2007 2008 2009 2010 2011 2012 2013 2014 2015 2016 Midampub Prospects DC Pro Sports

Updated: 4/9/2017

Jabari Parker, SF - Duke The injury to Embiid has to eliminate him from this pick. Parker is a better fit for teh Cavs than Wiggins.
Andrew Wiggins, SF - Kansas The Bucks need help now. Wiggins can be a good two way player for them with the ceiling to be a future star.
Joel Embiid, C - Kansas This is a good spot for the Sixers to take a chance. They have Noel and the 10th pick to help them immediately so waiting a little while on Embiid is doable.
Dante Exum, PG - Australia The Magic need to retool their backcourt. Exum could play either position and open up numerous other moves.
Noah Vonleh, PF - Indiana This should improve the interior defense while giving the team a nice perimeter player. It could allow the team to move Kanter in the near future.
Aaron Gordon, PF - Arizona Gordon should bring a better rim protecting presence from the forward spot while helping on the glass. He should be explosive like Blake Griffin with Rondo hitting him on the break.
Julius Randle, PF - Kentucky The Lakers will likley be without Pau Gasol this season. They need a big man to help rebuild. Randle brings a lot of versatility.
Marcus Smart, PG - Oklahoma State The Kings need a floor leader who can get the ball to teh scorers and make life easier on everyone.
Doug McDermott, SF - Creighton They were one of the worst shooting teams in the league. McDermott has the ability to knock down shots.
Nik Stauskas, SG - Michigan If he can get open, he is one of the best shooters in the draft.
Gary Harris, SG - Michigan State The Nuggets can't rely on Randy Foye for another season let alone as the future.
Adreian Payne, PF - Michigan State Orlando needs a little more athleticism and size up front.
James Young, SF - Kentucky They are another poor shooting team. With Rubio kicking the ball, they need someone who can catch and shoot.
Zach LaVine, G - UCLA An incredible athlete who can rely on his shot until he gets comfortable with the NBA.
Rodney Hood, SF - Duke This could be a nice steal here. Hood can play the two or three and bring a fantastic scoring perimeter presence.
Elfrid Payton, PG - Louisiana Laf I am not buying that Payton will shoot into the lottery. His shot simply has never been there. But Chicago needs PG help and insurance. This would be a nice time to get Payton.
T.J. Warren, SF - NC State The Celtics finished 26th in points per game last season. They need someone who can fill it up.
Kyle Anderson, SF - UCLA This will be interesting on how he will fit in the NBA. He could be extremely dangerous as a point-forward helping the second worst team in the NBA in assists move the ball.
Jusuf Nurkic, C - Bosnia If Payne is still around he could go here. The Bulls need some inside help especially if they amnesty Boozer.
Shabazz Napier, PG - UConn They would need a PG if they lose Lowry and Vasquez. Napier brings big game experience and could handle the job immediately.
Glenn Robinson III, SF - Michigan The Thunder could use some scoring punch off the bench.
Jerami Grant, SF - Syracuse Johnson is okay but Prince is near the end. They need some potential youth here.
Jordan Adams, SG - UCLA If they don't get Hayward back they will need more quality at the position. Even with him, they could use someone who can hit some shots consistently.
P.J. Hairston, SG - Tex Legends Another shooter should help make everyone better.
Tyler Ennis, PG, - Syracuse Although not terrible, this is the weak link of the unit. They need someone who can defend. Finishing 23rd in the league in PPG is unacceptable if they want to contend for a title.
Mitch McGary, PF - Michigan This pick could go in so many different directions depending on what the B3 do. If they all resign, the Heat need a big man or two,
Vasilje Micic, G - Serbia It is unlikley the Suns draft and keep three picks in the first round. A foreign player they can stash may be the strategy.
Clint Capela, PF - Switzerland The Clippers could use some interior help both defensively and on the glass.
K.J. McDaniels, SG - Clemson They need to improve the backcourt depth and defensive potential in case Westbrook misses more time. They could lose Sefolosha and Butler this season and Jackson next season.
Bogdan Bogdanovic, SG - Serbia They can lose a ton of backcourt depth after next season. They need to start preparing.
