Checkout Walterfootball’s NBA Mock Draft Database & DCProsportsreport’s NBA Mock Draft Database

Minnesota Timberwolves: Karl Anthony-Towns, C

zq8qkfni1g087f4245egc32po

There isn’t a clear number one pick at this point, but Towns may have a leg up. He has the size, but an interesting aspect of his game is that he actually makes free throws, 81 percent last year.

Los Angeles Lakers: Jahlil Okafor, C

The Lakers front-court was pretty bad in 2014 with them forcing to use Carlos Boozer, Tarik Black, Jordan Hill, and Ryan Kelly. Okafor can’t hit a free throw, but he’s the second best prospect in this draft.

Philadelphia 76ers: DeAngelo Russell

I’ve flipped between Russell and Mudiay here for the past few weeks, but right now it seems Russell is the pick. The 76ers also have interest in Kristaps Porzingis, which could be a fit because Joel Embiid had another setback, but who knows.

New York Knicks: Kristaps Porzingis

2nn48xofg0hms8k326cqdmuis

For the Knicks, it will probably come down to the best guard available or Porzingis. Right now, the Knicks and Phil Jackson supposedly like Porzingis so he’s the pick.

Orlando Magic: Justise Winslow, SF

The Magic have too much young talent on their roster as it is, and they may be better of trading the pick. However, if they keep the pick and don’t resign Tobias Harris then Winslow could be an option.

Sacramento Kings: Willie Cauley-Stein

832

The Kings have been looking for a front court mate for DeMarcus Cousins for years now. Cousins supposedly wants the Kings to take Cauley-Stein, and if I’m them I’m doing anything to make him happy. Regardless, Cauley-Stein is the best rim defender in this draft, and could be surprising offensively with all the attention Cousins requires.

Denver Nuggets: Emmanuel Mudiay, G

xeti0fjbyzmcffue57vz5o1gl

I’m a big Mudiay fan and he could go anywhere from three downs in this draft. There are rumors that the Kings are interested in Ty Lawson, and if Nuggets were serious about moving him, they would need a new point guard.

Detroit Pistons: Mario Henzonja, G/F

3079

The Pistons starting five is surprisingly great, but Tayshaun Prince shouldn’t be the starting forward heading into 2015.

Charlotte Hornets: Stanley Johnson, G/F

512019262015It seems the Lance Stephenson project is over, and Gerald Henderson isn’t someone you want starting. Johnson is a complete package that can do a bit of everything, and he already has an NBA ready body.

Miami Heat: Devin Booker, G

burm5gh2wvjti3xhei5h16k8eDwayne Wade could be booking it to Los Angeles or Cleveland which would open a huge hole at shooting guard. The Heat don’t really have any impact scorers, so Booker would fill a huge need.

 Indiana Pacers: Myles Turner

3083The Pacers supposedly want to move on from Roy Hibbert to play at a faster pace, and Turner would be much more suited for that play style.

Utah Jazz: Frank Kaminsky, C

m2leygieeoy40t46n1qqv0550The Jazz are set with Rudy Gobert and Derrick Favors, but could use depth.

Phoenix Suns: Rondae Hollis-Jefferson, SF

23843702014This will probably be considered a reach, but Hollis-Jefferson fills a huge need at small forward. The Suns are horrible defensively, and Marcus Morris is a liability at small forward. RHJ’s skills were on full display against Ohio State, as was his energy, and is the type of player a team could fall in love with.

OKC Thunder: Sam Dekker, F

khmovcnezy06c3nm05ccn0oj2The Thunder have a hole at shooting guard, and though Dekker may be too big for the position, he would be a huge asset next to Westbrook and Durant.

 

Atlanta Hawks: Kelly Oubre, F

22064092015The Hawks finished with the best record in the Eastern Conference, but could be losing starting forward Demare Carroll in free agency.

Boston Celtics: Trey Lyles, PF

slhg02hbef3j1ov4lsnwyol5oThe Celtics have a young backcourt, but Jared Sullinger has dealt with injuries and condition issues at the four.

Milwaukee Bucks: Robert Upshaw, C

zq8qkfni1g087f4245egc32poUpshaw was dismissed from Washington, but his potential will be too big to pass up for some teams. The Bucks took what was considered a risk on an unknown Giannis Antetokounmpo, and look how that paid off.

Houston Rockets: Cameron Payne, G

8xe4813lzybfhfl14axgzzqeq (1)Patrick Beverly is okay starting next to James Harden, but they at least need a backup point considering they are currently rolling with Jason Terry

Washington Wizards: Bobby Portis, F

21956712016The Wizards are a bit old on the front court or they could look for a quality guard behind Wall and Beal.

Toronto Raptors: Montrez Harrell, F

22745782016Amir Johnson is a free agent this offseason and hasn’t done enough to warrant being re-signed.

Dallas Mavericks: Tyus Jones, G

ifk08eam05rwxr3yhol3whdcmIf the Mavericks lose Rajon Rondo they would need to find a replacement without anyone up for the job on the roster.

Chicago Bulls: Jerian Grant, G

hj3gmh82w9hffmeh3fjm5h874Aaron Brooks is an okay backup for Rose, but chances are Rose gets hurt so the Bulls need some protection at the position.

 Portland Trailblazers: Justin Anderson, G/F

bahmh46cyy6eod2jez4g21bukNic Batum is a free agent in 2016 and hasn’t done much to inspire the Blazers to re-sign him.

Cleveland Cavaliers: Kevon Looney, F

e4701g88mmn7ehz2baynbs6e0The Cavaliers will need a power forward depending on if Kevin Love’s bolts in free agency.

Memphis Grizzlies: Delon Wright, G

793Courtney Lee and Vince Carter aren’t exactly an inspiring duo, and Tony Allen can’t be trusted offensively.

San Antonio Spurs: Rashad Vaugh, G

827The Spurs are the hardest team to pick because the big three could just call it quits. Regardless, they could go in any direction.

 LA Lakers: Jarell Martin, F

uig7aiht8jnpl1szbi57zzlshThe Lakers are so bad they could go anywhere. Sure they have Julius Randle getting healthy, but it’s never a bad idea to draft another big.

 Boston Celtics: Christian Wood, C

slhg02hbef3j1ov4lsnwyol5oThe Celtics have a nice backcourt with Isaiah Thomas and Avery Bradley, but their bigs leave a lot to be desired. I have them taking two big men in this draft, but it doesn’t seem the team wants to go ahead much further with Jared Sullinger or Kelly Olynyk.

Brooklyn Nets: R.J. Hunter, G

hsuff5m3dgiv20kovde422r1fHunter is a great shooter but desperately needs to gain weight. The Nets have Joe Johnson, but he doesn’t figure to be a factor for much longer.

 Golden State Warriors: Chris McCullough, F

qhhir6fj8zp30f33s7sfb4yw0The Warriors are going to lose Draymond Green, and it’s going to take a lot to replace him, but McCullough could fill that role.
