2019 NBA Mock Draft


# Team Player Pos. Updated 9/14/18 Comp.
1
Hawks
SF HT: 6-7 - WT: 190 - WING: 6-9 - FROM: Duke
Barrett is a gifted talent who can do it all on the basketball court. He can score from three levels, he plays both ends of the court and is a nightmare in the transition game. He has a chance to become one of the leading scorers in the League while impacting all aspects of the game. Barrett is widely considered the no.1 prospect at this stage but the margin between him and the next few guys is not too wide. The Hawks are building a really nice young nucleus and the addition of Barrett could take them to the next level.
Grant Hill

2
Celtics (from Kings)
Zion Williamson SF HT: 6-6 - WT: 272 - WING: 6-10 - FROM: Duke
His hype precedes him. Zion is a once in a generation athlete and one of the most exciting players to watch, at any level, in any sport. His leaping ability at his size is insane and his quickness and power are unmatched. The second part of the Tatum/Fultz trade could be Zion freakin Williamson!
Larry Johnson+

3
Mavs
Nassir Little SF HT: 6-6 - WT: 210 - WING: 7-2 - FROM: UNC
Little is a gamer who plays with an edge and is a truly dynamic athlete with great length. He never takes a possession off and is a warrior on the court who imposes his will on the game. He's got a rapidly developing offensive game with a nice ability to get his own shot off the dribble. The Mavs would do well to put a world class athlete and defender next to Doncic and DSJ.
Kawhi
4 Suns Cameron Reddish SG HT: 6-8 - WT: 205 -WING: 7-1 - FROM: Duke
Reddish has taken his game to the next level and is rising to the top of his draft class. He's nearly impossible to guard one on one and has a killer scoring instinct. He's got ideal size and dominant athletic ability but tends to coast through stretches of the game and needs to bring more energy. The Suns have a bit of a log-jam on the wing but in the era of position-less basketball you can never have too many talented 6-8 ballers.
Joe Johnson

5
Magic
Quentin Grimes PG HT: 6-5 - WT: 200 - WING: NA - FROM: Kansas
Grimes is a powerful combo guard who has broad shoulders and plays with a lot of speed and bounce. He can really get above the rim and is a highlight waiting to happen in the open court. His three point shooting has come around, making him the complete package on the court. The Magic are set in the frontcourt so could reach for a guard.
Eric Gordon
6
Bulls
Bol Bol C HT: 7-2 - WT: 225 - WING: 7-8 - FROM: Oregon
The most intriguing prospect in this class, Bol has elite height/length and surprising coordination. He's a great shot blocker who changes the game on the defensive end and also has a smooth offensive game with range out to 3. He needs to learn to play with a better motor and show some intensity on the court. The Bulls just drafted WCJ and Lauri but could swing for the fences with the uniquely talented Bol Bol.
Rik Smits, Porzingis
7
Cavs*
Sekou Doumbouya PF HT: 6-9 - WT: 215 - WING: 6-11 - FROM: France
A freight train of an athlete with elite physical tools and great defensive potential. Is expanding his offensive game and has shown legit lottery potential. The Cavs just need talent. 1 on 1 interview
bigger OG

8
Nets
SG HT: 6-6 - WT: 195 - WING: 6-10 - FROM: New Albany, IN
A smooth and super-skilled SG prospect who plays an efficient and intelligent game. Has good length and the size to score over most guards. Scores from three levels and is a clutch shot-maker. Romeo and D'Angelo would be an interesting backcourt.
Rip Hamilton

9
Heat
Jontay Porter PF HT: 6-11 - WT: 240 - WING: 7-0 1/4 - FROM: Missouri
The younger brother of Michael Porter, Jontay is a versatile forward who can score inside and out and is an outstanding passer. His three point shot is setting him apart from most of the other PFs in this class and he projects as a great floor-spacing big at the next level. With many talented big men on the board, the Heat go with the more modern, floor-spacing Porter to pair with Bam.
Markieff, Drew Gooden
10
Clippers*
C HT: 6-11 - WT: 234 - WING: 7-3 - FROM: Western Kentucky
Bassey classed up and joined the 2019 draft class, immediately landing in the mock lottery. He's a physical specimen who has all the tools to become a force on the court and he's got a lot of upside to grow into to. He lays a versatile game, has great mobility and isn't afraid to do the dirty work. The Clippers keep their pick if it's in the top 14 so we could see some "player development" from them this year. Bassey would be a nice addition as they look to rebuild the frontcourt.
Clint Capela
11
Hornets
Daniel Gafford C HT: 6-11 - WT: 234 - WING: 7-2 - FROM: Arkansas
Gafford is not only an exceptional athlete for his size but he plays with great energy and really brings it on the court. He changes ends exceptionally well and is well suited to the modern NBA with his speed and shot blocking ability. Look for Gafford to showcase an improved offensive game in his second college season. Gafford would be a great fit on this Hornets roster.
Marcus Camby
12
Knicks
Nazreon Reid PF HT: 6-10 - WT: 240 - WING: 7-3 - FROM: LSU
Reid is a big, strong, old school forward with a high skill level and slick ball handling ability. A very heady player who can really pass the ball for a big. The Knicks added Knox and Robinson but could use another talented frontcourt player, especially with a talent like Reid still on the board at 12.
Nene, Al Jefferson

13
Celtics*
Kris Wilkes SF HT: 6-8 - WT: 200 - WING: 6-10 - FROM: UCLA
A good open court athlete and advanced mid-range scorer who plays with an edge. Has a silky smooth offensive game, a quick, high release on his jumper and nice length/size for the position. The Celtics draft another wing, go figure.
Kris Middleton
14
Pistons
Louis King SF HT: 6-8 - WT: 205 -WING: 7-0 - FROM: Oregon
A fast rising prospect with nice length and athleticism, who can really score the ball. Scores from three levels and has ideal NBA size on the wing. The Pistons need to add some firepower.
Jeff Green/Caron Butler
15 Nuggets O'Shae Brissett SF HT: 6-8 - WT: 210 - WING: 6-11 - FROM: Syracuse
A strong and versatile wing who excels at rebounding, defending and making hustle plays. Has a nose for the basket, can really score the ball and is a long and fluid athlete.
Walt Williams
16
Bucks
Tyler Herro SG HT: 6-6 - WT: 210 - WING: 6-10 - FROM: Kentucky
A natural born shooter who puts constant pressure on the defense with his scoring ability and crafty play. Has a nose for the bucket and plays with intensity.
Rex Chapman
17
Pacers
Keldon Johnson SG HT: 6-6 - WT: 205 - WING: 6-8 - FROM: Kentucky
A SG with ideal size, a picture-perfect jumper and a smooth offensive game. Well built and has a lot of natural strength to go along with quick-twitch athleticism. Has a great in-between game and a scorers mentality.
Xavier Henry, poor man's Booker
18 Pelicans DeAndre Hunter SF HT: 6-7 - WT: 222 - WING: 7-0 - FROM: Virginia
A versatile defender and team-first player with upside. Can score from three levels and has an NBA frame.
RHJ
19
Spurs
Simisola Shittu PF HT: 6-10 - WT: 225 - WING: 7-0 - FROM: Vanderbilt
A long and fluid athlete who excels in transition and has a lot of upside, Shittu can bang in the paint and has a lot of versatility and play-making ability as well. Recovering from an ACL injury.
Donyell Marshall

20
Blazers
E.J. Montgomery PF HT: 6-10 - WT: 215 - WING: 7-1 - FROM: Kentucky
An advanced offensive talent with great length and mobility. Can make plays off the bounce and has a fluid game. Needs to add strength and play with more consistent intensity but has a lot of upside.
Darius Miles
21
Jazz
Bruno Fernando C HT: 6-10 - WT: 245 - WING: 7-4 - FROM: Maryland
A rugged NBA level defender who is starting to put it together on the offensive end. Shows flashes of potential and plenty of upside but lacks consistency. Has all the tools to develop into an NBA starter down the road.
Emeka Okafor

22
Wizards
Rui Hachimura SF HT: 6-8 - WT: 225 - WING: 7-2 - FROM: Gonzaga (Japan)
A gifted athlete with good strength and body control. Still learning the game and figuring out how good he can be.
Wilson Chandler

23 Lakers Jaylen Hands PG HT: 6-3 - WT: 170 - WING: 6-4 - FROM: UCLA
Hands is a big time athlete and great dunker at the PG position and he plays with a high level of intensity. Lacks strength on defense and is not yet consistent shooting the ball.
Gilbert Arenas, Keyon Dooling

24 Thunder Jordan Brown PF HT: 6-11 - WT: 205 - WING: 6-11 - FROM: Nevada
A long and athletic power forward with a smooth offensive game. Can score with either hand and has very good touch around the basket. If he can fill out his frame and get a lot stronger he could be a lottery selection.
Kevon Looney
25
T-Wolves
PG HT: 6-3 - WT: 185 - WING: 6-7 - FROM: Kentucky
A true lead guard who plays with great balance and elite decision making. Doesn't have ideal size and will have to show that he's a capable three point shooter.
Elfrid Payton +
26 76ers Sagaba Konate PF HT: 6-8 - WT: 260 - WING: NA - FROM: West Virginia (Mali)
An extremely powerful 6-8 PF/C who has a thick frame and good length. Plays bigger than his height and is a great shot blocker, with a developing offensive game. An explosive leaper.
Ben Wallace
27 Raptors Darius Bazley SF HT: 6-9 - WT: 200 - WING: 6-11 - FROM: USA
Bazley's story keeps getting stranger, as he's now decided to take the Mitchell Robinson route to the NBA and train for the draft outside of the spotlight. He's a versatile talent who can do a little bit of everything on the court and has nice length for position. The draft combine and workouts will determine his draft stock.
Robert Covington +
28
Celtics
Eric Paschall SF HT: 6-9 - WT: 255 - WING: NA - FROM: Villanova
Paschall has steadily improved each year and become a consistent all around player who brings great energy and does all the dirty work. He's shown the ability to hit the 3, a skill that will make or break his NBA career.
Kenny Thomas
29 Rockets Luka Samanic PF HT: 6-10 - WT: 215 - WING: 7-0 - FROM: Croatia
A stretch 4 with good size, length and high level scoring ability. Samanic is a plus athlete with legit NBA ability. 1 on 1 interview
a bouncy Dario Saric

30
Warriors
Lindell Wigginton PG HT: 6-2 - WT: 190 - WING: 6-3 - FROM: Iowa State
A compact and strong scoring point guard with big time shot-making ability. Has a great feel for the game and high BBIQ.
