1
76ers
Ben Simmons
PF
6-10LSUSimmons would give the Sixers an elite play-maker. He’d join a young and talented front court while seeing minutes at PG as well. A unique player with superstar potential but the type of player that only works with the right pieces around him.
Magic/Draymond
2
Lakers*
Brandon Ingram
SF
6-9DukeA sweet shooter with great length but a skinny frame, Ingram is a nice fit on the wing in L.A. He brings unique scoring ability and a versatile game to Luke Walton’s team.
Paul George/KD

3
Celtics*
Kris Dunn
PG
6-3ProvidenceBig time talent who can lock it up on D and has explosive offensive ability. Dunn could join a crowded backcourt in Boston or look for this pick to be traded.
longer Eric Bledsoe
4
Suns
Marquese Chriss
PF
6-10
WashingtonA natural talent with great hops and a smooth jumper. Rising up draft boards after strong workouts. Would fit well in the young Suns line up.
Markieff/Blake
5
T-Wolves*
Jamal MurrayPG6-5KentuckyCombo guard who would give the Wolves the best shooter in the draft to help space the floor for KAT. Murray is limited as a defender but has big time scoring ability.
Deron Williams/C.J.
6
Pelicans
Dragan BenderPF7-0CroatiaAgile big man with a nice perimeter game and exceptional length. Has unique passing ability for a 7-footer and can fill it up from outside. Bender could space the floor for AD.
Pau
7
Nuggets*
Jaylen Brown
SF
6-7CaliforniaHigh upside player with great athletic ability, good work ethic but limited skill. Brown would fit well on the wing for the Nuggets.
Harrison Barnes
8
Kings
Buddy Heild
SG
6-5OklahomaA dead-eye three point shooter who can really stretch the defense. Would help space the floor for Boogie but could be a bust like past Kings SGs.
KCP/Brad Beal
9
Raptors*
Skal Labissiere
PF
7-0KentuckyHighly skilled big man who has a ton of upside but is still figuring out how to put it all together. This would be a swing for the fences type of pick for the Raptors.
softer Myles Turner
10
Bucks
Wade BaldwinPG6-3VanderbiltA high level athlete with long arms and big time ability. Can play on or off the ball. Fits the Bucks mold of long athletic players.
longer Monta Ellis
11
MagicJakob Poeltl
C

Willie Burton/Mo Pete
13
Suns*
Domantas Sabonis

Tyler Hansbrough
14
Bulls
Dejounte MurrayPG6-5WashingtonCombo guard who can light it up on the offensive end and has an aggressive style of play. The Bulls youth movement is on.

Derrick Favors
17
Grizzlies
