Starting my first mock, with measurements being out I figure Ill give it my mock draft 2 cents and update my tiers later on.

This isn't how I rank the players just my guess at who teams will draft

1. Suns, Doncic

2. Kings, Ayton

3. ATL, Bagely ( I bet they trade down from this spot, the bulls moving up to this spot makes sense maybe #7+#future 1st + Porter for #3)

4. Memphis, Porter (if healthy he gives them potential immediate offense) (also rumored to want to move down)

5. Mavs, Bamba

6. Magic, J Jackson (could and should go earlier but if he falls he is a great magic fit, think his range is 3-6)

7. Bulls, W Carter (if they make ATL trade drafting T Young and trading away Schroeder makes sense)

8. Cavs, T Young

9. Knicks, Gilgeous-Alexander (this will be the shocker pick of the lotto but long term SGA and Frank N make for a dynamic super long back-court) 

10. 76ers, Z Smith (not as big as some hoped and a project but projects as an elite athlete and  defender who can shoot the 3, could be perfect compliment to Simmons, this is as earlier as I think he goes think his range is 10-17)

11. Hornets, Sexton ( if Knicks go with a wing then I put SGA at this spot)

12. LAC, Mikal Bridges

13. LAC, Walker

14. Nuggets, Miles Bridges (this is as late as I can see him falling I think his range is 8-14)


15. Wizards, Williams ( if he plays well he could end the Gortat and Wall drama)

16. Suns, Knox ( is an ideal modern swing man in theory, this could raise his draft stock I see his range as 9-17)

17. Bucks, T Brown

18. Spurs, J Porter ( high skill project big man could go higher I see his range 13-21)

19. ATL, DiVincenzo

20. T Wolves, Bates-Diop

21. Jazz, Spellman

22. Bulls, Hutchinson (rumored promise)

23. Pacers, Holiday

24. Blazers, Evans

25. Lakers, Robinson (rumored promise but with his potential could see him going higher)

26. 76ers, Musa

27. Celtics, Okogie (I have been super high on him for a while and the Cs brought him in for an early workout)

28. Warriors, Allen ( could provide perimeter depth as early as rookie year)

29. Nets, Trent Jr

30.ATL, Melton

I actually started this much co planning on having Huerter and Divencenzo both gone before the Cs pick. As I looked at player workout and rumors with some gut feeling mixed in it worked out that both where available.

Huerter is 1 year younger and 3 inches taller. That coupled with their nearly identical stats lead to me going with Huerter.

I haven't seen Wagner in the first round anywhere...  How do you connect him to the Wizards?  A rumor? 

If the draft plays out like this...I'll be clamoring for Khyri Thomas first and Divincenzo second..  To satisfy my guts until summer league proves me out of my gourd.

Iíve seen Wagner at the tail end of the first round occasionally.  As a Michigan fan, Iíve seen him play more than Iíve seen any other player in this draft.  Great kid, very talented offensively ó and is rightly pegged as a fringe 1st-rounder at best.  15 is arguably 25 spots too high.

Wagner's defense keeps him at the beginning of the second round. I love the kid but not being a two way player is going to limit a lot of these picks. It's almost better to be a Marcus Smart than a Greg Monroe.... It's the big problem with the Raptors. They don't have defenders. Offense wins in the regular season but you need two way players in the playoffs.

So, a question for some of you drafniks:
Who is still available that wasn't drafted but was ranked in the top 70 or so that we can sign as free agents?

No one.  If youíre undrafted and have multiple offers, why would you choose the Celtics, who might not be able to get this yearís first rounder minutes, have a similar problem with a second-year 1st rounder, and have potentially four 1sts next year?  If youíre trying to latch on in the NBA, there are frankly many better options.
