2007 2008 2009 2010 2011 2012 2013 2014 2015 2016 2017 2019 Midampub Prospects

Updated: 1/5/2019

Karl-Anthony Towns, C - Kentucky They need some interior defense. Adding an inside presence around the young talent they have could push the Wolves to the top sooner than later.
Jahlil Okafor, C - Duke The thin shaky frontcourt of the Lakers will get a huge shot in the arm adding Okafor and getting a healthy Julius Randle.
D'Angelo Russell, PG - Ohio State The Sixers need a young playmaker and are set up front. They have a decision to make which guard they want. They likely take the shooter. .
Willie Cauley-Stein, C - Kentucky The Knicks need a lot. The start in the middle by building up the defense.
Kristaps Porzingis, PF - Latvia They have inside play on offense but they need a stretch four to open things up. This just happens to fill a rim protection need to.
Emmanuel Mudiay, PG - China They have had decent PG play last season but need a better presence on both ends.
Justise Winslow, SF - Duke They could lose most of their depth after next season on the wing. They will need to prepare and get a player with huge upside.
Stanley Johnson, SF - Arizona If Monroe leaves as expected there would be a need at the four too. But the three is in serious need of an upgrade and Johnson is ready now.
Mario Hezonja, SF - Croatia Henderson isn't the answer and can leave this offseason. Stephenson was not very good and can leave after next. They need some punch here who can consistently hit shots.
Kelly Oubre, SF - Kansas The season hinges on the return of health to Bosh and the resigning of Wade. If that happens, replacing Deng is the biggest need.
Myles Turner, C - Texas If Hibbert moves on, the Pacers will need someone to protect the rim.
Trey Lyles, PF - Kentucky Lyles could end up being one of the best players in this draft.
Frank Kaminsky, C - Wisconsin Len hasn't really panned out due to a lack of health and lack of consistency. Kaminsky will offer an inside presence offensively day one.
Jerian Grant, G - Notre Dame Waiters is a bench player. Lamb hasn't panned out. Morrow isn't the answer or future. Grant can play either position alongside Westbrook.
Sam Dekker, SF - Wisconsin Dekker is an Atlanta style player who will fit right in with thier team.
Devin Booker, SG - Kentucky The Celtics need better three point shooting. Booker's game is all about shooting the three.
Kevon Looney, SF - UCLA Looney is another long athletic versatile player the Bucks add to teh rotation. He should be able to play both forward positions.
Cameron Payne, PG - Murray State The Rockets need another ball handler who can create offense for himself or others to take some pressure off Harden.
Bobby Portis, PF - Arkansas Nene's career is winding down even though he is still semi productive. The SEC player of the year could ease into the rotation.
Christian Wood, PF - UNLV The biggest need is at the four. Unless bigger changes come this offseason.
Tyus Jones, PG - Duke The backcourt can be shreaded in the offseason. PG will be a huge need as the Mavericks try to assemble one last title contender for Dirk.
Terry Rozier, PG - Louisville SF will be an area of need but they have to protect themselves from another Rose injury.
Montrezl Harrell, PF - Louisville Even if Aldridge returns the quality and depth up front has to improve. Harrell should be a solid defender day one while he develops offensively.
Rondae Hollis-Jefferson, SF- Arizona Delon Wright would be a great pick here to fill in at both backcourt spots. And he could work if Smith or Shumpert leave. I think Blatt loves Delly too much however to bring in his replacement. So they go defensive behind LeBron to try to limit his minutes.
Delon Wright, G - Utah Wright culd play either backcourt position and improve the quality of the two.
Chris McCullough, PF - Syracuse Most of the frontcourt could leave. Some fresh bodies here need to be brought in and developed sooner than later This is a great value pick here.
RJ Hunter, SG - Georgia State The frontcourt has been addressed earlier. Now the Lakers bring in a great young scorer behind Kobe.
Rakeem Christmas, PF - Syracuse With Bass and Jerebko free agents the celtics will need some developmental youth up front. Preferably a shot blocker.
Justin Anderson, SF - Virginia A young wing to backup Johnson or run next to him. A point guard would make sense here too if one of the better rated PGs drop here.
Guillermo Hernangomez, C - Sevilla The Warriors are set in the backcourt. Draymond Green could leave if he wants more money than the Warriors are willing to give. If he does they could look to replace his minutes.

The following Mock Draft is based on how Midampub predicts the draft will unfold. Not based on midampub's rankings of the best prospects.
