The New York Knicks select SF Deni Avdija.



Knicks didn't get any help moving up in the draft by the lottery Gods, but they get lucky here with Deni Avdija landing to the 8th pick. The PG position is still an area of weakness, but Avdija brings playmaking from the SF position and would be a really nice fit alongside other young Knicks, RJ Barrett, Kevin Knox and Mitchell Robinson. If the Knicks can develop their young talent and treat them right, they could start to make noise once again. If not, the cycle will continue. They muffed it up the last time they drafted a Euro (and now Porzingis is enjoying Dallas).

The Washington Wizards select:

Obi Toppin, F, Dayton



The Wizards, quite simply, are devoid of talent. This is a BPA scenario. He and Rui could be an interesting and fun tandem going forward. If John Wall can get healthy and return to form, he and Obi running the break would be quite the show

Not gonna lie, D, I thought Cole Anthony would've been the perfect Knicks pick. New York kid, fills a big time need at PG, pretty high ceiling, imo

The Cleveland Cavaliers proudly select

Isaac Okoro, SF, Auburn



6'6, 220, with a 6'9 wing span and just an overall great athlete. Built for the modern NBA on defense, can force his way through screens with his strength or switch off and defend the modern PF no problem. He is a project and should take a million 3s a day to really fulfill his potential but he is starting with all the right tools.

I'll be shocked if he's a lottery pick. But happy as well because that would mean another good player will be available at 15 for the Magic.

I almost took Kira Lewis for them though.

The San Antonio Spurs select PG Tyrell Terry, Stanford



The Spurs seem like the type of team that would place a high value on Terry. He's a modern day PG with lights out shooting, super high BBIQ (recently broke the record score on a test administered by several NBA front offices), good control and craftiness with the ball. Reminiscent of a Trae or Steph coming out of college is enough for them to pull the trigger here. Dejounte Murray is a nice PG but San Antonio has a chance to hit big here. If at worse, he's Patty Mills, that kind of shooting is still a high commodity to have in this system.

The Sacramento Kings select: SF/PF Patrick Williams Florida State

The Kings are desperate for defense, length and athleticism, the 3 traits that best describe Patrick Williams. Williams is far from a finished product and won’t have to see the floor early playing behind Harrison Barnes and Marvin Bagley at the Forward spots. He’ll likely spend some time in the D League developing his offensive game but I wouldn’t be surprised to see him get playing time by the end of the season.

Darius Garland - Dante Exum
Collin Sexton - Dylan Windler - Kevin Porter Jr.
Kelly Oubre Jr. - Issac Okoro - Cedi Osman
Kevin Love - Larry Nance Jr. - Alfonzo McKinnie
Andre Drummond - Jordan Bell

move Garland for any sort of production and they are a playoff team in the East

I kinda like the lineup of Sexton Okoro Oubre Nance Love

Pelicans take

Aaron Nesmith, G/F, Vanderbilt



Reasoning: Because he can shoot and I want shooters around Zion

Celtics select Kira Lewis, PG

Brad Wanamaker isn't really a long term solution as Kemba's backup. Lewis is a great athlete with good college production and doesn't turn 20 until next April. Kind of a similar skillset to Terry Rozier who Stevens made decent use of.

Pelicans roster

PG: Jrue Holiday/Lonzo Ball
SG: JJ Reddick/Nickeil Alexander-Walker
SF: Brandon Ingram/Josh Hart
PF: Zion Williamson/Aaron Nesmith
C: Jaxson Hayes/Nicolo Melli

Need a veteran center but otherwise a pretty solid/deep roster with a lot of shooters to me.

Pistons roster
PG: Tyrese Haliburton/Derrick Rose
SG: Bruce Brown/Tony Snell
SF: Luke Kennard/Sviatoslav Mykhailiuk
PF: Blake Griffin/Sekou Doumbouya
C: Christian Wood

Yeah whatever

Let's continue this. Just make sure at least 3 picks go by before you make a pick so people can have a chance.

With the 15th pick, the Orlando Magic select Guard, Jahmi'us Ramsey, Texas Tech.



Magic need a scoring guard who can get consistent buckets in the worst way. Fournier and Ross are too streaky and Fournier especially is a no show in the playoffs. Ramsey can score on all 3 levels, can create his own shot or play off the ball. At 6'6, he also has a reported 6'10 wingspan which is sure to get the attention of the Magic front office.

Fultz - Ramsey - Okeke - Isaac - Bamba would at least seem to work theoretically. Stars would need to align with health, development, and opportunity though.
