1. Cleveland - Andrew Wiggins SF Kansas
2. Milwaukee - Jabari Parker SF Duke
3. Philadelphia - Joel Embiid C Kansas
4. Orlando - Dante Exum PG Australia
5. Utah - Julius Randle PF Kentucky
6. Boston - Aaron Gordon PF Arizona
If Gordon was just a little bit bigger I think he would be in the conversation with Wiggins for the top spot, but as it is after measuring at the NBA combine, he remains as a smaller Blake Griffin in my eyes. Still, being the smaller version of one of the Top 5-10 best players in the NBA is a great thing and it should get Gordon off of the board in the first 10 picks even though he is undersized for a power forward and doesn't have excellent ball skills for a small forward coming out of college.
The Celtics are in complete rebuilding mode and should simply take the best available player at any position at this spot and I believe that Gordon has the most upside of anyone left here. Gordon might not become a star right away, but he has the potential to become the next Blake Griffin as an athletic power forward that can attack the rim and use his athleticism to rebound and if he keeps improving his perimeter game he could also turn into an All-Star small forward.
7. LALakers - Marcus Smart PG Oklahoma State
8. Sacramento - Noah Vonleh PF Indiana
9. Charlotte - Doug McDermott SF Creighton
10. Philadelphia - Gary Harris SG Michigan State
11. Denver - Nik Stauskas SG Michigan
12. Orlando - Dario Saric SF Croatia
13. Minnesota - James Young SG Kentucky
14. Phoenix - Rodney Hood SF Duke
15. Atlanta - Adreian Payne PF Michigan State
16. Chicago - Zach LaVine PG UCLA
LaVine did wonders for his draft stock by simply showing up to the NBA combine with off the charts measurables and now looks like he will be the first point guard (Or combo guard) taken once Exum and Smart are gone. From a physical and skill standpoint, LaVine does pretty much have it all with size, athleticism and a smooth stroke, but his lack of production in his one year of college and tweener status will push him behind the elite point guards like Exum and Smart.
The Bulls have two picks in the high teens and need to take a point guard with Derrick Rose being a permanent question mark and Kirk Hinrich getting on in age and the potential for LaVine to turn into a star will be hard to pass on at this point.
17. Boston - Tyler Ennis PG Syracuse
18. Phoenix - Clint Capela PF Switzerland
19. Chicago - Kyle Anderson SF UCLA
Anderson is one of the most intriguing players in the draft, but his lack of athleticism is going to push him out of the lottery. Still, his incredible inside-outside skills at 6'9 will get him off of the board in the middle of the first round when there should be a run on small forward types.
The Bulls could use a small forward to fill the void left by Luol Deng and I think there should be a wealth left at this point, headlined by Anderson, who will be the most attractive as a player with the versatility to play four different positions.
20. Toronto - T.J. Warren SF NCState
21. Oklahoma City - Jerami Grant SF Syracuse
22. Memphis - Cleanthony Early SF Wichita State
23. Utah - Elfrid Payton PG Louisiana-Lafayette
24. Charlotte - Jusuf Nurkic C Bosnia & Herzigovina
25. Houston - K.J. McDaniels SF Clemson
26. Miami - Shabazz Napier PG UConn
27. Phoenix - C.J. Wilcox SG Washington
Wilcox is old for a prospect going into the draft, has durability questions and has a limited game, but every team in the NBA needs pure shooters and there might not be one as pure as Wilcox in this draft. Also, at 6'5 he has the size to get his shot off at the next level and has enough athleticism to play on the wing and not be a liability.
At this point in the draft, you aren't usually going to find a future All-Star, so you might as well take a player like Wilcox who already has a fine-tuned skill that can immediately make an impact even if he is probably a career bench player.
28. LAClippers - Jordan Adams SG UCLA
Adams' stock took a major hit in the NBA combine as he showed his lack of athleticism along with height, but Pac-12 fans already knew that those weren't his calling cards, it's his strength and intense competitive streak. Despite his physical limitations, Adams is the type of player that can flat out play basketball and score form the mid-range (a dying skill that is still needed) and the talent level at shooting guard in the league right now is as low as I can ever remember it.
The Clippers could really use another player that can get at the basket and score off feeds from Paul as they relied far too heavily on the aging Jamal Crawford in this year's playoffs. Local product Adams would be a perfect fit as he can get near the basket from the guard spot and not have to rely on staying hot from the outside.
29. Oklahoma City - P.J. Hairston SG D-League
30. San Antonio - Glenn Robinson III SF Michigan
31. Milwaukee - Kristaps Porzingis PF Latvia
32. Philadelphia - Mitch McGary PF Michigan
33. Cleveland - Bogdan Bogdanovic SG Serbia
34. Dallas - Semaj Christon PG Xavier
35. Utah - DeAndre Daniels SF UConn
36. Milwaukee - Walter Tavares C Spain
37. Toronto - Jarnell Stokes PF Tennessee
38. Detroit - Vasilje Micic PG Serbia
39. Philadelphia - Spencer Dinwiddie PG Colorado
The 6'6 combo guard looked like he might be a lottery pick before he went down with an injury this season and unfortunately that knee injury has knocked him down about 30 picks or so on most boards. If a team is willing to take a risk on Dinwiddie recovering from his injury, they will be getting a long player that can play the point or shooting guard and defend with his length on the other end.
The 76ers have an insane amount of picks (some of which I'm sure they will trade), but their amount of picks will allow them to take flyers on players who other teams might not want to take a risk on and Dinwiddie might be the best "flyer" prospect in the entire draft, or, at least in the second round.
40. Minnesota - Artem Klimenko C Russia
41. Denver - Isaiah Austin PF Baylor
42. Houston - Patric Young PF Florida
43. Atlanta - Nick Johnson PG Arizona
44. Minnesota - Thanasis Atetokounmpo SG Greece
45. Charlotte - Johnny O'Bryant PF LSU
46. Washington - James McAdoo PF North Carolina
47. Philadelphia - Jahii Carson PG Arizona State
Another flyer player of sorts, Carson has as much pure basketball skill and savvy as anyone in the draft, but he is only 5'10. I love him as a second round pick (and even a late-first rounder) though and could easily see him turning into a Nate Robinson or Isaiah Thomas.
Once again, the 76ers can risk taking a guy like Carson with all of their picks and they could trade him to a team that needs a fresh point guard coming off the bench if they need to.
48. Milwaukee - Jordan Clarkson PG Missouri
49. Chicago - Jabari Brown SG Missouri
50. Phoenix - Deonte Burton PG Nevada
51. Dallas - Dwight Powell PF Stanford
A slightly bigger but less-skilled Kyle Anderson, Powell is a 6'10 guy that can handle the ball and distribute but could struggle banging down low at the next level and doesn't have the skills to be an NBA perimeter player. His game has some holes, but it is rare that you will see a player as skilled as Powell in the second round.
The Mavericks are in transition and could use an injection of youth at about every position, particularly power forward where Dirk Nowitzki continues to age and be brought up in potential trades.
52. Philadelphia - Russ Smith PG Louisville
53. Minnesota - Devyn Marble SG Iowa
54. Philadelphia - Damien Inglis SF France
55. Miami - Nikola Jokic C Serbia
56. Denver - DeAndre Kane PG Iowa State
57. Indiana - Cory Jefferson PF Baylor
58. San Antonio - Markel Brown SG Oklahoma State
59. Toronto - Moussa Diagne C Senegal
60. San Antonio - Khem Birch PF UNLV
