Pacific Takes Pac-12 Perspective 2017 NBA mock draft 5/24: three UCLA Bruins go in first round

An updated 2017 NBA mock draft now that the lottery order is officially set

NCAA Basketball: NCAA Tournament-West Regional Stan Szeto-USA TODAY Sports
  1. Boston - Markelle Fultz PG Washington - The Celtics don’t need another combo guard who can score, but the choice here is Fultz or Ball and either is too talented to pass up regardless of position. Former Huskies Isaiah Thomas and Fultz would be a really fun combo and Fultz would be an amazing injection for a team that made the Eastern Conference Finals this year.
  2. Lakers - Lonzo Ball PG UCLA - Ball will be a media circus, but hey, the Lakers need something like that right now. He could also be a star and is a local kid to help them build back some buzz.
  3. Philadelphia - De’Aaron Fox PG Kentucky
  4. Phoenix - Josh Jackson SG Kansas
  5. Sacramento - Jayson Tatum SF Duke
  6. Orlando - Jonathan Isaac SF Florida State
  7. Minnesota - Dennis Smith PG NCState
  8. New York - Malik Monk SG Kentucky
  9. Dallas - Lauri Markkanen PF Arizona - A seven foot European with pure scoring skills would be a nice addition in Dallas.
  10. Sacramento - Zach Collins C Gonzaga
  11. Charlotte - Jarrett Allen C Texas
  12. Detroit - Frank Ntilikina PG France
  13. Denver - Donovan Mitchell SG Louisville
  14. Miami - Terrance Ferguson SG Dallas, Texas
  15. Portland - John Collins PF Wake Forest
  16. Chicago - OG Anunoby SF Indiana
  17. Milwaukee - Justin Patton C Creighton
  18. Indiana - T.J. Leaf PF UCLA - The Pacers need to reload their front court and getting a smooth prospect with nice offensive skills could help them climb back up in the East.
  19. Atlanta - Justin Jackson SF North Carolina
  20. Portland - Ike Anigbogu C UCLA - The Blazers need to just keep throwing young talent into their frontcourt. A raw prospect with huge upside like Anigbogu would help.
  21. Oklahoma City - Kyle Kuzma PF Utah - The post-season, pre-draft star has jumped into the first round and would help the Thunder get some more offense out of their frontcourt.
  22. Brooklyn - Ivan Rabb PF Cal - The Nets needs help everywhere, so an NBA-ready power forward who can score is a nice place to start.
  23. Toronto - Luke Kennard SG Duke
  24. Utah - Tyler Lydon PF Syracuse
  25. Orlando - Bam Adebayo PF Kentucky
  26. Portland - Harry Giles C Duke
  27. Brooklyn - Rodions Kuruc SF Latvia
  28. Lakers - Isaiah Hartenstein C Croatia
  29. San Antonio - Hamidou Diallo SG Kentucky

30. Utah - Jonathan Jeanne C France
