donte DiVincenzo ** SGVillanova6' 5"205No real reason for this pick except he seems like he belongs in Boston. They obviously don't really need a guard, but not sure they'll feel their front court answer is here. Maybe Brandon McCoy
Golden State Keita Bates-Diop * SFOhio State6' 7"235Upperclassmen tend to fall but the Warriors would be happy to have a versatile, athletic player that they could use off the bench next year.
Brooklyn Trade Icon Hamidou Diallo SGKentucky6' 5"190Brooklyn could go a million directions here, but they'll likely pick
Atlanta Trade Icon Elie-Franck Okobo PGFrance6' 2"180Picking for the future in someone they can stash, even though it's not necessary given the dearth of talent still available at this point. But they pick 4 picks later anyways.
