1
76ers
6-10 LSU Simmons would give the Sixers an elite play-maker. He'd join a young and talented front court while seeing minutes at PG as well. A unique player with superstar potential but the type of player that only works with the right pieces around him. More
Magic/Draymond
2
Lakers* 6-9 Duke A sweet shooter with great length but a skinny frame, Ingram is a nice fit on the wing in L.A. He brings unique scoring ability and a versatile game to Luke Walton's team. More
Paul George/KD

3
Celtics*
6-3 Providence Big time talent who can lock it up on D and has explosive offensive ability. Dunn could join a crowded backcourt in Boston or look for this pick to be traded. More
longer Eric Bledsoe
4
Suns
6-10
Washington A natural talent with great hops and a smooth jumper. Rising up draft boards after strong workouts. Would fit well in the young Suns line up. More
Markieff/Blake
5
T-Wolves*
Jamal Murray PG 6-5 Kentucky Combo guard who would give the Wolves the best shooter in the draft to help space the floor for KAT. Murray is limited as a defender but has big time scoring ability. More
Deron Williams/C.J.
6
Pelicans
Dragan Bender PF 7-0 Croatia Agile big man with a nice perimeter game and exceptional length. Has unique passing ability for a 7-footer and can fill it up from outside. Bender could space the floor for AD. More
Pau
7
Nuggets*
6-7 California High upside player with great athletic ability, good work ethic but limited skill. Brown would fit well on the wing for the Nuggets. More
Harrison Barnes
8
Kings
6-5 Oklahoma A dead-eye three point shooter who can really stretch the defense. Would help space the floor for Boogie but could be a bust like past Kings SGs. More
KCP/Brad Beal
9
Raptors*
7-0 Kentucky Highly skilled big man who has a ton of upside but is still figuring out how to put it all together. This would be a swing for the fences type of pick for the Raptors. More
softer Myles Turner
10
Bucks
Wade Baldwin PG 6-3 Vanderbilt A high level athlete with long arms and big time ability. Can play on or off the ball. Fits the Bucks mold of long athletic players. More
longer Monta Ellis
11
Magic Jakob Poeltl
C
7-1 Utah A prototypical center who can score in the paint. A boring pick but a good value. Poeltl should have a long, solid career and could surprise to the upside. More
Alex Len
12
Hawks*
Malachi Richardson SF 6-6 Syracuse Fast rising prospect who can really score the ball. Would give the Hawks more firepower on the wing. More
Willie Burton/Mo Pete
13
Suns*
6-10 Gonzaga Son of the legend, Sabonis is highly skilled and fundamentally sound but lacks lift and length. Could be a reach in the lottery but fills a need for the Suns. More
Tyler Hansbrough
14
Bulls
Dejounte Murray PG 6-5 Washington Combo guard who can light it up on the offensive end and has an aggressive style of play. The Bulls youth movement is on. More
Larry Hughes
15
Nuggets*
6-7 Turkey Talented with the ball and a high level scorer, Korkmaz would give the Nuggets a much needed shooter on the wing. More
Kevin Martin
16
Celtics
Deyonta Davis PF 6-10 Michigan State Projects as a high level shot blocker and defender and shows flashes of offensive talent. More
Derrick Favors
17
Grizzlies
6-10 Marquette An offensive minded forward who has a nice handle and good looking jumper. If he falls this far it would be a steal for the Griz. More
Tom Gugliotta
18
Pistons
6-6 Michigan State A well rounded player who is solid in all aspects of the game. Should carve out a nice role in the League. More
higher IQ Evan Turner
19
Nuggets*
6-5 Florida State A smooth and efficient offensive talent who would be a nice addition at SG for the Nuggets. More
Allen Crabbe/Eddie Jones
20
Pacers
6-7 Baylor A versatile player who can lock it up on the defensive end and is pro-ready. More
DeMarre Carroll
21
Hawks
C
7-1 Croatia Big bodied center with a nice scoring touch. Defends, rebounds and knows how to use his frame. More
Tiago Splitter
22
Hornets
PF 6-11 Croatia Fast rising prospect who combines great length with nice scoring ability. Does the dirty work well and projects as a solid role player. More
longer David Lee
23
Celtics 6-6 St. Joes Highly skilled, natural scorer with good strength and athleticism but struggles from three point land. More
Aaron Afflalo
24
76ers*
6-6 France Has all the tools and plays both ends of the floor. Raw but full of potential. More
Rick Fox
25
Clippers
6-9
New Mexico State A hard-working forward who plays both ends of the floor and has great length. His all around game and versatility make him an intriguing prospect. More
Serge Ibaka
26
76ers*
Patrick McCaw
6-7 UNLV Long guard with a nice looking jumper and solid mid range game. Needs to add strength.
Nick Young
27

28
Suns*
6-9
Providence Strong combo forward who can score from three levels. More

Tyrus Thomas
