Our final Pac-12-focused NBA mock draft for 2017

  1. Philadelphia - Markelle Fultz PG Washington - It looks like the 76ers traded up to pick the fleeting Husky. Fultz will enter the league as a first overall pick from the Pac-12, but Pac-12 fans will barely even remember him.
  2. Lakers - Lonzo Ball PG UCLA - Ball is a perpetual PR controversy, but it seems the Lakers are going to go ahead and take him. He probably has the highest ceiling of any player in the draft.
  3. Boston - Josh Jackson SG Kansas
  4. Phoenix - De’Aaron Fox PG Kentucky
  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 - Markkanen has one of the most-interesting skill sets in the draft and will be a nice chest piece on one of these teams up here in the draft who need to reload at every position.
  10. Sacramento - Zach Collins C Gonzaga
  11. Charlotte - Luke Kennard SG Duke
  12. Detroit - Frank Ntilikina PG France
  13. Denver - Donovan Mitchell SG Louisville
  14. Miami - John Collins PF Wake Forest
  15. Portland - Jarrett Allen C Texas
  16. Chicago - Bam Adebayo PF Kentucky
  17. Milwaukee - Justin Patton C Creighton
  18. Indiana - Harry Giles PF Duke
  19. Atlanta - Justin Jackson SF North Carolina
  20. Portland - T.J. Leaf PF UCLA - Leaf is pretty high in a really nice pack of power forwards in this year’s draft. He could help Portland’s frontcourt score right away.
  21. Oklahoma City - D.J. Wilson PF Michigan
  22. Brooklyn - Ivan Rabb PF Cal - Rabb’s NBA stock has seemed to cool ever since he showed up at Cal, but he is still a first round pick and one of the best power forwards in the draft.
  23. Toronto - Kyle Kuzma PF Utah - Kuzma on the other hand has moved up boards recently. He could help the Raptors get more offense from their frontcourt.
  24. Utah - OG Anunoby SF Indiana
  25. Orlando - Ike Anigbogu C UCLA - A 6’10 250 guy who can play inside always has a spot in the NBA. One with as high of a ceiling as Anigbogu has should go in the first round.
  26. Portland - Anzejs Pasecxnicks C Latvia
  27. Brooklyn - Terrance Ferguson SG Dallas, TX
  28. Lakers - Semi Ojeyele SF SMU
  29. San Antonio - Jawun Evans PG Oklahoma State
  30. Utah - Frank Jackson PG Duke

Second Round

31. Atlanta - Jordan Bell PF Oregon - Bell is one of those guys who doesn’t make sense as an NBA player, but who seems just too purely skilled to not have make a career out of it. I feel he could be a great bench player on a good team.

32. Phoenix - Isaiah Hartenstein PF Germany

33. Orlando - Tony Bradley C North Carolina

34. Sacramento - Tyler Lydon PF Syracuse

35. Orlando - Johnathan Motley PF Baylor

36. Philadelphia - Caleb Swanigan PF Purdue

37. Boston - Wesley Iwundu SF Kansas State

38. Chicago - Thomas Bryant C Indiana

39. Philadelphia - Josh Hart SG Villanova

40. New Orleans - Derrick White PG Colorado - White’s stock could get him into the first round, but I think he is an early-second rounder, which isn’t bad.

41. Charlotte - P.J. Dozier PG South Carolina

42. Utah - Jonah Bolden PF Australia

43. Houston - Dwayne Bacon SG Florida State

44. New York - Damyean Dotson SG Houston

45. Houston - Mathias Lessort PF France

46. Philadelphia - Dillon Brooks SF Oregon - Another flat out great player who is a second rounder because they aren’t pure NBA players. Someone will take him in the second round hoping his game can transition to the NBA.

47. Indiana - Sindarius Thornwell SG South Carolina

48. Milwaukee - Alec Peters PF Valparaiso

49. Denver - Tyler Dorsey SG Oregon - Keep the Oregon train going. I think Dorsey might actually be the best Duck NBA player because of his shooting ability.

50. Philadelphia - Sterling Brown SG SMU

51. Denver - Cam Oliver PF Nevada

52. Washington Frank Mason PG Kansas

53. Boston - Edmond Sumner PG Xavier

54. Phoenix - George De Paula PG Brazil

55. Utah - Monte Morris PG Iowa State

56. Boston - Vlatko Cancar SF Slovenia

57. Brooklyn - Jaron Blossomgame SF Clemson

58. New York - Devin Robinson SF Florida

59. San Antonio - Aleksander Vezenkov SF Greece

60. Atlanta - Davon Reed SG Miami
