2019 NBA Mock Draft


 
# Team Player Updated 6/20/19 4:08pm pt Comp.
1 Pelicans Zion Williamson PF - HT: 6-6 - WT: 272 - WING: 6-10 - FROM: Duke - Fr.
Zion already got a whole bunch of new running mates (Lonzo, BI, Hart), plus the no.4 pick. The Pelicans will be must-watch TV next season.
air Barkley

2 Grizzlies Ja Morant
PG - HT: 6-3 - WT: 175 - WING: NA - FROM: Murray State - So.
If the Grizzlies stay at no.2 Morant should be the pick but the trade rumors are swirling.
taller Iverson,
turbo D'Angelo
3 Knicks SF - HT: 6-6 - WT: 190 - WING: 6-9 - FROM: Duke (Canada) - Fr.
NY will consider Culver and Garland but it'll be too hard to pass on an alpha dog like Barrett.
Grant Hill, Angry Wiggins

4 Hawks (from Pels via Lakers) DeAndre Hunter SF - HT: 6-7 - WT: 222 - WING: 7-0 - FROM: Virginia - So.
The Hawks make the move up, apparently targeting DeAndre Hunter. He's a perfect fit with the Hawks young core.
Mikal Bridges
5 Cavs SG - HT: 6-6 3/4 - WT: 194 - WING: 6-9 1/2 - FROM: Texas Tech - So.
Culver is a great fit next to Sexton, giving the Cavs a dynamic young duo to build around.
Kendall Gill, almost Paul Pierce
6 T-Wolves (from Suns) Darius Garland PG - HT: 6-2 - WT: 170 - WING: 6-3 - FROM: Vanderbilt - Fr.
The Wolves trade up to get a pg. Garland brings a nice scoring punch from the outside to help take the load off of KAT.
bigger Jeff Teague
7 Bulls Coby White PG - HT: 6-4 3/4 - WT: 191 - WING: 6-5 - FROM: UNC - Fr.
The Bulls will take the last remaining of Garland and Coby White. It's time to move on from Dunn and White would bring new excitement to the backcourt.
Cuttino Mobley, Jamal Murray
8 Pelicans Jaxson Hayes C - HT: 6-11 1/2 - WT: 219 - WING: 7-3 1/2 - FROM: Texas - Fr.
The Pelicans trade back and could address a glaring need at center with this pick. Most mocks have Hayes lower but we see vast potential and a player who is just scratching the surface.
Hassan Whiteside+
9 Wizards Sekou Doumbouya PF - HT: 6-9 - WT: 215 - WING: 6-11 - FROM: France - Int.00
A strong second half of the season has Sekou on the rise. The Wizards need to go with the best player available and that's Sekou. 1on1 interview
bigger OG Anunoby, Giannis lite
10 Hawks (from Mavs) Cameron Reddish SG - HT: 6-8 - WT: 208 -WING: 7-0 1/2 - FROM: Duke - Fr.
Cam would land in a good situation in ATL, being able to play off the ball next to a talented passer like Trae Young.
more athletic Joe Johnson
11 Suns (from T-Wolves) Brandon Clarke PF - HT: 6-8 1/4- WT: 207 - WING: 6-8 1/4- FROM: Gonzaga (Canada) - Jr.
The Suns trade down and could be targetting Clarke who would be a great, high-energy fit next to Ayton. Article
Kenyon Martin
12 Hornets Goga Bitadze C - HT: 6-11 - WT: 250 - WING: 7-2 - FROM: Int. Georgia - Int.
Goga might be the next Jokic (or at least the next Vucevic) which is just what the Hornets need. Goga could go as high as top 10.
Nikola Vucevic
13 Heat Nickeil Alexander-Walker PG - HT: 6-5 1/2- WT: 204 - WING: 6-9 1/2- FROM: Virginia Tech - So.
The Heat love hard-nosed defensive minded players and NAW fits the bill. He's NBA ready and could play big minutes early for the Heat.
SGA

14 Celtics (from Kings) Tyler Herro SG - HT: 6-6 - WT: 192 - WING: 6-3 1/4- FROM: Kentucky - Fr.
Herro enters the League at a perfect time, when outside shooting is at a premium. If this pick stays with the Celtics, Herro would be a nice addition.
Rex Chapman
15 Pistons Nassir Little SF - HT: 6-6 - WT: 224 - WING: 7-1 1/4- FROM: UNC - Fr.
Little has been showing well during the combine/draft process. He projects as a high level role player with All-Star upside. He'd be a nice fit on the wing for the Pistons.
wealthy man's Jeremy Grant
16
Magic
Mfiondu Kabengele
PF - HT: 6-10 1/4- WT: 250 - WING: 7-3 - FROM: Florida State - So.
Not a position of need for the Magic but they could go best player available here and take the late-blooming, intriguing-upside player Kabengele.
Serge Ibaka
17
Pelicans (from Hawks)
Kevin Porter Jr. SG - HT: 6-5 1/2 - WT: 213 - WING: 6-9 - FROM: USC - Fr.
An enigma. Porter Jr. has a boat-load of talent but some question marks as well. The Pelicans could swing for the fences here.
Lonnie Walker
18 Pacers Paul Washington Jr. PF - HT: 6-8 - WT: 230 -WING: 7-2 1/4 - FROM: Kentucky - So.
P.J. is a bit undersized but makes up for it with great length and toughness. A Pacers type of player. The team needs help at guard but shouldn't pass on value
David West
19
Spurs
Rui Hachimura PF- HT: 6-8 - WT: 225 - WING: 7-2 - FROM: Gonzaga (Japan) - Jr.
Rui has some tantalizing upside and has shown steady improvement from year to year. The Spurs love to mold raw talent into NBA players.
Wilson Chandler +, Milsap
20
Celtics (from Clippers)
Nicolas Claxton
PF - HT: 6-11 - WT: 220 - WING: NA - FROM: Georgia - So.
The Celtics will need help up front with Horford out the door and Claxton brings a lot to the table. He plays both ends of the floor and can keep up in a fast paced game.
Jason Thompson+, WCS
21
Thunder
Cam Johnson SF - HT: 6-8 1/2- WT: 205 - WING: 6-10 - FROM: UNC - Sr.
The Thunder are in win-now mode and could use a ready-to-play, high BBIQ baller like Cam Johnson. He's got a skill set that fits today's NBA perfectly.
a wet Justin Jackson
22
Celtics
Keldon Johnson SG - HT: 6-6 - WT: 211 - WING: 6-9 1/4 - FROM: Kentucky - Fr.
The Celtics reload continues. And the depth of this first round is on full display with a talent like Johnson falling to the twenties.
Xavier Henry's upside
23 Grizzlies (from Jazz) Bol Bol C - HT: 7-2 1/2- WT: 208 - WING: 7-7 - FROM: Oregon - Fr.
Bol is one of the top talents in the draft but concerns about his health (short term and long term) and about his love for the game could cause him to drop a bit during the draft.
Rik Smits, Porzingis
24 76ers Darius Bazley SF - HT: 6-9 - WT: 208 - WING: 7-0 - FROM: USA
Bazley is one of the mystery men of the draft after sitting out a year but he had a nice draft combine. He's a smooth wing with loads of natural talent.
Lord Covington
25
Blazers
Bruno Fernando C - HT: 6-10 1/4- WT: 237 - WING: 7-3 1/4- FROM: Maryland (Angola) - So.
Bruno has too much natural talent to fall far on draft day. The Blazers need to bolster the front line and could use a defensive stopper like Bruno.
modern Emeka Okafor
26 Cavs (from Rockets) PF - HT: 6-8 - WT: 230 - WING: 7-1 - FROM: Nebraska - Jr.
A bit undersized but has a lot of bounce, great mobility and developing a perimeter game. Had a great draft combine, flashing his open-court talent.
James Johnson
27 Nets (from Nuggets) KZ Okpala SF - HT: 6-9 1/2- WT: 209 - WING: 7-1 3/4- FROM: Stanford - So.
KZ has the tools and talent of a lottery pick and would be a steal for the Nets if he falls this far.
Brandon Ingram lite, Stacey Augman
28
Warriors
SG - HT: 6-6 - WT: 195 - WING: 6-11 - FROM: Indiana - Fr.
Romeo had a tough season at Indiana but all the talent is there and his upside is intriguing. If his shot pans out the Warriors could be getting a steal.
Rip Hamilton, Allen Crabbe
29 Spurs (from Raptors) Luka Samanic PF - HT: 6-11 - WT: 227 - WING: 6-10 1/2 - FROM: Croatia - Int.
A strong showing at the combine has Samanic back on the first round radar. He's a multi-dimensional scorer with nice athleticism. 1on1 interview
a bouncy Dario Saric
30 Pistons (from Bucks) Grant Williams PF - HT: 6-7 1/2- WT: 240 - WING: 6-9 3/4 - FROM: Tennessee - Jr.
The Pistons made a nice move and will be able to add a good player to their roster at the end of the first round.
Draymond, P.J. Tucker
