2016 NBA Mock Draft


*With the NBA season still going, most of these picks are not accurate*

qlpk0etqwelv8artgc7tvqefu1. Philadelphia: Brandon Ingram, Duke

Ben Simmons is obviously very good too, but I was more impressed with Ingram throughout the season. The 76ers are already set up front with Nerlens Noel and Jahlil Okafor, and drafting Simmons would be overkill. Simmons is a versatile forward that can shoot, something the 76ers could use. To be honest, the 76ers would probably be smartest to trade down and draft Buddy Hield or simply take him first because their backcourt situation is so weak and they’ll be adding another forward when Dario Saric comes over.

uig7aiht8jnpl1szbi57zzlsh2. LA Lakers: Ben Simmons, LSU

The Lakers already have quite a few talented pieces and Simmons would form a solid foundation with DeAngelo Russell, Julius Randle and Jordan Clarkson.

3. Boston: Dragen Bender, International

slhg02hbef3j1ov4lsnwyol5oBender is held in high regard amongst the scouting community, though I don’t know much about him. The Celtics need a bit more help up front than they do in the backcourt, so right now I’d assume they’d go Bender over Hield.

238437020144. Phoenix Suns: Henry Ellenson, Marquette

This might seem high for Ellenson but I think as we get closer to the draft he’ll rise up draft boards, then again, I did think Christian Wood should have been a lottery pick so I’m probably wrong. Regardless, the Suns have a lot of backcourt talent and they’d be smart to add a big man that can shoot next to Alex Len.

zq8qkfni1g087f4245egc32po5. Minnesota T’Wolves: Buddy Hield, Oklahoma

I’m admittedly a huge Hield fan, and think he deserves to be a top-three pick. The T’Wolves are one of the worst three-point shooting teams in the NBA and it was even rumored the team tried to move on from Ricky Rubio. Whatever his role is, Hield will put up a lot of points.

4962268120146. New Orleans Pelicans: Jamal Murray, Kentucky

Murray had a huge freshman season at Kentucky scoring 20 points per game and hitting 40 percent of his threes. While the Pelicans could look for a small forward, they could lose Eric Gordon and Norris Cole in free agency. Murray could instantly become the Pelicans starting shooting guard and be an outlet for Anthony Davis against double-teams.
xeti0fjbyzmcffue57vz5o1gl7. Denver Nuggets: Kris Dunn, Providence

The Nuggets have a lot of talent and I’m not exactly sure what they plan to do with it all. Emmanuel Mudiay had his moments as a rookie and it’s possible they plan to move him to shooting guard and pair him with Dunn.
8328. Sacramento Kings: Denzel Valentine, Michigan State

This is probably high for Valentine because it simply seems people are aversed to drafting Seniors in the top-10. Still, Valentine is the perfect player for a Kings team that could be losing their starting point guard and don’t have any three-point shooting.
227457820169. Toronto Raptors: Deyonta Davis, Michigan State

It’s been nice to see Bismack Biyombo make himself so much money during the playoffs and him doing so will leave the Raptors with a big hole. Davis may not be able to replicate the effort that Biyombo plays with, but he may be the best rebounder/shot blocker left.
2258275201610. Milwaukee Bucks: Skal Labissiere, Kentucky

The relationship between Greg Monroe and the Bucks hasn’t exactly gone swimmingly, Labissiere could be his eventual replacement.

wd9ic7qafgfb0yxs7tem7n5g411. Orlando Magic: Marquese Chriss, Washington

Still only 18 years-old, Chriss still has a long way to go but may be one of the most talented players in the draft. He is somewhat similar to Aaron Gordon but probably has better offensive upside.
m2leygieeoy40t46n1qqv055012. Utah Jazz: Domantas Sabonis, Gonzaga

Sabonis is the ultra-athlete big man that a lot of teams like to draft but he is as good a rebounder and as fundamentally sound as they come. Sabonis would give the Jazz two quality big man off the bench with Trey Lyles.
2384370201413. Phoenix Suns: Jaylen Brown, Cal

Many would deem this too low for Brown, but if he’s there he could be a contributor for the Suns at small forward right away.

hj3gmh82w9hffmeh3fjm5h87414. Chicago Bulls: Dejounte Murray, Washington State

If anything, the Bulls could use a small forward or a versatile guard behind Derrick Rose and Jimmy Butler.

xeti0fjbyzmcffue57vz5o1gl15. Denver Nuggets: Furkan Korkmaz, International

Consider how much talent the Nuggets have and considering they could have three top-20 picks in this draft, Korkmaz wouldn’t have to come to the NBA right away.
slhg02hbef3j1ov4lsnwyol5o16. Boston Celtics: Malachi Richardson, Syracuse

The Celtics could be losing Evan Turner in free agency, and while Richardson isn’t as versatile, he would offer a better scoring punch.

17. Memphis Grizzlies: Wade Baldwin, Vanderbilt

If Mike Conley bolts in free agency, the Grizzlies have to draft a point guard.
307918. Detroit Piston: Chris LeVert, Michigan

Could essentially be this drafts Evan Turner and the Pistons could use help at backup shooting guard and point guard.
xeti0fjbyzmcffue57vz5o1gl19. Denver Nuggets: Thon Maker, High School

Whoever the Nuggets draft here isn’t likely going to play much, so why not take a big swing?
308320. Indiana Pacers: Ben Bentil, Providence

I’m not exactly sure what Nate McMillan is planning on doing but the Pacers struck gold with Myles Turner in 2016. Bentil could be a versatile forward next to Turner.

22064092015

21. Atlanta Hawks: Taurean Prince, Baylor

Would be an instant upgrade over Kent Bazemore and Thabo Sefolosha at small
51201926201522. Charlotte Hornets: Diamond Stone, Maryland

Al Jefferson isn’t getting any younger and the Hornets don’t have much depth up front.
slhg02hbef3j1ov4lsnwyol5o23. Boston Celtics: Timothe Luwawu, France

With their fourth, yes fourth, first round pick, the Celtics grab someone that doesn’t have to come to the NBA right away.
qlpk0etqwelv8artgc7tvqefu24. Philadelphia 76ers: Malik Beasley, Florida State

Hollis Thompson and Nik Stauskas aren’t exciting options at shooting guard, Beasley had a really solid freshman season.
bvv028jd1hhr8ee8ii7a0fg4i25: LA Clippers: Brice Johnson, UNC

Could be Blake Griffin’s backup and eventual starter whenever Griffin wants to punch someone again.

qlpk0etqwelv8artgc7tvqefu26. Philadelphia 76ers: Demetrius Jackson, ND

The 76ers could be looking for a new point guard if they lose Ish Smith this summer.
2274578201627. Toronto Raptors: Isaiah Whitehead, Seton Hall

Eventual replacement for Demar Derozan if he leaves via free agency.
2384370201428. Phoenix Suns: Stephen Zimmerman, UNLV

The Suns have a lot of picks in this draft and you can never have enough big men with upside.

82729. San Antonio Spurs: Damian Jones, Vanderbilt

Who knows how long Tim Duncan will be around for, if he retires, they’ll need to find his replacement. Jones is nowhere the player Duncan is, obviously, but he could be a solid big man in the NBA.

qhhir6fj8zp30f33s7sfb4yw030. Golden State Warriors: Michael Gbinije, Syracuse

I suspect Harrison Barnes will be on a new team in 2016/17, I could see him wanting an opportunity to do more on a team. If that’s the case, Gbinije could be his replacement.
