Player | Ht | Wt | Pos | Team | Age

Otto Porter

  1. Cleveland | Otto Porter | 6-9 | 200 | SF | Georgetown | 20

He fills the biggest need for Cleveland and also adds an intangibles/leadership type of player. Great when trying to rebuild an entire franchise.
Trey Burke

  2. *Orlando | Trey Burke | 6-1 | 190 | PG | Michigan | 21

I think it's time to part ways with Jameer Nelson. What better way than with the best PG in the draft. Orlando is rebuilding and Trey Burke is a mature player with leadership skills to lead the rebuild.
Nerlens Noel

  3. Washington | Nerlens Noel | 6-11 | 206 | PF/C | Kentucky | 20

With Otto Porter off the board, Washington takes a chance with Nerlens Noel. Nene is in his 30s and Okafor is gone after next season. Might as well start off fresh with a defensive big.
Victor Oladipo

  4. Charlotte | Victor Oladipo | 6-4 | 213 | SG/SF | Indiana | 21

Charlotte gets another hard worker that had success in college. A high charisma player to match MKG and Kemba.
Ben McLemore

  5. Phoenix | Ben McLemore | 6-5 | 190 | SG | Kansas | 21

Phoenix snatches up Ben McLemore as soon as they see he slipped this far. Phoenix needs to rebuild and playing Dragic/BMac would be a nice foundation.
CJ McCollum

  6. *New Orleans | CJ McCollum | 6-3 | 197 | PG/SG | Lehigh | 22

McCollum seems like a surprise pick here but I think they give Al-Farouq Aminu another chance before they draft a guy like Bennett. McCollum can score and would be a nice player either off the bench or playing alongside Eric Gordon.
Alex Len

  7. *Sacramento | Alex Len | 7-1 | 255 | C | Maryland | 20

Yes, Portland just drafted Meyers Leonard and Alex Len is the same exact player but Len has shown more potential. Plus, there aren't any shooting guards to take with the #10 pick, unless Portland thinks Shabazz is a SG.
Michael Carter-Williams

  8. Detroit | Michael Carter-Williams | 6-6 | 185 | PG | Syracuse | 22

Knight can play SG on offense and guard PGs while MCW can play PG and guard SGs. Think Livingston and Jennings.
Kentavious Caldwell-Pope

  9. *Utah | Kentavious Caldwell-Pope | 6-6 | 205 | SG | Georgia | 21

Minnesota gets a nice shooting guard that can come in right away and play. They finally get the missing piece and, when healthy, they can be a playoff team.
Cody Zeller

  10. *Portland | Cody Zeller | 7-0 | 230 | PF/C | Indiana | 21

Cody Zeller is going to be a nice player in the league. He is also an insurance policy incase they don't bring back Bynum or he gets re-injured. Steven Adams could also be taken here.
Steven Adams

  11. *Philadelphia | Steven Adams | 7-0 | 255 | C | Pittsburgh | 20

OKC drafts Steven Adams and hopes he learns from Perkins, Ibaka, and Collison in order to be the future starter in 3-5 years.
Shabazz Muhammad

  12. *Oklahoma Cty | Shabazz Muhammad | 6-6 | 225 | SF | UCLA | 21

Shawn Marion isn't what he used to be and I think Dallas wants to reload, not rebuild. Shabazz can provide scoring off the bench for now and become a full-time starter in the future, when Dallas decides to rebuild.
Anthony Bennett

  13. *Boston | Anthony Bennett | 6-7 | 240 | SF/PF | UNLV | 21

Trey Burke is gone and so is Victor Oladipo. They go with Bennett and hope he can play the combo-forward position, since they desperately need a SF and PF.
Dennis Schroeder

  14. *Minnesota | Dennis Schroeder | 6-2 | 168 | PG | Germany | 20

Utah gets their PG that they covet. Schroeder can be a nice pick-up for them as they finally finish piecing together their line-up of young guns.
Giannis Adetokoubo

  15. Milwaukee | Giannis Adetokoubo | 6-10 | 205 | SF | Greece | 19

Milwaukee might have to rebuild if Jennings and Ellis leave. Adding Giannis gives them the chance to fill up their front-line with Sanders, Henson, and Ilyasova. All three, like Giannis, can play multiple positions, which will make them a joy to watch.
Sergey Karasev

  16. *Atlanta | Sergey Karasev | 6-7 | 197 | SG/SF | Russia | 20

I don't think the Celtics need a big-man since they just drafted Fab and Sullinger. They pickup a swingman that can come off the bench in their rebuilding effort. Or they can keep him overseas until he's ready and the Celtics are rebuilt.
Kelly Olynyk

  17. Atlanta | Kelly Olynyk | 7-0 | 234 | C | Gonzaga | 23

Josh Smith is seemingly out of Atlanta and Olynyk provides a guy that can play right away. Especially alongside an inside presence like Al Horford or... dare I say, Dwight Howard.
Tony Mitchell

  18. *Dallas | Tony Mitchell | 6-9 | 236 | SF/PF | North Texas | 22

Again Atlanta rids themselves of Josh Smith and get another combo-forward to take his place. If they think they have Howard in the bag, they could go after Tim Hardaway Jr to be their starter with this pick.
Gorgui Dieng

  19. *Cleveland | Gorgui Dieng | 6-11 | 230 | C | Louisville | 24

Gorgui Dieng is a defensive guy that can take that role from Varejao as he fades. A three big rotation of Dieng, Zeller, and Thompson sounds pretty good for the future.
Tim Hardaway Jr

  20. Chicago | Tim Hardaway Jr | 6-6 | 200 | SG | Michigan | 22

Chicago needs a SG right now, Tim Hardaway is as NBA ready as any other SG. How is this not a perfect fit?
Rudy Gobert

  21. *Minnesota | Rudy Gobert | 7-2 | 238 | C | France | 21

With every position seemingly taken, why not take a shot at a guy like Gobert? If he pans out, you could have one of the biggest three man rotations in the league in the future.
Mason Plumlee

  22. Brooklyn | Mason Plumlee | 6-11 | 238 | PF | Duke | 24

He plays hard, rebounds well, and has some scoring ability. He can do what Kris Humphries is currently doing and do it for less.
Shane Larkin

  23. Indiana | Shane Larkin | 5-11 | 171 | PG | Miami | 21

Shane Larkin isn't going to solve the issue at PG for Indiana but at this point, he could be a George Hill type of player, except off the bench.
Lucas Nogueira

  24. New York | Lucas Nogueira | 7-0 | 220 | PF/C | Brazil | 21

Where the hell does New York go with here? SG and SF and the only untouchable positions but it's open season at every other spot. Chandler is a little older and Nogueria could be ready to be a back-up once Chandler's time is done.
Allen Crabbe

  25. LA Clippers | Allen Crabbe | 6-6 | 197 | SG | California | 22

I think Crabbe can be a spark-plug off the bench just like Crawford. Obviously not as effective but it's something.
Glen Rice Jr.

  26. *Oklahoma Cty | Glen Rice Jr. | 6-6 | 211 | SG | USA | 23

Minny goes with another swingman that can probably play some SF. He can come off the bench for them as KCP starts. Suddenly, the SG position seems pretty locked in for a while.
Livio Jean-Charles

  27. Denver | Livio Jean-Charles | 6-9 | 217 | SF/PF | France | 20

LJC can be pretty decent in the future and going to Denver gives him a chance to stay overseas a little longer. Gives him a chance to grow as a player.
Jamaal Franklin

  28. San Antonio | Jamaal Franklin | 6-5 | 191 | SG/SF | San Diego St. | 22

The Spurs get their hands on another one of these hard working players. Like Kawhi Leonard, he's from SDSU and is a workhorse. He can be a Tony Allen type of player with Pop as his coach.
Ricardo Ledo

  29. *Phoenix | Ricardo Ledo | 6-6 | 197 | SG | Providence | 21

Ledo has baggage but he also has the skill to be a very good pro. With Coach Brooks as well as Westbrook/Durant in his head, he can turn out to be a steal for OKC.
Tony Snell

  30. *Golden St. | Tony Snell | 6-7 | 198 | SG/SF | New Mexico | 22

Phoenix tries to rebuild and adding Tony Snell can be beneficial for them in the future as he can be a scorer off the bench.
Reggie Bullock

  31. *Cleveland | Reggie Bullock | 6-7 | 200 | SG/SF | North Carolina | 23

Nate Wolters

  32. *Oklahoma Cty | Nate Wolters | 6-5 | 196 | PG | South Dakota St. | 22

Isaiah Canaan

  33. Cleveland | Isaiah Canaan | 6-0 | 190 | PG | Murray St. | 22

Jeff Withey

  34. *Houston | Jeff Withey | 7-0 | 222 | C | Kansas | 24

Lorenzo Brown

  35. *Philadelphia | Lorenzo Brown | 6-5 | 189 | PG/SG | NC State | 23

James Ennis

  36. Sacramento | James Ennis | 6-7 | 200 | SG/SF | Long Beach State | 23

CJ Leslie

  37. Detroit | CJ Leslie | 6-9 | 209 | SF/PF | NC State | 22

Myck Kabongo

  38. *Milwaukee | Myck Kabongo | 6-2 | 180 | PG | Texas | 22

Robert Covington

  39. *Portland | Robert Covington | 6-7 | 209 | SF | Tennessee State | 23

Alex Abrines

  40. Portland | Alex Abrines | 6-6 | 190 | SG | Spain | 20

  41. *Memphis
Dewayne Dedmon

  42. *New Orleans | Dewayne Dedmon | 6-11 | 240 | C | USC | 24

Carrick Felix

  43. *Dallas | Carrick Felix | 6-6 | 203 | SG/SF | Arizona St. | 23

James Southerland

  44. *Atlanta | James Southerland | 6-8 | 221 | SF/PF | Syracuse | 23

Pierre Jackson

  45. *Portland | Pierre Jackson | 5-10 | 176 | PG | Baylor | 22

Andre Roberson

  46. Utah | Andre Roberson | 6-7 | 206 | SF/PF | Colorado | 22

Ray McCallum

  47. *Denver | Ray McCallum | 6-1 | 190 | PG | Detroit | 22

Archie Goodwin

  48. LA Lakers | Archie Goodwin | 6-5 | 189 | SG | Kentucky | 19

Bojan Dubljevic

  49. Chicago | Bojan Dubljevic | 6-9 | 235 | PF/C | Montenegro | 22

Rodney Williams

  50. *Miami | Rodney Williams | 6-7 | 200 | SF | Minnesota | 22

Kenny Kadji

  51. *Orlando | Kenny Kadji | 6-10 | 242 | PF/C | Miami | 25

Peyton Siva

  52. *Minnesota | Peyton Siva | 6-1 | 181 | PG | Louisville | 23

Colton Iverson

  53. Indiana | Colton Iverson | 7-0 | 263 | PF/C | Colorado St. | 24

Mike Muscala

  54. *Philadelphia | Mike Muscala | 6-11 | 230 | PF/C | Bucknell | 22

Ryan Kelly

  55. Memphis | Ryan Kelly | 6-11 | 230 | PF | Duke | 23

Daniel Theis

  56. *Detroit | Daniel Theis | 6-9 | 230 | PF | Germany | 22

Erik Murphy

  57. *Phoenix | Erik Murphy | 6-10 | 240 | PF | Florida | 23

Nemanja Nedovic

  58. San Antonio | Nemanja Nedovic | 6-3 | 190 | PG/SG | Serbia | 22

Oleksandr Lypovyy

  59. *Minnesota | Oleksandr Lypovyy | 6-8 | 200 | SF | Ukraine | 22

Amath Mbaye

  60. *Memphis | Amath Mbaye | 6-9 | 215 | SF | Oklahoma | 24
