Issac
Smith
Wagner
Suggs
Fultz


Bench

He's the same vein as Grant/Bey, but imo, I dont think you can go wrong with having big wings. Lineup versatility and whatnot. Not like the Pistons have size anyway
Now they kinda have to go all-in this summer on Ayton.

Kings in a weird way dodged a bullet. Imagine they're picking 4th and they still have Haliburton, Mitchell and Fox? They probably take Ivey anyway.

That wouldn't work as both Issac and Smith play the 4. It'd essentially be the same situation that they have now where they have a logjam of bigs which has everyone playing out of position.


Issac is a multi-positional defender. There’s really no one outside of Embiid that will give him trouble at the 5.


They could switch everything and play 5 out. Chet is the better player, it could work either way but I think Jabari gives you more flexibility, defensively

Thunder/TSC
Portland probably ends up moving that pick since it didn't jump. They could probably move to 12 with the Thunder & use Bledsoe/12 to go get Jerami Grant since their so high on that for some reason.

Portland is in the worst spot of half started a rebuild while having Dame on the other side of 30 making $40+ million so their not really in a rebuild.

Sabonis
Panchero

At this point, can they trust Issac to stay healthy or is he even concerned with playing basketball at this point. The easier fit would have been a guard as Anthony isn't a starter and they can't trust Fultz at this point to become that dude.

They fukked up in waiting too late in the season to start tanking. Yeah they had an impressive 2nd half doing so, but other teams had a head start over them.

OK. In hindsight, I don't think my mock draft was upended too much, but Hammond needs to go with the person that helps his team the most and not think Giannis is in every draft.


So for my latest mock,
1. Orlando Magic- Paolo Banchero, F, Duke
2. Oklahoma City Thunder- Chet Holmgren, F, Gonzaga
3. Houston Rockets- Jabari Smith, F, Auburn
4. Sacramento Kings- Jaden Ivey, Purdue
5. Detroit Pistons- Benedict Mathurin, G, Arizona
6. Indiana Pacers- Keegan Murray, F, Iowa
7. Portland Trail Blazers- Jalen Duren, C, Memphis
8. New Orleans Pelicans- Shaedon Sharpe, G, Kentucky
9. San Antonio Spurs- Jeremy Sochan, F, Baylor
10. Washington Wizards- Dyson Daniels, G, Ignite
11. New York Knicks- TyTy Washington, G, Kentucky
12. Oklahoma City Thunder- A.J. Griffin, F, Duke
13. Charlotte Hornets- Mark Williams, C, Duke
14. Cleveland Cavaliers- Johnny Davis, G, Wisconsin
15. Charlotte Hornets- Ochai Agbaji, G, Kansas
16. Atlanta Hawks- Ousmane Dieng, F, New Zealand
17. Houston Rockets- Kennedy Chandler, G, Tennessee
18. Chicago Bulls- Malaki Branham, G, Ohio State
19. Telosa Wolves- Nikola Jovic, F, Serbia
20. San Antonio Spurs- Tari Eason, F, LSU
21. Denver Nuggets- Blake Wesley, G, Notre Dame
22. Memphis Grizzlies- Jean Montero, G, Overtime Elite
23. Brooklyn Nets- Christian Koloko, C, Arizona
24. Milwaukee Bucks- Kendall Brown, F, Baylor
25. San Antonio Spurs- Ismael Kamagate, C, France
26. Dallas Mavericks- Ryan Rollins, G, Toledo
27. Miami Heat- E.J. Liddell, F, Ohio State
28. Golden State Warriors- Leonard Miller, F, Canada
