Pick 1: Philadelphia 76ers select Markelle Fultz, PG , WASHINGTON. It is really a toss up between Fultz and Ball but the 76ers need playmaking and that is what Fultz brings to the table.
Pick 2: Boston Celtics via Brooklyn select Josh Jackson, SF, KANSAS. Jackson is questionably the most talented player in this draft. He can shoot the 3, get into the post, and play stellar on ball defense Even though it’s only the 2nd pick the Celtics will have a steal in this draft.
Pick 3: Dallas Mavericks select Lonzo Ball, PG, UCLA. If Lonzo was the 1st pick then Fultz would be the pick here. Lonzo would thrive in this offense with Harrison Barnes. He is decently a great shooter as seen at Chino Hills and UCLA games.
Pick 4: Phoenix Suns select Jayson Tatum, SF, DUKE. The Suns need a solid forward with the future of Warren up in the air. And some scoring along side Booker.
Pick 5: Miami Heat select Malik Monk, PG, KENTUCKY. Coming into the NBA Monk is the best scorer arguably. Having an almost 50 point outing. Having a pick and roll with Whiteside and good perimeter defense with Winslow. It won’t be right away, but Monk may well be the best player in this draft.
Pick 6: Minnesota Timberwolves select Harry Giles, PF, DUKE. Harry has been one of the most hyped player in this draft so far. And the hype may be to much for him. Averaging 0.5 points and 1.0 rebounds it’s been a disappointing season so far. But the Wolves see potential and Giles has that.
Pick 7: Philadelphia 76ers via LA Lakers select Ivan Rabb, PF, CALIFORNIA. Rabb doesn’t get much spot light for not playing in bigger schools, but he has talent and that is what the 76ers team needs.
Pick 8: New Orleans Pelicans select Dennis Smith Jr, PG, NORTH CAROLINA STATE. One of the quickest players in this draft and a decent offensive player. Smith is who the Pelicans need. Holiday playing decent and Davis needing a lot of help. Smith is an obvious choice here.
Pick 9: Portland Trail Blazers select Miles Bridges, SF, Michigan State. Nobody expected the Blazers to be at the bottom of the West. And most certainty out of the playoffs. But since they’re here, mine as well get a star.
Pick 10: Denver Nuggets select Jonathan Isaac, SF, Florida State. No much about Isaac, but he’s one of the top prospects and also being from Florida State such as last years pick Malik Beasley.
Pick 11: Detroit Pistons select D’Aaron Fox, PG, KENTUCKY. An athletic freak, who can get open to hit the 3 or drive to the basket. And an act for getting other shooter open. Peremiter defence is his specialty.
Pick 12: Orlando Magic select Grayson Allen, SG, DUKE. A gifted shooter and this magic team is in need of that. Doesn’t get a great reputation for on court actions. Allen would fit in just right with this Magic team.
Pick 13: Washington Wizards select Josh Hart SG, VILLANOVA. Hart is the type of player who can do it all. Can hit the open and contested 3. Can drive to basket with ease. And a natural scorer which Washington needs. Injuries to Beal and his history with injuries could make this a excellent pick. A reach on draft day, but give him time and he could be a solid starter.
Pick 14: Indians Pacers select Frank Ntilikina SG, BELGIUM. An overseas player with not much tape to look at. This is a Kristaps treatment. Overseas player taken high for potential. Maybe he’ll play overseas on for a few more years to develope. But expect him to make an impact if he stays and plays.
Pick 15: Chicago Bulls select Marques Bolden, C, DUKE. Solid big man which the Bulls need after Noah left. Expect him to start day 1.
Pick 16: Milwaukee Bucks select Bam Adebayo, PF, Kentucky. Lengthy big man which the bucks have plenty of. But the talent still available at this pick is hard to pass up on.
Pick 17: Atlanta Hawks select Jaron Blossomgame, SF, CLEMSON.
Pick 18: Chicago Bulls select Terrence Ferguson, SG. Great perimeter defender, with his lengthy body and can hit the open shot. May play overseason for a few seasons.
Pick 19: New York Knicks select OG Anunoby, SF, Indiana. Soldier defensive player with a talent of getting to the basket with ease.
Pick 20: Charlotte Hornets select Lauri Markkanen PF, Arizona.
Pick 21: Denver Nuggets select Jonathan Jeanne, C, FRANCE. Only 1 of few big man in this draft who actually play like big men. And that is just what Denver need. A big man who stays in the post.
Picks 22: Utah Jazz select VJ Beachem, SF, Norte Dame. A 3 and D player.
Pick 23: Brooklyn Nets select Melo Trimble, PG, MARYLAND. A playmaker is what the Nets need. And Trimble can run this offense with Lopez in that pick and roll. As seen with Diamond Stone who plays similar as Lopez. Trimble is also going to get the Malcolm Brogdon treatment. A talented player that stayed longer in college and is the reason for his fall.
Pick 24: Oklahoma City Thunder select Isaiah Hartenstein, PF, GERMANY.
Pick 25: Toronto Raptors select Thomas Bryant, C, Indiana. A post player that can play well along side the Raptors wing players.
Pick 26: Houston Rockets select Nigel Hayes, PF, Wisconsin.
Pick 27: Toronto Raptors select Jalen Brunson, PG, VILLANOVA. Lowery getting older and Jospeh not showing improvement, the Raptors may be in the need of a guard late in the draft.
Pick 28: Cleveland Cavaliers select Justin Jackson, SF , North Carolina. The Cavs don’t have any solid back up forwards and Jackson could step in right away with a team full of veterans.
Pick 29: San Antonio Spurs select Tyler Lyndon, PF, Syracuse.
Pick 30: Utah Jazz select Sviatoslav Mykailiuk, SG, Kansas
