NBA Mock 1.0

I’m not a big fan of ‘mocking’ the NBA draft because it usually involves a lot of unexpected, hard to predict trades – but, I thought I’d give it a shot this year. My NBA Mock 1.0 will include all of Round 1 and list the next 8-10 players I’d expect to be picked (or who have a chance to move into the 1st round as the draft nears). Im not quite as thorough in my analysis of the NBA Draft, due to international players and the ‘potential’ factor, because I’m less familiar with why teams draft young, developmental guys over proven players. Nonetheless, here is my first attempt (probably not my last either) at a NBA Mock.
