Mock Drafts

First Pick Grizzles: Luka Doncic SG/PG 19 yr. Slovenian

Doncic has been playing professionally for 3 years going up against grown men every game. He has a great shot and excellent passing abillites. He can play both the one and the two at 6'6.


Second Pick Suns: Deandre Ayton C Fr. Arizona

The last time that the Suns had a dominant center was Shaq and he only played there for a short time. Ayton is perfect for the Suns who need help down low.

Third Pick Hawks: Micheal Porter Jr. SF Fr. Mizzou

Porter's return from his back injury was not as expected going for 12 points on 5-17 shooting. But the Hawks need everything besides PG and take the best player on the board.

Fourth Pick Magic: Marvin Bagley III F Fr. Duke

Just think of this front court: Aaron Gordon, Marvin Bagley III and Nikola Vucevic. That's a pretty athletic front court. Bagley is one of the most unique players in the draft and the Magic won't pass up on him.

Fifth Pick Cavaliers: Mohamed Bamba C/PF Fr. Texas

Bamba is a defensive beast averaging 3.7 blocks per game. He also grabs 10 boards. The Cavs might look to trade this pick if Lebron stays put but assuming he doesn't this is a good pick for Cleveland.

Sixth Pick Kings: Jarren Jackson Jr. F Fr. Michigan State

Jackson is one of the best two way players in the nation averaging 3.2 blocks a game and shooting 38% from deep. He can be a good pick and pop guy paired alongside the speedy Dearron Fox.

Seventh Pick Mavericks: Wendel Carter Jr. F Fr. Duke

Carter, the 6'10 F/C out of Duke will be a good fit with the Mavs. The last time the Mavericks had a player that averaged 10+ boards a game was Tyson Chandler in 2014. I think that Wendell can break that streak.

Eighth Pick Bulls: Mikal Bridges SF Fr. Villanova

Bridges will fit in well at the SF spot for the Bulls with Zach Lavine and Lauri Markkanen around him. Mikal has the tools to become the next Kawhi Leonard or Paul George type of player.

Ninth Pick Knicks: Trae Young PG Fr. Oklahoma

Trae Young started off the season HOT. He was drawing comparisons to Stephen Curry. He did end up cooling off. He did still end up averaging the most PPG and APG in the nation. Trae Young and Porzingis could become the NBA's next dynamic duo.

Tenth Pick Hornets: Miles Bridges F Soph Michigan State

Bridges to the Hornets is a good fit. He can play either forward postion which
will probably be the 4 for the Hornets. Miles could be the number 2 or 3 guy
next year behind Kemba and Monk if he develops into anything.

Eleventh Pick Clippers: Collin Sexton PG Fr. Alabama

The Clippers draft the CP3 replacement in Sexton. Collin averaged 19 PPG as a freshmen. While he might not become the passer that Paul is, he will become a good scorer alongside Lou Will and Deandre Jordan.

Twelfth Pick 76ers: Robert Williams PF/C Soph Texas A&M

Williams a strong post defender would slide in right next to Embiid. Robert would take a lot of defensive pressure off Embiid and allow him to thrive on offense. He averaged 9 rebounds and 2.6 blocks per game.

Thirtieth Pick Nuggets: Kevin Knox SF Fr. Kentucky

Kevin Knox is a versatile forward who can play the 4 in the right system. He lead Kentucky in scoring putting up 15.6 PPG. The Nuggets need a SF with Wilson Chandler declining.

Fourteenth Pick Spurs: Troy Brown SG/SF Fr. Oregon

Brown isn't known for his athleticism but he can finish well around the rim and in tight places, similar to Isaiah Thomas. Troy needs to work on his deep ball shooting, and to improve from 29% if he wants to be known as a true 3 and D player.
