NBA Mock Draft

2007 2008 2009 2010 2011 2012 2013 2014 2015 2016 2017 Midampub Prospects DC Pro Sports

Updated: 12/21/2017

DeAndre Ayton, C - Arizona The Hawks need star power and putting Ayton next to Collins would make a pretty good frontcourt.
Marvin Bagley III, PF - Duke Dirk is near the end. Bagley has star power and is the offensive player able to play next to Smith and Barnes as the Mavs rebuild.
Luka Doncic, SG - Slovenia Doncic can play with anyone on this team and excel. His outside shooting should help extend Gasol's effectiveness and replace Evans who is likely to walk.
Trae Young, PG - Oklahoma PG has quickly become the weakness of the roster. Young could step in immediately and provide an upgrade.
Michael Porter, SF - Missouri Porters injury allows him to drop into the Bulls lap. The core is building back quicker than anyone thought with Porter, Markkanen, Dunn, and eventually LaVine.
Collin Sexton, PG - Alabama They will need to make a decision around Payton. Even if they resign him, they could use better depth there.
Mohamed Bamba, C - Texas There is a lot of potential up front for the Kings but none of them have taken control. The defense is still too poor and Bamba is an elite defender.
Jaren Jackson Jr, PF - Michigan State Williams and Howard are aging. Kaminsky and Zeller are nice but not starters, so they need to prep the future.
Miles Bridges, SF - Michigan State A versatile player who can back up James, Love, or Crowder and play alongside any of the them. He brings some young legs to the rotation.
Kevin Knox, SF - Kentucky There is depth everywhereon this roster. Knox can build alongside these guys and provide additional depth at the three with Covington.
Wendell Carter, C - Duke I'll assume Jordan either gets traded or walks after the season. The Clippers have very little after him.
Robert Williams, PF-C - Texas A&M Favors has topped out and isn't capable of being a go to guy on a roster. He is a free agent and the Jazz may decide to let him walk. This would be his replacement.
Mikal Bridges, SG - Villanova Redick is on a 1 year deal. Bridges can help fill in and bring a perimeter presence.
Trevon Duval, PG - Duke They need to play better defense. And they will have potentially a lot of holes. Assuming they can keep Cousins they will need to address the backcourt or three.
Jarred Vanderbilt, SF - Kentucky The threes have been horrible. They need to upgrade the position.
Lonnie Walker, SG - Miami Will they be able to resign all their free agents? Whether they do or not, they could use some fresh blood at the two.
Troy Brown, SF - Oregon Both Barton and Chandler can be a free agent. Chandler is the likley one to let walk but Barton may ask for too much.
Brandon McCoy, C - UNLV Len and Monroe will be free agents and neither is likely to resign. Chandler can be out next season. McCoy could be a defensive presence they need in the middle.
Gary Trent Jr, SG - Duke Courtney Lee is 32. There isn't much at the position after him. Trent could be a main piece of the rebuild.
Chimezie Metu, PF - USC They need to start worrying about the middle. They have nothing after Gortat.
Bruce Brown, SG - Miami Protection against losing Bradley.
Lagerald Vick, SG - Kansas Backcourt depth is necessary and they could use some upgrades. But the core of this team is developing.
Dzanan Musa, SF - INT They could use some fresh legs at the 1 or 3, Dzanan is the best option here.
Hamidou Diallo, SG - Kentucky Bazemore shouldn't be starting. At some point they will need an upgrade while moving Bazemore to the bench.
Mitchell Robinson, C - USA A bit of an unknown, but Robinson has size which is something the Spurs will need soon.
Bruno Fernando, PF - Maryland A small lineup isn't doing poorly but they need more size. Fernando will need some time but the Nets aren't turning things around quickly.
Allonzo Trier, SG - Arizona The backcourt is old. They need to start getting some youth in there to continue there success. Trier is a shooter who can stretch the floor for James and Thomas.
Moritz Wagner, PF - Michigan The celtics need a rim protector but they also need some scoring punch up front. Wagner can help stretch the floor for Irving and Horford off the bench.
Nick Richards, C - Kentucky Zaza is slowing down. The Warriors death lineup still needs size at times. Richards will bring it and he can take his time developing.
Tyus Battle, SF - Syracuse He fits right in at the three. He has teh ability to knock down the three and athleticism to defend the position.
