Final Pacific Takes 2019 NBA Mock Draft: only four Pac-12 players in first round

Our final mock draft before the 2019 NBA Draft.

NCAA Basketball: NCAA Tournament-Washington Huskies vs Utah State Aggies Rick Osentoski-USA TODAY Sports
  1. New Orleans - Zion Williams PF Duke
  2. Memphis - Ja Morant PG Murray State
  3. New York - RJ Barrett SG Duke
  4. Lakers - Jarrett Culver SG Texas Tech
  5. Cleveland - Darius Garland PG Vanderbilt
  6. Phoenix - Coby White PG North Carolina
  7. Chicago - Cam Reddish SG Duke
  8. Atlanta - DeAndre Hunter SF Virginia
  9. Washington - Jaxson Hayes PF Texas
  10. Atlanta - Bruno Fernando C Maryland
  11. Minnesota - Sekou Doumbouya SF France
  12. Charlotte - Rui Hachimura SF Gonzaga
  13. Miami - Nassir Little SF North Carolina
  14. Boston - Goga Bitadze C Republic of Georgia
  15. Detroit - Kevin Porter Jr. SG USC - Porter has been flying up draft boards since teams have taken a closer look at him after the season. He has a 6’5 220 NBA body and flashed enough in one season at USC to make him a borderline lottery prospect.
  16. Orlando - Mfiondu Kabengele PF Florida State
  17. Brooklyn - PJ Washington PF Kentucky
  18. Indiana - Nickeil Alexander-Walker SG Virginia Tech
  19. San Antonio - Nic Claxton PF Georgia
  20. Boston - Matisse Thybulle SG Washington - A solid Playoff team with three picks in the first 22, Boston has the freedom to take a specialty player like Thybulle and would be the perfect landing spot for him. I wouldn’t be shocked if his defense gets him pulled off the board at Boston’s number 14 pick either.
  21. Oklahoma City - Tyler Herro SG Kentucky
  22. Boston - Bol Bol C Oregon - What did I saw about Boston being able to take project/specialty players? Bol would be a steal at this point as a player with as much potential as any player in this draft after Williamson.
  23. Utah - Keldon Johnson SG Kentucky
  24. Philadelphia - Brandon Clarke PF Gonzaga
  25. Portland - Cameron Johnson SF North Carolina
  26. Cleveland - Romeo Langford SG Indiana
  27. Brooklyn - KZ Okpala SG Stanford - The 6’8 guard with great athleticism and all-around skills would be a steal this late in the first. Like Thybulle, I could see him having an impact on a Playoff team right away.
  28. Golden State - Daniel Gafford PF Arkansas
  29. San Antonio - Luka Samonic PF Croatia
  30. Milwaukee - Ty Jerome PG Virginia

Second Round

31. Brooklyn - Carsen Edwards PG Purdue

32. Phoenix - Dylan Windler SG Belmont

33. Philadelphia - Naz Reid C LSU

34. Philadelphia - Talen Horton-Tucker SG Iowa State

35. Atlanta - Grant Williams PF Tennessee

36. Charlotte - Chuma Okeke SF Auburn

37. New Orleans - Lugentz Dort SG Arizona State - I love Dort’s game and think he has a great chance to have a long career despite going in the second round.

38. Chicago - Moses Brown C UCLA - I think the 7’2 Brown could easily have turned himself into a borderline lottery pick with an All-Pac-12 sophomore season, but he’s still going to get a second round shot even though he’s super raw.

39. Dallas - Jontay Porter PF Missouri

40. Sacramento - Eric Paschall PF Villanova

41. Atlanta - Isaiah Roby SF Nebraska

42. Atlanta - Terance Mann SG Florida State

43. Minnesota - Louis King SF Oregon - Another player who could have made himself a guaranteed first rounder with a good sophomore season who will have to play his way up from the second round.

44. Philadelphia - Jordan Bone PG Tennessee

45. Detroit - Tyler Cook PF Iowa

46. Orlando - Adam Mokoka SG France

47. Sacramento - Tacko Fall C UCF

48. Clippers - Jalen Lecque SG Brewster Academy

49. San Antonio - Jalen McDaniels SF San Diego State

50. Indiana - Darius Bazley SF Princeton, Ohio

51. Boston - Deividas Sirvydis SF Serbia

52. Charlotte - Quinnday Weatherspoon SG Mississippi State

53. Utah - Jaylen Nowell PG Washington - Nowell’s abilities as a combo guard and mid-range game will get him drafted somewhere in the second round.

54. Philadelphia - Zach Norvell Jr. PG Gonzaga

55. New York - Kris Wilkes SF UCLA - I’m surprised the 6’8 shooter isn’t closer to the first round, but he lacks overall skills that have kept his draft stock down.

56. Clippers - Admiral Schofield SF Tennessee

57. New Orleans - Tremont Waters PG LSU

58. Golden State - Shamorie Ponds PG St. John’s

59. Toronto - Brian Bowen SG Australia

60. Sacramento - Kenny Wooten PF Oregon - I simply like Wooten’s game too much to predict him not getting drafted.
